During today’s (Tuesday, May 26) episode of GMB, Ben and Charlotte chatted with care worker Lisa Cave and her seven-year-old daughter, Ruby, who has asthma.

The pair featured in a video that went viral recently, taken when they were finally reunited after weeks apart.

GMB producers surprised Lisa, Ruby and her dad during the interview by bringing Calum on.

I’m gone here!

And he delighted them with a live rendition of his song, You Are the Reason.

His singing reduced them to tears, and even Ben and Charlotte were crying after his emotive performance.
