Josie Gibson teared up on the latest episode of This Morning as she praised the NHS amid her son's recent health scare.

The presenter, 37, appeared on Monday's show (July 25) alongside Craig Doyle and panellists Gyles Brandreth and Matthew Wright to discuss the NHS crisis.

Sharing her own experience of the public health service, Josie welled up and said: "I just spent the night in hospital and I was just in awe [of] their 12-hour shifts.

"They were so short-staffed in theatre that Reggie's surgeon couldn't have a lunch break."

Josie later explained that her hospital visit followed her son Reggie-James, three, being rushed to hospital after falling off a trampoline ladder and injuring his arm.

She added: "I just think, credit to them.

"How amazing to keep doing your job when you've got all this in a crumbled system.

"We need to fix it for them, it's not fair on them."

Confirming that Reggie had to have "metal wires put in his arm", Josie was also asked by her co-host Craig for an update on Reggie's health.

Josie replied: "He's really, really good and I can't thank everyone in that theatre enough. I would have paid anything."

Reggie was treated at Royal United Hospital Bath.

In an Instagram story over the weekend, Josie shared an image of his arm X-ray alongside the caption: "Reg has a new terminator arm.

"A victim of a trampoline ladder."

Josie and Craig appeared on This Morning in place of Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary, who fronted the show last week before taking a summer break alongside Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.

The duo form part of a number of summer presenters the ITV show has lined up, including Ruth Langsford and Rylan Clark.

This Morning airs from 10am on weekdays on ITV.
