Richard lost his wife Pat to the disease in December 2016, around the same time that Louis’ mum, Johannah Deakin, died aged 43 following secret battle with leukaemia.

During the clip Louis and Richard talk about his experience of his wife’s dementia and the impact it had on him, as he admitted that shortly after her death he would often break down and ‘weep’.

The video is for Louis’ new song Two Of Us, which includes the lyrics ‘So I will keep you day and night, here until the day I die. I’ll be living one life for the two of us.’

The first item on Richard’s bucket list is to fly a helicopter, which he does with the help of a pilot while Louis is sat in the back with a huge smile on his face.

Next up they both take turns driving racing cars around a track, before heading to a tattoo parlour to get inked up – but it’s Louis that ends up with a new tattoo.

The duo then arrive at a theme park where Richard ticks off another item after riding a roller coaster with Louis, who sweetly holds onto his hand during the ride.

Finally Louis introduces Richard to the audience at a huge arena gig, where he delights the crowds with a stunning rendition of Andrea Bocelli’s Con Te Partiro.

Speaking about the video, Sinead Donoghue, Director of Fundraising at Alzheimer’s Society, says: ‘We’re thrilled that Louis Tomlinson’s new video encourages people to donate to Alzheimer’s Society. Richard, who appears alongside Louis in the video, sadly lost his wife to dementia.

‘There is hope for the other 850,000 people living with the condition in the UK today, but we desperately need funds to improve care, develop new treatments and, ultimately, find a cure.’
