And on Friday, the mother-of-two shared an incredibly emotional – but uplifting – video, which received a huge reaction from her fans.

Terry had revealed that nobody had ever celebrated his birthday before, and he was more than happy to come into work to see his desk decorated with balloons and birthday banners, and even shed a few happy tears.
