Ruby, 7, was reunited with her mum Lisa this weekend after seven weeks apart thanks to a lot of PPE and some neighbours to give them a hand.
The pair appeared on the morning news programme to talk about their reunion, which was filmed by those nearby and saw Lisa scoop up her daughter after nearly two months apart.
But everyone was then left in tears as singer Calum Scott surprised them during their interview to play his hit song, You Are The Reason, which played over the video.
Lisa is currently working on the front line as a care worker for the NHS, and decided to leave Ruby with her dad Paul.

Heartbroken Lisa was seen giving a heart sign to her daughter through the cameras, with Ruby then sending her one back.
Ben Shepherd and Charlotte Hawkins were heard blubbering as he performed the ballad, which talks of someone overcoming obstacles to be with the one they love.
Talking about the tough decision, Lisa said: ‘Like me, there are thousands of other care workers out there who have had to make that decision to separate from their children and partners and loved ones.’
‘It is really really hard,’ she continued. ‘But if we didn’t carry on caring for people, then who would? And when you’re caring for vulnerable people, you have a duty of care to continue.’

Viewers were heartbroken for the family, who wished them well so they were reunited soon.
