Naga Munchetty struggled to conceal her emotion as BBC Breakfast guest and bereaved daughter Hannah Brady shared her own heartache over the Downing Street party.
The 46-year-old host and co-star Charlie Stayt, 59, listened to Hannah's impactful story about her father Shaun Brady, 55, who had died four days before the "bring your own booze" gathering.
Fans of the show were left "heartbroken" as Hannah explained: "Boris Johnson got five minutes more to socialise at the party, than I got at my Dad's funeral".
On the 20 May 2020 – the date of the party – Hannah said she'd been busy sorting her dad's "death certificate" and also went shopping for "PPE for nurses" who didn't have any.
After the discussion, fans took to Twitter in their masses to praise Hannah for the "powerful" and "moving" interview.
"#BBCBreakfast Hannah Brady’s interview was so eloquent and so moving. Straight from the heart unlike the PM’s feeble words," wrote one person.
Another online user penned: "Touched and amazed at the story and composure of Hannah on #BBCBreakfast this morning.
"She spoke beautifully and couldn’t agree more. Please keep doing what your doing, you will continue to gain support. Thank you."
While a third fumed: "Hannah Brady explaining that her dads funeral was only allowed to be 20minutes long, and yet Johnson got to party for 5more minutes than that is just heartbreaking. How do you fit the love and life of someone into 20 minutes? #BBCBreakfast."
On Wednesday, Boris Johnson issues an apology for attending the drinks gathering in Downing Street's garden – during the first Covid-19 lockdown in 2020.
Boris offered up his "heartfelt apologies" but later went on to add that the gathering was "technically within the rules" but recognises now how the party might look to the public.
