Holly Willoughby can't fight the tears after meeting an adorable little boy who lost his sight.
10-year-old Declan Bitnead suffered an allergic reaction back in 2015 which tragically led him to lose his eyesight.
He spent three weeks in intensive care before being diagnosed with Stevens-Johnsons syndrome; rare disorder affects the eyes and skin.
Holly burst into tears after This Morning gave Declan the opportunity of a lifetime; he would be a mascot at England's Euro 2020 qualifying game against the Czech Republic at Wembley this March.
Declan's smile lit up the room and he agreed to take part, at which point Holly was reduced to tears by his pure joy.
"It was your face when we told you it was just so nice’, she said as Phillip Schofield handed her a tissue.
Declan's mum Ashley elaborated on how her poor little boy "vomited blood" and his skin was peeling off; ‘It burns you inside and out,’ she said, praising Declan's sunny nature and positive attitude.
"When we went to a hospital to ask about his left eye, which was his better eye, and we were hoping that we were able to do something. The doctor actually said there’s nothing that we can do," she said.
"Me and Andy, my husband, were devastated and I said to Declan, “how do you feel?” and he said, “Well it doesn’t matter I’ve still got my right eye”. He sees the positive in everything," she said, beaming at him.
What a special story, Declan really is a sweetheart.
