The model’s appearance comes after she tragically lost her father to cancer last Wednesday.

On Sunday, she revealed how ‘painful’ it was to witness her dad, 67, take his last breaths after battling the disease for eight years. 

The devastated model explained that Chris – who was a firefighter for 33 years – felt so guilty about being in pain that he would apologise to the family.

‘He was such a good man, he would say sorry to me, my sister and mother for being in pain,’ she told The Daily Telegraph.

Robyn added: ‘Witnessing dad’s battle with cancer and watching him take his last breath was painful.’

Chris died from acinic cell carcinoma, one of 12 cancers linked to fighting fires and caused by exposure to carcinogens and foam.  

Robyn said Chris, who was also a jet refueller, was regularly exposed to chemicals and asbestos and she called for there to be better masks and more awareness about toxic materials.
