GMB viewers floored as 'inspirational' amputee Harmonie-Rose returns to show off gymnastic skills

She lost her limbs to meningitis when she was 10 months old

Fans of Good Morning Britain had their hearts thoroughly warmed this morning (June 11) as Harmonie-Rose, who lost all her limbs to meningitis, returned to the show.

The five-year-old featured on the programme earlier this year, when she presented the weather and talked about raising money for charity by doing a half-marathon.

On GMB this morning, Harmonie-Rose wanted to demonstrate the gymnastics skills she's picked up with the help of coach Fran, who was on the show with her.

Co-presenter Piers Morgan said: "She's the gutsiest little five year old you'll ever meet. She's now decided to take on gymnastics. There's no stopping you, is there?"

Harmonie-Rose told them she was going to do a backwards role and a cartwheel, and Piers, amazed, admitted: "I can't do those! And I'm 54 years old. I've never been able to do those."

The youngster then took to the mats and equipment set up in the studio and pulled off a perfect backwards role, followed by a cartwheel.
