Holly Willoughby reduced to tears twice on 'This Morning'

Holly Willoughby confessed to being brought to tears twice on This Morning after spending time with a rescue puppy called Missy.

As Willoughby was joined by her co-host Phillip Schofield, two representatives from ‘Three Counties Dog Rescue’ and four puppy siblings up for adoption, she confessed to being particularly moved by one of the pups.

“So here are, four dogs with very different personalities!” said Schofield. “Missy made Holly cry this morning!”

“This dog has made me cry twice today!” Willoughby confessed. “And it’s not just me! Anyone who holds Missy and holds her paws – she’s just – she’s just amazing! She has a really special energy!”

The 37-year-old presenter also shared a picture of Missy on her official Instagram account, with the caption: “I’m in love… meet Missy… she’s looking for a home… today on @thismorning we are talking to @threecountiesdogrescue about all the wonderful work they do…”

Willoughby reportedly had another teary moment last week during the National Television Awards. After This Morning won best Daytime show and Ant & Dec won the best Presenter award, she was allegedly overwhelmed with emotion.

Following Willoughby stepping into McPartlin’s shoes to host last year’s I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! some had predicted she would scoop best Presenter award. But it was not to be, and Ant & Dec won for the 18th year in a row.

A showbiz insider source told The Sun: “Holly had a good cry with her husband Dan. She was totally overwhelmed by the outpouring of love from her This Morning crew after the ceremony.”

“They were all telling her how loved she is and how they couldn’t believe she didn’t win the gong. The amount of genuine empathy got too much for her.”
