HOLLY Willoughby fought back tears as a This Morning caller broke down over the death of her 14-year-old grandson.
Ann rang into the show's pet bereavement phone-in about the death of her dog – but ended up revealing her devastating family tragedy.
She said: "On November my grandson took poorly, very ill. He died on my dog's birthday on the 10th of November."
Shocked Holly cried out: "That is just so awful."
Ann continued: "I am so overwhelmed with grief. I was grieving for my dog, we were never apart. I sit here and cuddle her coat and toys. I can't bear to put anything away…Then my grandson died on her birthday."
After Holly's co-host Phillip Schofield suggested Ann think about getting a new dog.
But she broke down in tears as she admitted she's got a new puppy arriving next week. Ann cried: "I feel guilty for another dog in my house when I'm still grieving."
Reassuring her, Holly told Ann: "You don't have a certain amount of love, that's the thing – love just grows.
"If you're worried you won't love that dog the same, that's just impossible.
"You will be amazed, your heart just grows a bit more."
