You may recall Tom - who lives with Tourette’s syndrome as well as Asperger's, dyspraxia and ADHD - from his appearance on ‘The Undateables’ back in January (although, frankly, we were in such a swoon at the time that his moment on the show is a bit of a blur to us).
So, we were pleased to see him return to our screens on Friday, giving his mum a special pre-Mother’s Day treat.
Sitting with his mum on the panel, Tom read out a tear-jerking letter letting her know just how much her support over the years has meant to him.
Introducing the emotional moment, Andrea McLean told her: “I know that you’ve said that it’s not necessarily easy for Tom to express himself, so he wrote a few words down.”
And then, the tear-fest began.
Tom read: “Dear mum, thank you for putting up with me over the years, I know it hasn't been easy for you and we've been through some dark places and dark times.
"And I always find it hard to show my emotions towards you but today I want to tell you deep down how much I love you…there’s no love like a mother’s love. You’re like a lioness looking after their cubs."
