Vicky captioned the video, which has been viewed almost 300,000 times, with: ‘We remember their love when they no longer can. This is the first time my mam has sat with her dad, my Granda David, in over a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

‘They’ve now both been vaccinated and as you can see are still taking all the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of themselves and all the other lovely residents of my granda’s care home.

The star described David as a huge fan of music who is the ‘life and soul’ of any party and the ‘beating heart’ of her family, adding: ‘And that is a memory no disease can take from me.’

Vicky also reached out to followers whose lives and families had been impacted by the disease to offer sympathy and support.

‘Lovely to have you along for the ride on my #MemoryWalk today Mr @ercan_ram.
