Love Island's Dr Alex George surprises his mum with £21k Mini Cooper after tragic death of his brother

LOVE Island's Dr Alex George has surprised his mum with a £21,000 Mini Cooper.

The 30-year-old wanted to thank mum Jane for her never-ending support throughout his life by treating her to her dream car.

Alex, who tragically lost his brother last year, shared an incredibly emotional video of the amazing reveal. 

Jane couldn’t believe her eyes as she walked out of their home in Wales and realised what was waiting for her.

She broke down in tears as Alex repeatedly told her it was hers,  as she exclaimed “no way”.

Sharing a series of pictures of the moment, car fanatic Alex told his followers: “SURPRISE ❤️ 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.”

Alex and his family have had an incredibly difficult 12 months after his teenage brother Llyr took his own life after suffering from mental health troubles. 

Dr Alex has described his younger brother as "bright, talented, funny, empathetic and good-looking".

The star has said his brother had no prior history of a diagnosed mental health condition, and never disclosed how he was feeling to him or other family members.

Llyr, 10 years younger than Dr Alex, was due to start medical school following in his big brother's footsteps.

Alex said Llyr was a lover of cars and motorcycles.

On top of that Alex has been working on the coronavirus frontline throughout the pandemic so has been unable to see his family as much as he would have liked. 

However he returned to his family home in Wales over the weekend to be reunited with his parents and surprise his mum with the car.
