Ben Shephard broke down in tears today after a carer separated from her young vulnerable daughter for seven weeks was reunited via video link as Callum Scott sung to them.

Lisa Cave appeared on Good Morning Britain today, separate from her daughter Ruby, who was with her dad Paul.

The mum and daughter's reunion after weeks apart went viral after Lisa was filmed dressed in PPE and hugged Ruby for the first time in seven weeks.

Lisa had chosen to isolate away from her daughter, who was vulnerable because of her asthma, due to her job.

Opening up about the decision to isolate away from Ruby, Lisa said: "It was really, really hard, it wasn't the easiest situation in the world.

"People rely on me that can't look after themselves and ruby understands that herself."

Asked about what it was like to be reunited with her mum, Ruby said: "It was amazing. It couldn't believe it.... she looked really funny. She looked like a snowman!"

Ben Shephard was very emotional on the show today

Speaking about why the song played was so important to her, Lisa said: "It's about everything I would do for her... to hold her again in my arms."

The mum and daughter were then surprised by Callum Scott's sudden appearance and he went on to sing their song to them live on the show.

As the pair became emotional so did Ben, who admitted that he had tears in his eyes.

Afterwards, Ben said to Charlotte: "Wasn't that a special moment?"

"Even you had a tear in your eye," Charlotte responded.

Ben added: "I did, I did!"
