Martin Lewis fights tears on GMB as hes thrown by Ukrainian child refugee

Martin Lewis was left fighting back tears during his latest stint on Good Morning Britain after sharing an update on the young girl who went viral singing in a Ukraine bunker.

The Money Saving Expert joined Susanna Reid on Monday’s instalment of the show when viewers were given an update on Amelia, who captured everyone's hearts earlier this month when a clip of her singing while seeking refuge in a bomb shelter was shared online.

Amelia Anisovych, seven, who was filmed singing Let It Go from Disney’s Frozen, went viral, with the clip being viewed more than 16.8million times since it was first posted on Facebook on March 3.

The youngster, who was trying lift the spirits of her fellow refuges in a Kyiv bomb shelter, is now in Poland with her grandmother and siblings after fleeing her homeland as Russia’s brutal invasion continues.

Viewers were told that Amelia had bravely sang the Ukrainian national anthem Sunday night at a charity concert in Poland raising hundreds of thousands of pounds in aid.

"Now you will remember that two weeks ago seven-year-old Amelia was singing that iconic song from Frozen in a bunker sheltering from the bombardment in Kyiv," Susanna, 52, said on GMB as the original clip played out on-screen.

"Last night little Amelia, who is now in safety in Poland, sang the Ukrainian national anthem as she opened a major charity concert for her country," the host added as a snipped off her the girl's performance was played to viewers.

As Martin attempted to introduce the clip, the 49-year-old paused ended his intro, appearing to be overcome with emotion.

After apologising with a slight croak to his voice, Martin said: "The real hero has paid for hotel accommodation… sorry. I was so lost by the little girl. I remember going through a period where my little girl was singing Let it Go and she wasn't doing it in a bunker.”

He continued: "I was quite moved. I just got distracted for a moment."

Susanna sympathised: "It throws you doesn't it?" to which Martin agreed: "It does."

The video even reached two stars of Frozen, Idina Mendal and Josh Gad, who each sent tweets of support to Amelia.

"We see you. We really, really see you," Mendel, the voice of Elsa in the movie, wrote on Twitter, alongside two hearts in the colours of the Ukrainian flag.

Gad, who voices Olaf in Frozen, wrote on Twitter in part, "I want to hug and protect this and every other child in danger right now and I feel helpless."
