A man from Wiltshire, who moved into the garden shed to protect his vulnerable six-year-old daughter from coronavirus, has been shortlisted for Wagon Wheels Epic Dad of the Year.
Carmela Chillery-Watson has been in self-isolation while her dad, Darren, has collected coronavirus samples and delivered them for testing throughout the pandemic.
Darren made the sacrifice to fulfill his key worker responsibilities and to prevent Carmela, who suffers from muscular dystrophy, catching the virus.
Darren, from Market Lavington, is one of five UK dads who have been shortlisted following nominations from friends and family.
The award was formerly bestowed on celebrities but this year it will go to someone who, like Darren, has gone above and beyond to help their families and communities throughout the pandemic.
But Carmela doesn't care about awards - she knows that her dad is great and just wants to have him back.
Darren has shown ITV News West Country around his "humble abode".
The public now has until midnight on Sunday, 7 June to vote for their winner via the following website: www.epicdadoftheyear.co.uk.
