The contestants were matched into pairs where they had to play for each other's letters, but Adam Woodyatt missed out on his mail when Kadeena Cox failed to get the task right, as did David Ginola when Danny Miller did not manage to win his letter for him.
Emotions were already running high as Cox and Miller both ended up in tears over not winning their partners' letters, but things were about to get even more weepy when the other letters were read out.

Ginola was in tears as he read out Miller's letter from his fiancee who he had a baby with just weeks before starting the show.
Her letter read: “Dear Daddy, it’s Steph and Albert here. He recognises your voice on the telly and looks up at it when he hears you. I really think he looks more and more like you every day. We all love watching your relationship with David blossom. Thank you David for looking after our boy.
"Finally, remember what I tell you every day, you are strong, you are wise… we feel extra lucky to call you ours. You are our daddy, our only daddy, you make us happy when skies are grey. My first ever love and my last."
Simon Gregson read out Naughty Boy's letter from his sister Saira and niece Aisha which gave an update in his mum, who has dementia and lives with him.

It said: “I’m so proud of you and we’re missing you so incredibly much. It’s been amazing to watch your journey and how far you’ve come from your self-doubts, to overcoming your fears and becoming more and more confident. Mum is doing well and is missing you lots. You can see how proud she is. She talks to you through the TV, it’s the cutest thing. Keep at it, stay strong.”
Gregson, Louise Minchin and Frankie Bridge all received messages from their children, too, while Matty Lee, Kadeena Cox and Snoochie Shy were all emotional at hearing from their parents.
