Bradley Walsh and his son Barney shared an incredible father-son moment on their ITV series Breaking Dad this week.
The Chase presenter had no idea that in honour of his 60th birthday, his 23-year-old son had arranged for his favourite opera singer, the iconic Andrea Bocelli, to give his dad a special private performance.
Bradley started to realise something was on the cards when his son brought him to a stunning Italian residence.
Andrea appeared and greeted the pair, before sitting down at his grand piano in one of the opulent rooms at his home.
Wearing his signature tux and blacked-out glasses, the famous singer crooned Time To Say Goodbye accompanied by a violinist.
Overwhelmed by the moment, Bradley broke down in tears and tried to hold it together, completely floored by the stunning once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Beaming at his dad, Barney wrapped his arm around him and the pair shared a moment of bonding they’ll never forget.
Emotional viewers flocked to Twitter watching the scenes.
"Watching a teary @BradleyWalsh meeting @AndreaBocelli has, for some reason had me in tears too! Brilliant!" one person shared.
Another cried: “OMG I'm in tears watching @BradleyWalsh#BarneyWalsh#BreakingDad What a beautiful surprise having @AndreaBocelli singing for him xxx."
"#BreakingDad amazing show had me in tears @BradleyWalsh @AndreaBocelli,” a third posted.
While a fourth wrote: “That was incredible so emotional what a wonderful moment for Bradley and Barney #BreakingDad.”
