This Morning Fans Reduced To Tears Over Man Who Applies His Wife's Make-Up

This Morning Fans Reduced To Tears Over Man Who Applies His Wife's Make-Up

This Morning fans were wiping away tears after Des and Mona Manahan proved that true love does still exist...

The elderly couple were appearing on the ITV chat show, as their adorable story went viral earlier this month.

After Des' wife, Mona's, eyesight began to deteriorate and she could no longer apply her make-up as well as she would have liked to, the couple headed to Debenhams for Mona to get it done professionally.

Eighty-three-year-old Des then began to learn how to apply Mona's make-up for her, after the MUA handed him all of the brushes and products.

While show host Ruth Langsford admitted that she wouldn't trust her hubby and co-presenter Eamonn Holmes anywhere near her make-up bag, 82-year-old Mona gushingly told that she had full faith in Des.

Des was overcome with emotion while discussing their marriage, sharing a few tears on the show.

Their sweet appearance also had viewers at home in puddles of tears, with This Morning fans all rushing to Twitter to gush over the touching moments between the couple, who have been married for 52 years.

"My heart is breaking at the elderly man on This Morning learning to do his wife's make-up so he can do it once she's fully blind," tweeted one moved viewer.

And another viewer announced: "Mona and Des are the sweetest couple! My heart is fuzzy. We all need a man like Des. God love him & protect him at ALL costs #ThisMorning."

"Awww this old couple on This Morning are amazing, what a wonderful husband he is to do that for he's wife, you can see he absolutely loves her #ThisMorning," gushed a third person watching at home.

While a final declared: "Omg what an emotional piece I genuinely wasn't prepared for that #couplegoals #thismorning."

Everyone deserves a man like Des in their life.
