Darrell was diagnosed with terminal illness Multiple System Atrophy  in October 2021.

He decided to make a 'bucket list' with his wife Sarah.

They wanted to tick off things such as going for a fancy meal out, seeing his favourite artist in concert and even mooning at a speed camera.

Darrell explained that he was a keen rugby player, and Andi asked if he had been to Twickenham stadium to watch a game, to which he replied that it was one for the bucket list.

Andi then turned around and bent down to pick up a huge basket from behind the sofa.

Darrell was left gobsmacked as Rochelle explained: "We thought we'd have a go at your bucket list to see if we could help out."

The basket included England vs South Africa at Twickenham tickets, an afternoon tea for two at the Ritz voucher and a holiday to Disneyland Paris for the whole family.

Darrell's two young daughters - who were watching from behind the camera - burst into tears at the news.

Rochelle said: "Oh no! Are they happy tears?! Oh goodness me, you're setting me off."

Andi ran over to give them a cuddly toy of Mickey Mouse to cheer them up.

Rochelle added: "Beautiful children, beautiful family. It's so lovely to see that you're so positive after your diagnosis."

As she wiped her tears from her face, she said: That's got me! Don't let a child cry in front of me ever!

"We hope you enjoy it, thank you so much for coming in today."

Talking to Darrell's daughter, she added: "Gosh, you're naughty! You've set me off now, we were friends before this!"

The host wasn't the only person who got emotional.

One viewer tweeted: "#ThisMorning ahhh how lovely. I'm crying now too."

A second said: "Brilliant #ThisMorning I'm in bits now."

A third added: "my heart is so warm#ThisMorning."
