Holly Willoughby breaks down in tears as This Morning airs heartbreaking footage of Ukrainian girl singing

HOLLY Willoughby was overcome with emotion on This Morning today at heartbreaking footage from Ukraine.

The 41-year-old TV star was moved to tears after the show aired a video of a little girl singing in a Kyiv bomb shelter.


The girl, whose name is Amelia, kept everyone's spirits up with a performance of Let It Go from Disney's Frozen.

It left Holly with tears in her eyes as she said: "Such innocence, isn't it."

Gyles Brandreth added: "We're seeing the worst and the best of humanity in this crisis aren't we?"

Camilla Tominey added: "I hadn't seen that before actually. She's the age of my youngest daughter. It's awful."

Her voice cracking, Holly replied: "It's horrible, it's horrible." Then after a long pause she added: "We'll be back after this break."

She later told ITV News host Mary Nightingale, while talking about the challenges of reporting the invasion of Ukraine: "We all just fell to pieces there."

She said: "Despite the ongoing war, the resilience and morale amongst Ukrainian people remains extraordinarily high.

"We have seen many acts over the weekend, a newlywed military couple were pictured getting married on the Ukrainian front lines.

"Love finds a way, you wonder what their married life is going to look like, many of us are optimistic when we say those vows.

"You sort of look at them there, and you think what life are they going into together."

She then introduced the clip of Amelia, which has gone viral on social media in recent hours after being posted on Facebook

Footage of the girl, named Amelia, singing at the shelter was first posted on Facebook by Marta Smekhova, who says she filmed it with permission from the girl's mother.
