Popular children’s entertainer Mr Tumble has “made the day” of a Dundee boy in hospital with an infection by sending him a get well soon video.
The BBC star sent a personalised message to Jonathan Williams, from Linlathen, who is still extremely poorly.
The family had appealed to the TV favourite, real name Justin Fletcher, after the nine-year-old was rushed to Ninewells with a severe form of constipation.
But his condition worsened and the youngster – who also has cerebral palsy and epilepsy – was moved to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh for further treatment.
Complications with the constipation had enlarged Jonathan’s stomach to about three times its normal size and he is now believed to be suffering from sepsis.
Jonathan, who also has developmental delay and learning difficulties, is a huge fan of Mr Tumble.
His mum Shelley Forrester, 33, took to social media in an attempt to get the funnyman to send Jonathan his best wishes as his recovery continues.
And Mr Tumble duly delivered, with a personalised get well message.
In the short video, the entertainer runs through a zany “warm-up routine” of sound effects and funny faces, while wishing Jonathan a speedy recovery, fully decked out in his Mr Tumble costume.
Shelley, who is staying at the hospital in Edinburgh, said Jonathan had become “more alert” but was still seriously ill.
She said: “Jonathan’s bloods are showing high inflammation, so he is back on antibiotics.
“He’s a bit more alert and all going in the right direction.
“I want to thank everyone who helped us with sharing and emails and messages.
“After he got his video message from Mr Tumble, Jonathan was so happy and had a massive smile on his face. It made his day.”
