As host of ‘Surprise Surprise’, Holly Willoughby is usually the one delivering emotional moments to unsuspecting members of the public, but on Sunday’s show (21 June), it's her who's in for a shock.

The presenter bursts into tears on a Father’s Day special of the ITV show when her own dad surprises her at work.

Holly has no idea that the treat is in store, and as she turns to the audience to announce the final surprise, she says: "There is still one more Father's Day surprise.
