Her dying wish was for her husband to continue watering her beloved plants - which he religiously did day after day.

Her daughter Antonia Nicol, took to Twitter this week to share the bittersweet moment her dad realised he'd been tricked.

But when Fitton's daughter, Antonia Nicol, came to help her father move about a year ago, they discovered the real reason the plants had lasted so long: They were fake.

Ever the dutiful husband, he kept his promise and has "been religiously watering them and keeping them alive", Antonia wrote.

"They look so incredible he made a decision to take them to his new home, only to discover they are plastic".

"Can hear my mum chuckling", Nicol tweeted.

It's also been flooded with comments from people praising her mum's cheeky sense of humour.

"Honestly, we were all so proud of my dad being so dedicated to caring for her plants", Antonia says, "[It] gave him something to do".

She said her father enjoyed the fact that others found the story entertaining, too - so much so that he made a decision to reenact the watering.

She added: "My dad has been overwhelmed by the level of interest and so have I. It's so lovely to hear my friends and family talking and remembering my mum again".

Nigel had been "overcome with grief" after losing Phedre, whom he first met when they were both just 16 years old.

So, where did all of that water go if the plants weren't actually absorbing it?

Her tweet since blew the heck up, clocking up more than 125,000 likes and appearing on dozens of viral news sites.

"My poor dad probably thought the toilet had a permanent leak as there was always water on the floor", Nicol wrote on Twitter.

"When I tweeted it, I thought about 10 people would look at it", she said. "She was an absolute legend for sure", Nicol told one commenter. "In times of very bad news, it's been really lovely to talk about something really sweet".
