Gogglebox star Izzi Warner couldn't hold back the tears on tonight's episode, as she watched a news bulletin about the coronavirus .
The virus was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organisation earlier this week, sending the nation into a panic.
Watching the news from home with her sister Ellie Warner, mum-of-two Izzi started to panic about the outbreak.
Busting into tears, she said: "I can't help the way I feel."
Trying to laugh away her tears, she added: "I'm so stupid cause I'm laughing at myself but I can't help the way I feel."
Gogglebox fans were concerned for her, taking to their keyboards to assure the Channel 4 star they understood how she was feeling.

A second added: "I so relate to Izzi. The media put the fear of God into you about all of this. Not all of us can brush off a pandemic like it's nothing."
And a third added: "It's important that we saw Izzi crying from being anxious about coronavirus. Millions of us are overwhelmed and frightened by what's happening."
