A fourth added: “Thankfully he lives long & strong, a beautiful and emotion story so well told. Tearing up”

Viewers of the BBC show were at awe by Jeff's story when he confessed that he worked with a trainer to find the strength to walk his daughter down the aisle.

“I had little goals, let’s see if I can turn over in bed without my oxygen,” he said.

“As I progressed my most important goal was I wanted to walk my daughter Hayley down the aisle and I didn’t think I could do it.

“I had my oxygen tank up my nose. But I had some wonderful trainers. You never know what life has in store for you.”

The legendary actor added how "bizarre" his recovery experience was, especially when he returned to end the filming of his new Disney Plus drama The Old Man.


He concluded: "I was down for two years, and after coming back from being away for two years it was like a bizarre dream.

"It was all the same guys, actors and crew, it was like I had a long weekend and came over and said, 'Hey, I have had the most bizarre dream'."
