@RyanJDay: We all knew @LukeAyling_8 was a great actor, having seen years of the flop, but he’s really turned it up a notch here! Could be the new Vinny Jones.

@HeppellTron: Awwww made me proper smile this. Lovely.

@lufc_eric: What an emotional video, those cameos made my day. I love Eddie so much.
