This Morning's Cat Deeley broke down in tears on Tuesday's instalment of the show, after a clip of the late rugby star, Rob Burrow, was shown.The 47 year old TV star, who fronts the ITV daytime show alongside Ben Shephard, couldn't contain her emotions as the video saw Rob speaking to his fans in a posthumous BBC documentary, named There's Only One Rob Burrow, which aired on Monday, 3 June.

Rob, who was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in 2019, had recorded a deeply moving final message for his supporters before he passed away on Sunday 2 June, aged 41, encouraging them to "be brave", "live in the moment" and to continue "to dare to dream".

Following Rob's poignant final words: "Rob Burrow, over and out," it cut back to the studio, where Ben took a deep breath and said: "Gosh, such a powerful message and a wonderful smile. "Rob is survived by his wife and children, of course, and his parents. "He recorded that for a documentary about him - There's Only One Rob Burrow - which is available on iPlayer and certainly worth watching." Cat was visibly overcome with emotion and struggled to speak, as her co-host Ben, offered a hand to comfort her, and muttered: "Are you okay?" She laughed nervously and said: "No, I told you I watched it this morning." Her voice wobbled as she tried to deliver her words, saying: "Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things you will ever go through, which is why Dierdre is here to help you manage your grief today." This Morning will be holding a bereavement section at 11.15am on Tuesday, 4 June, with the clip about Rob leading to the segment.
