It also contained funny lyrics such as "have you seen my brother's hair" and "do I change my underwear".

The song concluded: "We will join the people's heroes. We will phone those left alone. Our grandparents are miles away.

I think it's just that family coming together and doing that. It's just so nice.

"Tomorrow we'll be far away, tomorrow is a judgement day, tomorrow we'll discover what Tesco Online has got in store.

"One more day."

After the song was played, Holly became teary as she said: "Bravo! Bravo! I love that. It makes me really emotional."

"I think it's just that family coming together and doing that. It's just so nice."

As the family appeared on the programme via video call, Phil joked: "Look what you did to Holly!"

Holly said: "There are so many families out there trying to think of things to do and there's something magical that happens when a family does that and comes together."

Mum Danielle revealed their Facebook post has racked up over 400,000 views since Sunday afternoon (March 29).

She added: "It is completely surreal, it has been the craziest 40 hours.

"We recorded it after tea on Sunday and we thought we'd put it up and tag a few friends so they can have a bit of a laugh.

"A few people then asked if they could share it and it just snowballed."

This Morning airs on ITV, every week day, at 10am.
