TV icon Des O’Connor is staying indoors as his daughter visits him by window.
The television comedian has followed advice by staying indoors – as daughter Kristina, 32, was seen wearing a tribute T-shirt to her dad outside his home.
TV legend, Des, 88, who has four daughters and a son from his four marriages, returned her proud thumbs-up as he peered through the window.
Des's former Today With Des and Mel co-star Melanie Sykes posted the photos online, saying: "Thought I’d share these brilliant pics of Des O’Connor and his daughter Kristina taken today. Lovely, wonderful Des."
Fan Harvey King pleaded: “Please keep this man safe and sound! Des is an absolute UK legend and one of the last of his kind still around.”
Kristina is Des' daughter by his third wife, Jay Rufer.
