Phillip Schofield, 57, and his co-host Holly Willoughby, 39, were back in the studio to oversee proceedings on the show today, with roving reporter Alison Hammond, 45, at a secret location to host a money prize game. After the surprised guest accumulated a sum of money to put towards their upcoming wedding, the This Morning presenters were so touched by her story they decided to help give her the day of her dreams. Watching the moment unfold at home, viewers were left crying at the host's generosity.
After teasing the secret location at the start of the show, Alison eventually arrived on the doorstep of bride-to-be Melissa, who had mobility issues due to sustaining an injury in an unfortunate accident.
Playing the latest edition of Dosh on your Doorstep, the guest managed to answer several questions correctly and won a grand total of £1,000.
Overjoyed at seeing how much the money meant to the player, the hosts decided they would help bump up the total a little further.
With his colleague sat alongside the competition winner, Phillip announced he and Holly would be adding an additional £1,000 to the jackpot, an offer which left viewers in tears.

Watching the moment Melissa won the money unfold, Holly commented: “She didn’t need our help at all.”
Alison reiterated the guest didn’t need any help, to which Phillip interjected as he said: “We love her so much and we don’t do this very often.”
Explaining the terms of his offer, the host continued: “Because she’s such an amazing winner and because she’s had such a rough time, Holly and I, we’re going to add another thousand pound to her winnings.”
The competition winner was ecstatic at the news, with the presenters telling her it was a “little wedding gift” for her.
