A 95-year-old man called Bill rang in to BBC Radio Solent during Alex Dyke’s morning show to tell the host that he was lonely and missed his wife.

Once they heard his incredibly sad story, the team quickly ordered a taxi to his house to collect him and whisk him back to the studio as a special guest – becoming ‘the star of the show’.

Bill’s story struck a chord with regular listeners of the show and many jumped at the chance to have a chat with the pensioner, and was warmly received by all.

His wife – who he married last year after being friends for three decades – had tragically been admitted to hospital after a severe fall, and after Bill could no longer give her the care she needed she was sent to a nursing home where he visits her every day.
