The stars of GOGGLEBOX were in tears during this evening’s show when they saw a heartbreaking clip from the BBC series Ambulance.
The TV favorite turned emotional when a compassionate ambulance worker broke Covid rules to comfort a woman after her partner died at home.
Jenny and Lee, Izzy Warner, and Pete Sandiford were among the telly addicts to break up – Julie Malone praised NHS worker Nutan as saying “one of the worst days in that woman’s life being there and saying the right things” make it easy.”
The disturbing scenes began with Emma’s 999 call after her 49-year-old husband, Simon, was “cold” and unable to breathe.
Nutan and the rest of the ambulance staff came to the house and tried tirelessly to restart Simon’s heart, but to no avail.
Finally, Nutan said to Emma: “If you want to be with him, you can come and sit next to him.”
After Simon passed, she offered to make her grieving partner a sweet cup of tea, with Emma crying out: “I wish I could hug you, I needed a hug.”
Dressed in full PPE, the caregiver Nutan pulled him up to a giant bear hug, and told him: “I’m never asking for a hug.”
As Emma’s shoulders trembled while crying in Nutan’s arms, the gogglebox audience reacted to the heart-wrenching visuals.
Pete had tears in his eyes as he talked about his wife, Paige, whom he had secretly married to sister Sophie this summer.
Clearly overwhelmed with emotion, he said: “I’m scared to think about how Emma would feel, I can only compare it to something that happened to Peggy and I didn’t even dare to think about it. “
Sobbing, Jenny said to Pal Lee: “I won’t let her go, will I? I’m shaking her about this: ‘You get off that burning floor!'”
He eased one of the worst days of that woman’s life by being there and saying the right things.
And Dave said to wife Shirley: “Christ, he’s going above and beyond, isn’t he?”
Gogglebox fans at home were just in the scenes, and took to Twitter to share their reaction.
One wrote: “I am crying again over this horrible death on the ambulance and Nutan is the best”.
Another wrote: “Wow how hard is this hour… all ambulance workers are heroes because you have to be strong to go through such situations, probably every single day somewhere..incredible people.”
