“Not a dry eye in the house… speaking for myself.”

Maisy Dickson had never spent a night away from her father Chris, 43, until he went into hospital to have his bladder removed. Chris was diagnosed with bladder cancer six years ago and underwent several rounds of chemotherapy – but kept getting new tumors.
Maisy was expecting him to be in hospital for two weeks as he recovered from the gruelling nine-hour operation. But the father-of-three came back to their home in Morecambe, Lancashire after just nine days – and kept his return a secret so he could surprise his youngest daughter.
Maisy was kept in the dark about his return and her mother Sharon told her to go upstairs and check her phone for a Snapchat update from her father, apparently recovering in hospital.
But when Maisy looked at the photo, she saw it was a selfie of her father lying on the sofa in their living room asking for a hug. Shocked, she sprinted downstairs to greet her father, who was recording the moment she ran into the room.
