The BBC One documentary followed up on a choir for people living with dementia that Line Of Duty star McClure began in 2019, with the second series showing them recording a single and performing at Splendour festival in Nottingham.
As the emotional programme culminated in the choir getting on stage with McClure, Shaun Ryder, Tom Grennan and Rowetta, viewers shared that they were crying as they watched the choir sing.

After the programme aired, McClure tweeted: "I truly believe @OurDemChoir have just changed the game.

Viewers also praised McClure, whose late grandmother had dementia, for her hard work in campaigning for care.
One person tweeted: "the world would be a much better place if more public figures used their status to be a voice for change, everyone should watch the dementia choir episodes from the past few weeks and see how incredible @Vicky_McClure is on her mission."
Someone else agreed: "Vicky McClure what a phenomenal, inspirational, life changing woman!"
