With a more personal message behind it, the Toy Show star dedicated the single to his late father after performing it earlier this month on The Late Late Show.

Michael told RTE's 2FM: "One day mum was making me breakfast in a pan and I looked over and my dad was a chef and so he used to cook me breakfast in the same pan and I was just remembering back to those times."

"It was like a lightbulb moment: why don't I write a song about my dad?"

"This song was different from my other songs. I was writing about a real-life event that happened, and the lyrics embodied how I felt about my dad passing away."

Michael said that initially, he wrote the song for himself and never expected anybody to hear it.

It wasn't until he uploaded it to his Spotify account, which he had made to upload covers, that his world changed.

The 14 year old added: "I thought I would just put it up on my own Spotify which I had just made for a few covers, it would be something I had for my dad because I felt he deserved it. And then Universal got involved and I’ve never been so excited before and now we are always onto the team in Universal and they are so lovely as well."

And while he may be at the top of the charts, the teen is determined to stay humble and take in every second of the journey.
