Social media star Jamie Nyland surprised his father, Richard, by paying off the rest of his mortgage so he could retire early.

Jamie, who lives in Gloucestershire, has over 2.3 million followers on TikTok and thousands of subscribers on YouTube, shared the emotional moment he told his dad the big news.

In a video that's been watched over two million times on TikTok, the 24-year-old walks into his dad's bedroom and chucks a set of house keys at his father.

Confused, Richard catches them and asks why he's given them to him.

"I've just paid off your mortgage," replies Jamie.
