HOLLY Willoughby teared up as a This Morning caller asks for advice after suffering from a miscarriage during lockdown.
The presenter, 39, and co-host Phillip Schofield sat with TV psychologist Emma Kenny as they helped with viewers' coronavirus anxieties while in lockdown.
A woman named Sarah – who had changed the name for the show – called in to speak about her tragic miscarriage experienced while in isolation.
As Holly led into the caller, her voice broke as she said: "Oh, Sarah, I'm so sorry, I've just read the top line here. You are going through a horrible time. Are you OK to read this?"
Sarah asked Holly to say it, so she continued: "You are with your partner and you're at home, and I'm so sorry but you are going through a miscarriage.
"Obviously, you can't see friends to support you through this and you're finding it very hard. Are you OK?"
Sarah replied: "Yeah I just wanted a bit of advice really."
Psychologist Emma gave her advice, saying: "I think the hardest thing about having a miscarriage is, even if you have a partner with you, you feel like it's a very personal journey.
"It's really hard for people to understand what a massive grief and loss it is. So first of all just be aware this is big, this is a death for you and this is something really personal."
Emma also encouraged Sarah to speak to her friends about her experience.
As the call ended, Holly told the called: "Lots of love to you."
An estimate one-in-eight pregnancies in women who know they are pregnant end in miscarriage.
Holly and Phil were among the celebrities sending their well wishes to children in hospital during the coronavirus lockdown.
They filmed the videos in support of Spread A Smile who usually organise hospital visits for children, but can't do so because of restrictions around the coronavirus.
Phil reassured the sick kids: “These are weird times, but everything will get back on track. We’re thinking about you and sending loads of love.”
Holly ended their sweet message by blowing a kiss to all those watching.
