Daily Star TV gives you all the latest interviews and spoilers and Ed Gleave will send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

This Morning viewers were left in tears as Josie Gibson reunited military dads with their children and partners on the ITV show.

I'm A Celebrity star Vernon Kay and The Saturdays singer Rochelle Humes were on presenting duty on Tuesday morning as Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby enjoy a festive break.

In an emotional segment, Josie arrived at Lapland to reunite young children with their hero dads who have been away serving for our country.

Josie chatted to two fathers before they got the chance to surprise their kids, leaving viewers at home grabbing for the tissues.

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "It's an emotional rollercoaster #ThisMorning. I couldn't stop laughing at chimney bloke and now I'm crying at kids reuniting with their dads!"

Another added: "Blubbing away at @thismorning."

A third person posted: "I don’t cry easily but I’m gone."

While a fourth social media user said: "When the little girl yelled 'daddy'. I cried."

"#ThisMorning reuniting their kids with their military dads for Christmas has me an absolute mess," a fifth person said.

A sixth viewer said: "Turned the telly on and This Morning was on, Lapland surprises for military children. What an emotional morning already."

Vernon finally made his This Morning debut on Monday four months later than planned due to coronavirus.

Phillip and Holly took an extended break from the ITV show in July and August, with Eamonn Holmes and wife Ruth Langsford stepping in for a seven-week stint as hosts.

Vernon was set to follow in their footsteps in the final week of August, due to present with Rochelle and Alison Hammond.

However, he was forced to miss out after contracting Covid-19 just days before his presenting role.

Holly and Phillip are taking a break over the festive period and Vernon has finally got his time to shine on the ITV show.

Rochelle and Vernon are replacing Holly and Phillip until Thursday and Dermot O'Leary and Alison Hammond will host their usual Friday show.

This Morning airs weekdays on ITV at 10am
