Dr Alex George has bought his mum a £21,000 Mini Cooper.
The former 'Love Island' star thanked his mum Jane for her unwavering support over the years by gifting her the car of her dreams.
Sharing some behind-the-scenes photos of Jane and her dog Paddington, he wrote on Instagram: "SURPRISE [heart emoji] Mum has always put my brothers and I first and made so many sacrifices for us over the years.
"For as long as I can remember, Mum has been saying that one day she would love a drive in a convertible Mini. Well Mum, you now have one of your own, which you can drive every single day!
"I hope you love it Mum, Paddington is certainly excited for a spin with the roof down. (sic)"
Meanwhile, Alex recently announced he was taking a break from work after a "long and hard year".
The A&E doctor told fans he was taking a week off to "look after [his] physical and mental health".
Alex, 30 – who lost his 19-year-old brother Llyr to suicide last year – wrote on Instagram: "It’s been a long and hard year, which ultimately takes it’s toll. I have really felt it this week and I am aware I need a break. I am taking a full week off from Tuesday. Recognizing when you are becoming stressed and acting on it, is so important.
"There are good times on the horizon as well as things I want to achieve, most importantly in my role but also in my personal life and with my new brand (which I am rather proud of). To be able to do this I need to look after my physical and mental health. Never be ashamed to take a break, when you need it. I believe it’s a sign of self awareness and ultimately strength. Happy Sunday everyone and remember to be kind to yourself (sic)"
