PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Captain Sir Tom Moore's daughter emotionally spoke about her father on Good Morning Britain following his death. Hannah Ingram-Moore has been a regular on the ITV news programme since her dad shot to national fame following his fundraising efforts during the first lockdown. However, on Tuesday she was close to tears as she appeared to talk to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid for the first time since the World War II veteran's death on February 2. "It is really difficult," Hannah said when asked how she and the family are doing. "We have lost a fifth of our family and it's really hard to say it," she added as she fought back tears.

. Laughing at the request, she replied: "It really is. And you know, he had a sense of humour. That humour runs in the family." This is in reference to comedian Spike Milligan’s famous epitaph "I told you I was ill". She thanked Piers, Susanna and the public for their support (Image: ITV) Hannah also sweetly explained how Captain Sir Tom "was very clear he wanted us to eat Victoria sponge cake and sandwiches afterwards." When revealing the details of his funeral, his daughters shared a poignant passage that Captain Sir Tom wrote for his book before he died, which they said "brings us so much comfort and warmth". In the chapter, Sir Tom writes: “Previously, my funeral would have made one little line in the local newspaper and been attended by only a handful of people, but I expect there’ll be a few more now. “Someone will have to make extra cake and sandwiches, and it won’t be me. “I want the service to end with My Way by Frank Sinatra because I always did things my way and especially like the line about having too few regrets to mention. “It’s odd and rather touching to think that people might weep over my passing – strangers I’ve never even met. “If I can, I’d like to watch my own funeral from a distance. “That would be quite the joke as I looked down and chuckled at everyone making a lot of fuss over me.”
