Produced by Mikey Levelle and Tom‎ Birmingham, the emotional video, directed by Luke Monaghan, has already attracted high praise from fans across the world.

The pair who live in the Chichester area of town, were delighted to have been selected to appear in the video which has already amassed over one million views on YouTube just days after its release.

She said: “We are really pleased with it.

“One of our friends recommended us for it and the person who was doing the auditions got in touch with us and said we would be great for it, so we sent in an audition tape a couple of months ago.

“It was shot locally and got released this week, although the song has been out for a while.

“We were treated really well during filming and it has been a really good experience.”
