“Klay as Captain Sir Tom Moore. He wasn’t too happy with his itchy moustache.”

The heartwarming post has received over 24,000 likes, with her followers dubbing it a ‘brilliant’ costume.

One person wrote: “This is brilliant, love this.”

Another added: “Love this. He’s so cute.”

While a third simply said: “Excellent idea.”

Coleen also shared a photo of Capt Tom’s popular book ‘One Hundred Steps’, titled after his inspirational NHS fundraiser last year.

The children’s picture book, published by Penguin, is in support of the Captain Tom Foundation. Any proceeds made will go to the charity.

The World War II war veteran captured the heart of the nation in 2020, after raising £38.9million for NHS staff welfare. Inspired by his story, the book is dedicated to the man who walked 100 laps of his garden.

In February, while being treated in hospital for breathing difficulties, Capt Tom sadly passed away aged 100.
