Andrew Neil had an emotional moment during an appearance on Wednesday’s This Morning when he thanked hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby for their kindness to him.
Andrew, a regular this morning, appeared on the show to discuss the day’s headlines, including whether or not the Covid restrictions can be lifted on June 21 as originally planned.
At the end of the segment, however, he took the opportunity to convey a personal message to Holly and Phil, during which he had a tearful moment.
“Listen,” he began and turned to the moderators. “I wanted to come in today and say thank you.”

Phil replied, “That’s nice! Many Thanks. What are we thanked for? “
An audibly choked Andrew continued, “For being so nice. Wonderful!”
Both presenters were visibly surprised by Andrew’s emotional response, and Phil told him, “That’s a nice thing, thank you very much.”
“That’s very nice,” agreed Holly, and the couple then wished him all the best on GB News, which debuts Sunday.
“Oooh, you are soft sometimes, you really are,” Holly added.
