Rochelle Humes was in tears during Wednesday’s episode of This Morning which featured a heart-rending appearance from Harry Mills, nine.
Harry, known as Hazza, was on the ITV show to talk about his fundraising campaign for Young Lives vs Cancer after recently being diagnosed with a rare bone cancer.
The school boy is currently going through an intense course of chemotherapy and is scheduled to have an operation next week, and as his dad Andy explained he was most worried about losing his hair during treatment.
As a mark of solidarity Harry’s close friends have shaved their heads to match their pal, telling This Morning: ‘We wanted to do it so Harry wouldn’t be alone’.
Mum of three Rochelle was in tears as Harry’s friends joined him in the studio, telling the boys: ‘Oh my gosh you’re giving me happy tears’.

Crying, Rochelle told them: ‘Sorry it is just a beautiful story about good friends and we can learn so much from it’.
Viewers watching at home were also emotional with one posting on X, formerly known as Twitter:
”He will never be alone’ Right whoever is cutting onions better stop right now’.
‘Harry and his friends got me all emotional here,’ agreed another, while another wrote that ‘tears are flowing.’
Harry and his friends have raised over £30,000 in donations, well over their original £10,000 target.
His dad explains on the fundraising page he set up how his son ‘faces an intense chemotherapy journey and will undergo an operation to remove a tumor on his femur.’
Harry told This Morning of his diagnosis: ‘It was really scary. I didn’t know what I was going through or what was going on.’
‘I just felt really nervous and scared every time I went into a room that wasn’t a giant X-Ray.’

Rochelle and co-presenter Craig Doyle told the boys they were adding to the fundraising total, with Craig asking his co-star ‘What do you think £500 a shaved head?’
Rochelle, wiping away tears, confirmed ‘why not’ and said they were donating £2,500.
