Samuel Johnson has spoken about losing sister Connie, her legacy and what comes next ahead of her funeral on Saturday.

The actor paid a visit to Fifi, Dave Fev and Byron on Tuesday morning to talk about his plans to make as much money as possible for the worthy cause – as well as how he's coping.

"Am I sad? Yeah. Is my sister gone? Yeah. But I've had years to prepare for this," he said. "I'm stronger, I mean, I've got her in me. How can you call her a loss when every day I'll see her as a gain?" 

"You could see me in a year's time from now and you could go 'how's the loss of your sister going?' and I'll go 'still not a loss, mate.'

"She's my gain. She lost. She lost a lot." 

Connie – a tireless advocate who funded cancer-research charity 'Love Your Sister' – passed away following a battle with breast cancer on September 8 aged just 40.


She died after being awarded the Order of Australia, which is typically handed out on Australia Day, for helping to raise more than $7 million dollars.

He's also rolling out a line of socks in honour of his sister to 'try and cover this cancer conundrum from head to toe' and says while he'd like to reach $10 million, the sky is the limit.
