COUNTRYFILE viewers were left in floods of tears during an emotional episode that left them "destroyed".
The BBC One show's latest episode focused on its Ramble for Children in Need, and saw various presenters meet members of the public who have been helped by the annual fundraising event.
As viewers tuned into the usually relaxed programme they were stunned to see the hard-hitting stories told.
It was Margherita's last story in Scotland that had viewers in tears, as she met with a 13-year-old girl and her brother who explained how Children in Need helped them as they grieved the tragic death of their friend who took his own life.
Viewers were devastated by this story and took to Twitter to share their reactions.
One viewer wrote: " Don't usually watch #Countryfile highlighting teenage suicide and teenagers voicing it #Rambleforbbc #Childreninneed really powerful, my heart goes out to the parents who were interviewed."
