She said: "Seeing my dad cry which he never does! Was a shock and say he would rather be dead then experience everything he is going through right now… this has totally wiped him out and it's heartbreaking.

"My mum also is extremely extremely unwell with Covid also, this is real!

"And please, please take notice and keep your loved ones safe, it really is petrifying.

"What a difference a year makes …. stay home! stay safe! save lives without your health! You got nothing!"
