And fans have joined Spencer in support, one wrote, 'That’s the silliest thing I’ve ever heard! Many men would give anything to even be with their father again, who may have passed, or wish they had a better relationship with their father. How many in this pandemic can’t go near their fathers. This is a good thing, to be proud of.'

Another put, 'Not everyone gets the opportunity to go on holiday with their dad and or families. Piers may be a lot of things to different people but he’s a dad and a husband first and foremost and a proud and loving one by the looks of things! Enjoy your holidays Morgan’s! Looks ace.'
