Home and Away fans, listen up – Christmas may feel like 100 years ago now, but one story from over the festive season has us feeling all warm and glowy again.

Ethan Browne has shared an adorable video of him surprising his daughter with a big old hug, after being separated from her for months upon months due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

"Surprising my daughter after almost a year apart," he wrote in the caption. "A moment I have dreamed and fanaticised about for so long. I can't articulate how tough this stretch has been. It's indescribable and incomprehensible.

"COVID has taken away our ability to travel freely, and physically be with our loved ones. But love transcends the physical, and the distance and lost time has only strengthened our bond. We're here and now, and our hearts are full again.

"To the parents who have been separated from their children because of this year's events, and to those who can't see their loved ones at Christmas, I send you all my love and strength. To my daughter, you are my entire heart."

Ethan's character Tane Parata is in big danger in the week's UK episodes, and you can check out some pictures detailing what happens right here.

Home and Away airs on Channel 5 in the UK, and Channel 7 in Australia.
