This Morning viewers were left heartbroken as they listened to a woman tearfully speak about losing her grandson and beloved dog.
Ann called in to the show on Monday to get advice from TV psychologist Emma Kenny.
What happened on This Morning today?
Ann called in to explain she lost her beloved dog in October.
However, not long after, she lost her 14-year-old grandson.
Ann said: “My little dog died very suddenly within a few days of her taking poorly. She died on the 22nd of October.
“She has been my companion, my world, my life, a reason to get up in the morning.
“I wasn’t prepared to lose her, she was only eight years of age. I had already ordered her birthday present for the 10th of November.”
Ann continued: “During the time of my grief, my daughter was here for support. She helped me every day.
“[She] sorted all the arrangements out for my little dog to come home to me.
“And then on the 8th of November, my grandson took poorly and he died on my dog’s birthday on the 10th of November.”
As Ann became choked up, Holly said: “Oh that’s just so awful.”
Ann admitted: “I’m just so overwhelmed with grief. I was grieving for my dog and then my grandson, he died on her birthday.”
My grandson took poorly and he died on my dog’s birthday.
Emma told Ann she will begin to live with her grief over time, however, added that it will “always be there”.
Phil later told viewers the This Morning team were on the phone to Ann to help her.
Viewers were sobbing over Ann’s heartbreaking story.
