When she heard the couple’s story and revealed that This Morning would be donating £1,000 to Scott and Megan’s cause, Rochelle welled up.

Then, in an update later in the show, Vernon said that Megan had taken a turn for the worst and had gone to a specialist hospital.

However, they told Scott that since the earlier interview, This Morning viewers had logged on to his JustGiving page.

He now had a fantastic £140,000 raised.
