"Keep showing Grace. Keep on, the world needs you to believe in the good. 2021 is coming :-) Hold on. SMILE. :-)."

The mum-of-two captioned the sweet photo: "Written on a whiteboard on Derek’s ward to spur on staff and patients - not sure if have walked [past] it before or it's new, but definitely spoke to me today.

"Wonderful words as we brace ourselves for another week in these grim times - see you from 6am on @gmb with a smile."
