An inspiring football fan, 10, who lost his eyesight and 96% of his skin after a rare illness, brought both These Morning viewers and Holly Willoughby to tears today.
Declan Bitmead appeared today with his mother in the ITV newspaper to talk to Holly and Phil.
The Man United fan was just seven years old when he had a bad reaction to amoxicillin, which he got for tonsillitis.
"We thought he was really tired of playing football and the next day he woke up and he was covered by the rash," his mother revealed.
At first his parents rang 111, but they knew something was very wrong.
"We hung up and had a faint feeling that it was worse than that," she said, explaining that they had called for an ambulance.
Paramedics believed he had chickenpox, but only later was he diagnosed with Stevens-Johnson syndrome. a rare autoimmune disease that breaks down the skin.
Declan later began to vomit blood, and he had to be taken to an intensive care unit.
After that, he lost his eyesight and was blindly registered.
Nevertheless, Declan's love of football has not disappeared.
He is due to appear on Davina McCall's "This Time Next Year" as he learns to play football blindly, blinding everyone and rattling in soccer balls.
After the interview, Declan was thrilled when Phil revealed that they had arranged him as a mascot during an FA Cup match.
Clearly touched, Holly started to cry and Phil had to handkerchiefs.
She dabbed at her eyes and said, "I'm sorry, it was your face when we told you it was so beautiful."
