Samuel Hague’s creation – which includes a picture of a heart hugging Planet Earth with the words ‘you make the world a better place’ – will also raise money for the mental health charity Mind.

Samuel said: “The whole idea of the card is to give it to a friend or family member who you know is struggling, and to hopefully put a smile on their face and let them know they matter in this world.

Samuel Hague's charity card.

“100 per cent of the profit will go to the charity Mind.

“If you don’t want a card please just head to www.mind.org.ukdonate and donate generously.

“I know talking about this is easier said than done but if you’re ever having suicidal thoughts or if you’re having a tough time, please reach out to people. Or you can call the Samaritans any time, day or night – 116 123.”

Samuel previously hit the headlines for creating a controversial Valentine’s Day card about Caroline Flack, the former Love Island host who took her own life last Saturday – weeks before she was due to go on trial accused of assaulting her partner Lewis Burton.

Samuel said: “I can only apologise for any contribution I may have inadvertently made to last weekend’s tragic events.

“The amount of guilt I feel is indescribable.

“This has definitely been a massive learning curve.”
