And a number of his followers admitted the scenes with Liam's return left them feeling emotional.

"I blaaarted like a girl when I watched this," said one. "Almost as much as when Mel and Madge sang Spanish Eyes. It's amazing how @DerrenLitten can bring such changes in emotional tempo in all his comedy work."

"Got to be one of my favourite episodes ever," another agreed, adding: "And the look on Lesley's face as Liam enters the stage is priceless. Still brings a tear to my eye! You two should release it as a single."

"Oh the one that makes me cry happy tears," said a third, adding in a separate tweet: "Yep. Cried again tonight."
