There wasn’t a dry eye in the house on Monday morning when Lorraine Kelly hosted an emotional reunion between two stars of Long Lost Family.
A mother and daughter who had been apart for 50 years finally found one another thanks to Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell of Long Lost Family, with their episode airing on Monday evening.
Daughter Lisa Phillips was adopted five decades ago and grew up wondering who her birth mother could be.
Thankfully, the researchers at ITV tracked her biological mother, Susan Atkins, down, with their pair enjoying a tearful reunion before the cameras.
Lisa grew teary-eyed again on Monday morning as she watched the footage back, expressing the love she feels for her long-lost mum.
A young single mum at the time, Susan had given Lisa up for adoption because she believed she couldn’t give her the life she wanted for her daughter.
Lisa grew up with doting adoptive parents, Sonia and Gerald Clark, who told her she was adopted when she turned seven.
Though the 51-year-old enjoyed a happy upbringing, when her wedding day came around in 1992, she realised she wanted to connect with her birth mother.
Almost three decades later, and Lisa and Susan have finally reunited, inviting one another into their lives and getting to know their extended families.
The mother and daughter expressed their love for one another on the show, leaving host Lorraine feeling emotional.
Rob Rinder, who was the next guest on the show, similarly had his heartstrings tugged, as he exclaimed: "I’m so moved by that last piece!”
