The Good Morning Britain host shared a very special moment with his Instagram followers last month - and it melted our hearts! He posted a photo of himself with his 27-year-old son Spencer standing outside on what appeared to be their local common. The pair, who are self-isolating separately and hadn't seen each other for 12 weeks, were at least two metres apart. "Nice to see you again son, albeit from two metres. #3MonthReunion," the doting dad-of-four captioned the rare image.

Robbie Williams' wife was recently reunited with her mother Gwen, and she proudly shared the sweet moment on her Instagram. "Socially distant visit with my mommy..." she wrote alongside a picture of her mother sitting outside in their garden whilst wearing a protective mask and gloves. She then posted an image showing her giving her mother a much needed haircut ahead of her next chemotherapy session. "Visits in the garden with my mother are rare since her cancer diagnosis and Covid 19, but I treasure every moment. Mum hadn't had a haircut or color in 6 months... she decided that for this week's chemo session, she wanted to feel good. So, I decided to give my hair cutting skills a go. Split ends gone and a whole lot of mother daughter love instead," she wrote.
