Dan Osborne is heartbroken as his nan dies of coronavirus and his granddad misses her 'like mad'

DAN Osborne has been left heartbroken by his beloved nan's death from coronavirus.

The 29-year-old reality TV star begged her to give his grandad strength, saying he misses her "like mad".

Revealing on her birthday she had passed away a few days ago, Dan told how his super-fit nan was a picture of health less than two weeks ago.

She had even been working every day before the pandemic.

Dan told fans: "Happy birthday to my nan too.

"Can't believe after all these years on this planet we lost you to this virus.

"It's only been a few days and grandad missed you like mad.

'Please give him strength.

"We love you nan."

After revealing the sad news, Dan was bombarded with condolence messages from fans.

He said in a video on Instagram: "Just want to say thank you for all the messages wishing your thoughts and love to my family.

"Obviously it sucks. Anyone with old people in your life, be super careful.

"My nan was fine a week and a half ago and now she's not with us. It sucks.

"It hasn't even sunk in yet. She was going to work every day before all this rubbish happened."

Dan's personal family tragedy comes as national hero, Captain Sir Tom Moore, battles Covid-19 and pneumonia in hospital.

The war veteran, who was awarded a knighthood by the Queen for raising millions for the NHS, was admitted to hospital in Bedford after struggling with his breathing.

Meanwhile this weekend saw a record-breaking 598,389 Covid-19 jabs given out in 24 hours in the UK.

The total number of Brits who have now received at least one dose of the vaccine has now reached 8,977,329.

Matt Hancock told BBC Politics East today he was confident that "vast majority of adults will have been vaccinated" by the summer.

The Health Secrtary said: "In six months we'll be in the middle, I hope, of a happy and free Great British summer.

"I have a high degree of confidence that by then the vast majority of adults will have been vaccinated."
