Jason Manford shared a sweet video with his Nana Leah on Friday as he revealed she had died months before her 100th birthday. 

In the clip, the comedian and his Nan, 99, who had dementia, were singing Nat King Cole together.

Music was an important way for the star to connect with her, as despite her illness, she was still able to remember the words and sing along.

He took to Twitter to post the video, writing: 'Goodnight Nana Manford, we were so lucky to have you in our lives for so long. 99 years of wonderful moments & incredible memories.

'Even when dementia took hold, she loved music. Whether making cardigans for kids or bullets for Lancaster bombers, she was an inspirational woman.'
