Good Morning Britain fans in tears as they see war veteran Ken Benbow, 94, cry over his ‘wonderful life’ and carers

The pair appeared on the ITV breakfast show on on VE Day to discuss his life with Ben Shephard and Charlotte Hawkins.

Ken, who joined the navy aged 17 to fight in the war, had gone viral in a sweet video clip of his care home worker Kia gifting him a pillow with his wife’s picture on it.

And Piers watched GMB from home as he prepared to return to work on Monday following his negative coronavirus test.

He shared the clip from GMB and captioned it with the crying emoji.

Dozens of viewers also tweeted in and one said: “Ken Benbow you made me cry such a lovely man 😢 I salute you !! Thankyou”

The wonderful Ken Benbow interview was so moving. What a true hero and inspiration, who like his fellow comrades deserves so many thanks, and a lot of respect from us all, but especially today…

As one more said: “Ohh ken & Kia such a lovely story so glad he’s happy in his home 😪 #Gmb”

Ken told the presenters: “I must thank the lord for my life. I’ve had a marvellous life, I had the most wonderful wife in the world. I have the most wonderful carer in Kia. But they’re all here, our angels. I couldn’t wish to be in a better place.”

Charlotte asked Ken how he’ll me marking VE Day and what he thinks of Kia, dressed in an army uniform.

Ken wept as he answered Charlotte in heartbreaking scenes.

Ken and Aida were married for 71 years

He said through tears: “I think she looks beautiful, she is lovely in every way. And so is everyone in the home. They couldn’t do more for you. You couldn’t wish to be in a better home anywhere.”

Kia, who is 17-years-old, bought Ken a pillow with a picture of his wife Aida on it when they appeared on GMB last month.

She said she was worried about him sleeping with a glass framed photo of Aida.

Sharing her reaction to Ken’s sweet response to the gift, Aida said: “How can you describe that?
