This Morning viewers mock Holly Willoughby as she fights back tears during Harry and Meghan's 'best bits'

Segment was not unlike a reality TV show eviction!

TV's Holly Willoughby became a little emotional today (January 20) as she presented a segment on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's royal departure.

As Holly and her This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield introduced a montage of Harry and Meghan's "best bits", Holly appeared to well up.

Choking back tears, Holly sniffed and declared: "I can't bear it."

Holly admitted she "felt emotional" watching the clips.

Holly added: "You could feel it was a choice they made out of their hands. You felt it was a choice they made to survive a little bit."

When I watched him speaking it actually made me feel quite emotional. I felt it.

However, viewers were left a little perplexed at Holly's emotional reaction to the clips.

Another said: "Why the hell was Holly crying? Can't believe people are upset and even offended by their decisions. I am happy for them and really hope it all works out."

Others, however, said This Morning had likened Harry and Meghan's departure from the royal family to an eviction from a reality TV show by airing their best bits.

Others admitted they were crying too, but their tears were tears of laughter.

Viewers were last week left scratching their heads when Holly came to work dressed in what looked like school uniform.
