"I had to call you in because I'm shaking, I'm shaking," he told James.

A former Pensions Minister has warned that Britain is currently "sleepwalking into a social care crisis", something that Patrick clearly agrees with.

He started his story by paying tribute to his mother: "She's my mum, the best friend I ever had in my life." He then explained just how expensive it was to get proper care for his mum and how bad that care often was.

"You did her proud," said James after hearing Patrick's story. "You did a good job."
