The man behind a low-budget holiday film has watched more than six million times he again had the nation in tears after making another Christmas tearful. Phil Beastall, from Gloucestershire, said he was "completely overwhelmed "from the answer to" Love is a gift "as thousands of people said was much better than those produced by giants like John Lewis. The 32-year-old has attracted so many fans with his £ 50 production that he was called to help Good Morning Britain promote their Christmas gift campaign. The journey of Million Minutes asks the public to give time to people who suffer loneliness this Christmas. The special film created to support the record was unveiled by Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway this morning. The film begins with a woman who is touched by a hand in the bed, but when she turns around she is alone, before showing a man and a son playing in their garden, but a few seconds later the boy disappears.

The film shows how strangers can make the difference to the lonely people by giving them the time. He said: "It's fun it's not because we're talking about time and time it's a healer". This is the second Christmas now and I can look back and think warmly. Sometimes you do not want to talk to the people closest to you.
