Aoibhin Garrihy has shared an emotional post as her husband John Burke continues his expedition of Mount Everest.

The Dancing With The Stars finalist shared a photo of the pair hugging in the Himalayas as John prepares to continue the challenging journey.

"Said a very hard goodbye to my best friend today as he follows his dream and faces some of the toughest few weeks of his life...could not be prouder of you John Burke no matter what happens," she wrote.

In an earlier post, the former Fair City actress said she is in "awe" of the team who will travel to the peak of the earth's highest mountain.

"Reached Everest Base Camp yesterday...stayed the night there and am in awe of John and all the Ascent Himalayas team who will spend another 5 weeks or more there.

"It's an amazing place but glad to be dropping in altitude already (it doesn't agree with me)...here's to a safe few remaining days in The Himalayas and a safe expedition for the #everest2017 team."

Aoibhin and John, who tied the knot last year, set off on their journey to Nepal at the start of this month.
