For social distancing reasons, we cannot hug you right now, but we can offer this delightful video of Andrew Scott (aka "Hot Priest" from Fleabag) reading "Everything is Going to be All Right," by Irish poet Derek Mahon.

The video of Scott's poetry reading was posted by Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke, who recently launched a series of celebrity poetry readings for charity.

True to form, Scott reads this lovely poem in his usual charming fashion, and the video leaves you with an overarching feeling that everything will be okay after all.

"The sun rises in spite of everything," continues Scott.

"I lie here in a riot of sunlight/ watching the day break and the clouds flying/ Everything is going to be all right."
