It all started on his Facebook page where he posted about trying to find a ‘freaky doll thing called Luvabella’ for one of his eight-year-old twin daughters.

In the post he asked whether it’s suitable, after noting the ‘suggested age for it is 4-6! anyone got one? is it good?’

The replies came in thick and fast, but one in particular stood out.

One of his fans, Louise Rowland, left her own personal story about being unable to obtain the doll.

‘My gal wants one too, I lost my 8 year old in august in a road accident so this year they will get what we can afford..sadly the doll isn’t in our budget xx’ she wrote.

The sympathy came pouring in and it seems Jason himself noticed the heart-breaking tale and replied directly.

‘Louise, i’m so sorry for your loss, how awful. I’ve managed to track one down for my girls, I would love to buy your girl one too. Let me know x’

While Jason vowed to help the mum out, it was fellow fan Fiona Broom that came to the rescue as a makeshift Santa, after revealing she had a spare one.

‘I’m sending mine off to Louise tomorrow xxx…it will be from all of us…’ Fiona replied on the thread, much to the delight of Louise and her family.

Since the kindhearted gesture, Jason asked: ‘Oh wow Fiona, are you sure? I don’t want your daughter going without? I managed to find a local toyshop with supplies. x’., before offering the woman and her family free tickets to one of his Christmas shows for the selfless gesture.

See, good things can happen on Facebook after all.

A true Christmas miracle!
