Johnny’s father Timothy Murphy said that his son had always backed himself to win an Emmy, and said that he had been telling them he was going to do it “for many years”.

“We supported him as best as we could in the pursuit of that dream” he said.

“And he was the most diligent person I have ever known, in his work ethic on that journey.

“As for the local reaction…we are still celebrating and have not been out yet, but answering all the well wishers.

“It’s a great day for us as a family, and for Johnny and Melissa.”
