"It's been amazing, actually," said Tom Walker about the response to the tune he uploaded to his 57k followers. "There's a lot of people saying a massive thank you, because it's got them through a shift that they were struggling with."

He went on to say that - while he wanted it to be light-hearted; suggesting that NHS staff should get free chicken for life - he wanted to also convey the serious topics, such as washing your hands.

As Capital applauded our carers, Tom shared the song on Twitter, with the caption "The workers at our NHS what a bunch of legends, you’re the best," in which he sang the lyrics "The workers at the NHS; what a bunch of legends - you're the best!"

He later responded to the current trend, which sees people clapping for the key workers, saying "I tell you what, everyone out on the street clapping for the NHS is one of the best things I've ever witnessed."
