Today BBC Breakfast saw Louise Minchin cry over touching news from families of residents of a nursing home – and viewers wept with her

During the morning episode of BBC One on Wednesday (23 December) Louise and her co-host Jon Kay shared a heartwarming story about a Somerset nursing home

To ensure the safety of the residents during the pandemic, the employees selflessly locked themselves in the apartment for three months

And a tribute to the families of the residents was paid to both Louise and those who watched at home tearfully

They did something amazing and say it for so many of us

Jon said, “Well, now the families of those who live there would like to thank the staff in time for Christmas”

After that, Louise choked when she said, “You know what, it’s really been a year, hasn’t it I can’t really speak ”

She continued, “What’s really touching about it, you have done something amazing and you are saying it on behalf of so many of us”
