Watch: Children who lost BOTH parents to cancer get to keep home

You may remember that heart wrenching picture of a mother and father holding hands in a hospital bed just days before they both lost their battle with cancer.

Today their children have been saying thank you to the public who helped raise more than a quarter of a million pounds to make sure they could stay together and keep their family home.

The eldest son of Julie and Mike Bennet, Luke, told Phil and Holly on This Morning how thankful he and his siblings are at the generosity of strangers.
