During the Dear Deidre segment of the show, a woman called ‘Isla’ phoned in.
‘Isla’ wanted to apologise to her family for being disabled, as she felt as though they’d been held back because of her.
She phoned in to ask Deidre about how to say sorry.
“I don’t really know where to start. Basically, I was born disabled and I think I need to apologise to my dad and my sister,” ‘Isla’ said.

A shocked Phillip couldn’t believe what he was hearing.
“For them having to put their lives on hold because of me,” ‘Isla’ explained. She then went on to say that her family say they love her, and she believes them, but it’s “difficult” to.
However, Holly and Deidre assured ‘Isla’ that her family did love her and that she had nothing to apologise for.
“You have given your family an amazing opportunity to dig into themselves, to find strength and show their love for you,” Deidre said.
This is a growth experience for everybody, please don’t feel that you have to apologise for the fact that you have a disability in life,” she continued.
‘You’re wonderful. You’re you.”
How did viewers react?
Many viewers headed to Twitter to show their support for her.
“Isla.. my heart breaks for you. Never apologise for being disabled, your family won’t think you’re a bother, they love you,” one viewer said.
“The caller Isla on @thismorning just made me [crying emojis]. So sad. No one should apologise for being themselves. Love who you are. The family needs to support the person,” another said.
“Isla you absolutely do not have to apologise for being disabled. If they make you feel that way then they’re three ones who should be apologising. You’re absolutely perfect the way you are,” a third wrote.
“@thismorning to the young lady Isla who phoned in….. you’re such a beautiful soul, you made me cry with your apology.
“You don’t need to apologise hunni for being who you are, you are unique and so special, people will learn from you and be inspired by you for being you. Much love,” another tweeted.
