Loose Women's Gloria Hunniford breaks down watching emotional family video

Gloria Hunniford broke down watching footage of her daughter Caron who passed away from cancer.

During today's show, the panel took time to remember Gloria Hunniford 's daughter, Caron Keatting. The presenter and personality would've celebrated her 60th birthday today but passed away after a battle with breast cancer in 2004.

Shortly after her death, Gloria founded the Caron Keating Foundation which helps cancer charities across the UK raise funds for treatment. During today's show, she said the charity is dear to her heart and helps her get past "dark times" as she sees it as a "beacon of light."

As the clip ended, the panel returned with Gloria weeping and drying her tears with a tissue. She said: "I find it very emotional when I see lots of clips of her moving, living and laughing.

"She loved life and there'll be 15 of us tonight celebrating around a table, but Caron would be the one up and dancing on the table."

She added: "I remember reading something that has always stayed with me. It said 'There will be days you want to sit and weep but you have to remember if you weep until the day you die you'll cry all you're life but you'll never get her back'. I swallowed when I read that because it's so true."
