"Here's something I thought I'd never say," he told his followers. "I want to send a message to my mother-in-law. I miss you, more importantly to my little girl's grandma. You're here all the time, she loves you, you make her happy and having the two of you run around and get under my feet when you are here, I do actually miss it."

Visibly overcome with emotion, Martin continued: "My wife misses you too, so to grandma as we call you, I miss you. And to all the grandparents out there, who aren't with their grandchildren and who aren't giving them the joy and laughter and the wonderful experience that you had, I wish you the best." His followers were quick to reply, with many sharing his sentiments. "I miss my grandson so much it actually feels as if my heart is breaking! Ps thanks for making me cry....for about the 50th time today," tweeted one fan, while another said: "I am used to you giving me really useful advice but wasn't expecting you to make me cry!" A third person wrote: "Wow that is really lovely. What a nice thing to do. It’s very tough but if we stay safe and well we'll get there."
