The show was being presented by Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, and one guest was Sophie, 9, who was on the show to fulfil her bucket list of dream activities.
Eamonn said: “Sophie’s not well, she’s been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, it is so hard for everybody because it’s incurable.
“But she’s come up with this list and you guys have decided to see it through.”
Ruth offered the girl a Cinderella tiara, before Holly appeared via video link.
She said to Sophie: “Oh Sophie it’s so, so lovely to meet you!
“I’m so sorry I can’t be there, but when I heard you were coming on the show, I was like ‘Right, I want to be there, I want to see her’.
“And I wish I could but I’m sending you a big virtual cuddle through the screen.”
Holly added: “I was thinking, ‘What was my favourite outfit from This Morning?’, and it had to be my Cinderella dress and the best bit about that Cinderella dress was that tiara!

“So that’s my favourite thing! And you’re a lucky girl because I asked if I could take that tiara home for my daughter and they said no!”
Sophie was overjoyed to have met Holly. Her parents added that next, she wanted to meet Gordon Ramsay.
Sophie said: “I like his cooking and I just like him as a person. He was nice, he did swear once!”
One fan wrote on Twitter: “Beautiful brave strong little warrior Sophie, lovely mum and dad. Puts life into perspective. Moan about silly little things that’s irrelevant.”
