RUTH Langsford broke down in tears during a moving chat with the NHS nurse who reunited with her kids in a viral video.

In a video that quickly went viral on Twitter, she is seen sneaking up behind her children, who had been staying with her sister Charlotte.

Ruth couldn't fight back her tears as she watched the sweet moment again before Suzie joined them on This Morning today.

The star insisted they were "happy tears" as she welcomed Suzie, her daughters and the family dog to the show, as well as Charlotte who was in a separate video link.

Explaining that she has been a nurse for 22 years, the bighearted carer said that isolating from her family allowed her to put in 50 hours a week at hospital.


She said: "My decision was a really hard decision, we thought it was for the best because I was worried of what I would be bringing home as I would be working in ICU with COVID patients.

"I could also put a lot of hours in at work, I was doing nearly 50 hours a week and I wouldn't have been able to do that with the girls.

"I needed peace of mind that my girls were safe so I could get on with my job of helping."

Eamonn and Ruth heaped praise on the generous gesture.

 

Suzie had to spend her birthday apart from her daughters, instead working a 12-hour shift as an operating department practitioner in an intensive care unit.

She previously said: "Now they won't let me out of their sight. When I put them to bed they said, 'Am I dreaming mummy?'

"I do hope it doesn't have a knock-on effect on them, but kids are quite resilient.

"It was a hard decision to make. I just had to think to myself it was to keep them safe and I was so worried in case I was bringing something back."
