Gary Barlow and Ronan Keating got the nation's collective heart melting on Instagram yesterday - by singing a tearjerking duet of Ronan's hit song Baby Can I Hold You on Instagram.

The acoustic performance was posted to Gary's Instagram feed and provided some much-needed light relief for many who are self-isolating during the coronavirus pandemic.

The pair can be seen giving it their all as they blast out some lovely harmonies for a truly heartwarming performance. As the song comes to an end, Ronan signs off, saying: "There you go, bro... Love."

The fans, it seems, were absolutely loving it. One wrote: "This actually made me cry 💕💕💕

Another said: "Love your voice with Ronan, beautiful ❤️", while one follower enthused: "Thank you for spreading some love and warmth in the world. Much needed."

One user said: "Aww fantastic song. Thanks for keeping us company."

And one suggested a duet with Robbie Williams, saying: "That’s so beautiful and more than amazing. 😍 I even had the feeling that you were coming through my cell phone at any moment. 😉😅 Please do one with @robbiewilliams that would be a dream 🙏."

Gary and Ronan are among a host of celebrities performing on Instagram to keep spirits up, including Chris Martin and John Legend, who've both put on concerts to boost morale throughout coronavirus self-isolation.

Meanwhile, a recent study showed that listening to music is one of the best and easiest ways to boost your brain health while you're spending a lot of time at home.
