“I worry about the finances because the girls have to do a lot of running around for me and I feel guilty that they have to do that. This can be a thank you to them so thank you so so much.”

After hearing Chris’ heartbreaking story, Phil said: “Do you know what we’re going to do? We’re going to double it,” then joked: “You’ve got the bag of shizzle as well!”

Chris replied: “Can I just say, thank you so much for getting me through the lockdown. And thank you for today.”

Viewers took to social media following the sweet moment, with one writing: “SPEAK YOUR STORY, CHRIS. No-one better cuss Chris about telling her story. The worries she has and her disability being stopped is because of the government actively hurting the citizens they feel are below them. So glad that £6000 is going to help.”
