BBC Breakfast goes to break after Louise Minchin moved to tears live on air

BBC Breakfast went to a break this morning after Louise Minchin started crying.

Jon Kay called for the show to go to regional reporters after Louise shed a few tears after a touching segment about a care home.

Presenter Louise was overcome with emotion after seeing how staff at Court House in Somerset spent 84 days apart from their families to keep residents safe during the pandemic.

A clip showed the families of residents singing a rendition of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas as a show of thanks.

“Do you know what? It’s been a year, hasn’t it?” she said, as Jon handed her a box of tissues.

Another offered: “[My husband’s] been in Switzerland and he has been all this year.

“He’s come over for two weeks this entire year with my youngest Andy on holiday and then he went back and I haven’t seen him since.

“I’m just going to repay that moment because it meant so much to me and keep in my mind that one day I will see him again.”
