The actress also pays her own tribute to care workers, NHS workers and other front line staff who have been helping to keep us safe during the coronavirus pandemic.

Michael and Rob, both from Baglan, also wished everyone “back home” a warm festive period and they also praised health, care and other key workers who will be particularly busy over Christmas and the New Year.

Michael, speaking by video link from the set of a movie in New York wished everyone in Neath Port Talbot a “warm and safe” Christmas while Rob also hoped everyone in his home area would have “the best Christmas it was possible to have” given the circumstances.
