He used an old railway cattle carriage as the framework for an incredible gift for his mum – her very own mobile holiday home.

When Simon showed her the finished result, it blew Carol away.

“Oh wow, oh it’s fab, it’s lovely,” she said, stunned over the gorgeous interiors. “It’s great, cosy.”

The inside included stained-glass windows and white panelling, while the sleeping space featured a proper bed and colourful natural lighting.

George said of the bedroom: “This is a mezzanine fit for a queen.”

Getting teary eyed, Carol said: “No one’s ever done anything like this for me before.”

She revealed she had a list of places she really wanted to see, including Cornwall.

Afterwards, the mother and son sat with George to talk through the project, which Simon revealed ended up costing around £24k.

Simon said: “Time’s precious for us, isn’t it mum? To get on that road and start getting out there… I wish my dad was here.”

He grew tearful as he said, “It was one of my dad’s dreams, to do this” and his mum leaned over to give him a big hug.

The touching ending to the programme had viewers at home feeling emotional.
