Kelvin Fletcher has shared the adorable he surprised his dad with a brand new Bentley for his 60th birthday.
The former Strictly Come Dancing champ, 37, left his father all choked up as he gifted him with the luxury car that he’d always dreamed of having.
Taking to Instagram, Kelvin paid tribute to his dad on his milestone birthday and gushed over how ‘lucky’ he and his brothers are to have him.
The former soap star posted a snap of his dad overcome with emotion over the generous gift. He was seen in tears and with his hand over his mouth, as Kelvin surprised him with the car in the driveway.
Other snaps saw Kelvin’s dad proudly standing alongside his new ride, while another saw Kelvin, his younger brothers and their dad all enjoying a drink together.
Kelvin wrote: ‘They say a picture says a thousand words. Happy 60th Dad.
‘My hero, my friend and my Dad. You’re the kindest soul I know and you’ll put anyone before yourself. We know how much you’ve always dreamed of this car so to see your face yesterday made my heart burst with pride and happiness.
‘You deserve it and we are so lucky to have you ❤️.’
Kelvin thanked those who helped him to pull of the surprise and cutely added: ‘He actually said to us “how long have I got it for” ? Forever Dad it’s yours!
Fans and Kelvin’s celebrity pals loved the surprise, with his former Emmerdale co-star Sammy Winward (who played his onscreen wife Katie Sugden) commenting: ‘Love this Kelvin. His face on the first picture is everything ???.’
Adam Thomas posted: ‘That’s what life’s about,’ while Strictly host Tess Daly responded with two love hearts and Michelle Visage cooed: ‘THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL.’
When he’s not planning and pulling off huge surprises, Kelvin has been enjoying some downtime in lockdown with his family and their new puppy.
The actor is married to wife Liz Marsland and they share two children; daughter Marnie and son Milo.
Last year, it was revealed Kelvin had been busy filming for the new series of Death In Paradise alongside Jason Manford and Ralf Little.
Comedian Jason confirmed the news on social media in September alongside a snap of himself and Kelvin on a plane. He wrote: ‘Oh and it’s Kelvin fletcher and we’re off to Guadeloupe to film Death in Paradise.’
Season 10 returned to BBC last month on January 7 and fans have since watched Kelvin’s guest appearance where he plays Gavin Jackson – a guest whose wife Cherry is found dead in their villa.Credit: Original article published here.
