HOLLY Willoughby broke down in tears live on This Morning today after a moving interview with nuns who assured her "it will all be okay".
The 39-year-old star admitted that she was taken aback by her emotional reaction to the chat, with co-host Phillip Schofield having to step in to cover her lines as Holly struggled to speak.
The Poor Clares of Arundel nuns, who live alone in a convent in the South East of England, appeared on the show to discuss their choir, with their heavenly album recently topping the charts.
And Holly found their calming words all too much, with tears filling her eyes throughout the interview.
Part-way through the chat, Phil asked about the courage it took the two women to initially join the convent.
Sister Geraldine-Marie explained: "Of course it takes great courage, and you have to believe somewhere that ultimately it will work out and it will be okay."
Holly fought back tears as she admitted: "You're going to make me cry listening to you!"
But she managed to hold it together right until the end, when she burst into tears.
The Sisters had said: "We are really thrilled that something of the essence of our life is helping people.
"We just want to say hat when you listen to our CD if you're at home and you're fed up, or anxious, or feel depressed – somewhere in Arundel in West Sussex there's a community of women.
"We're here, and we're with you. We're making this journey as well."
Holly's eyes visibly filled with tears as she broke down, saying: "Some people just talk and they really get you, don't they?
"Oooh that took me by surprise."
With her voice cracking as she read out details of the album, Holly then sobbed: "It's when somebody says it's all going to be okay…"
Turning to Phil as tears fell she said: "You're going to have to do this bit."
Phil then took on Holly's lines as the show cut to an ad break, and when This Morning returned Holly giggled as she told viewers: "I've pulled myself together now."
But fans at home were just as emotional by the segment, taking to Twitter to share their reaction.
One fan wrote: "The Nuns on #ThisMorning are making me emotional they’re so sweet."
Another added: "I don't know if it’s because of lockdown but @hollywills and the wee nuns have me in tears."
