A Scottish disabled Babestation viewer received a ‘surprise’ phone call from one of the TV station’s ex-models after she heard about his amazing offer.

Thomas Weir has been a loyal fan of Laura Jones ever since he saw her on the box eighteen years ago.

The 50-year-old loves her, in fact he’s so besotted by the model he wants to leave her £20,000 in his will.

Having heard about the cash Jones called Thomas Wednesday night to tell him she will accept the offer and spend the money on her kids and lingerie for her modelling carer.

Weir, from Greenock, Inverclyde, told Daily Record: "When Laura said 'hello' down the phone I was shell-shocked.

"We had the most amazing conversation that lasted over two and half hours.

"She's just so lovely."

Thomas, who now lives in Milton Keynes, believes his days are numbered after battling diabetes and an MRSA infection.

He made a public appeal on Monday to track down Laura, within 24 hours the model said she “didn’t want to take” the money, but by Wednesday she had changed her mind.

Thomas said: "Laura explained that she wasn't comfortable with having the money.

"She suggested I use it for a bucket list, but you can hardly do things like jump out of a plane with one leg.

"She then came up with the idea of drum lessons as she knew I used to play, but I've had lessons before.

"If she took the money in the end she asked if it would be okay for it to go towards her young children as well as clothes and lingerie for her modelling career.

"Nothing is set in stone but she is the most beautiful person and I want her to have it."

Mr Weir first saw Laura on adult channel SXTV in 2001 after being tipped off by one of his mates to tune in.

Jones left the channel between 2003 and 2010, but returned a year later.

Weir, who missed her seven year break, said: "I was on an adult channel and saw a live chat line segment called 'Laura Live' and it was her.

"I was astounded, my heart was thumping faster than it had ever done before.

"I could feel blood pumping right through my veins and thought I was going to have a heart attack."

In March Thomas called Laura during her show.

"We really connected," Thomas said.

"The chat was not about sex or relationships in any way.

"We spoke about our own lives, the news and sport teams as I'm a lifelong Greenock Morton fan.

"She told me about her passion for orange chocolate and we spoke about the band, Simple Minds."

A month after he called in again.

"In April 2011 we had a brief conversation just to catch up, again nothing sexual.

"Our third conversation was last night."
