DIY SOS FANS were left in tears tonight as three orphaned boys are given their “dream home”.
Earlier in the episode the brothers had revealed their heartbreak at losing their beloved mum.
Their story started with their grandparents, who took them in when their mother Carrie sadly passed away.
Depois de 15 years of fostering 103 crianças, Stephen and Lynn Smedley were looking forward to their well-earned retirement together in Carbis Bay, Cornualha.
Contudo, em abril 2017, their dream dramatically changed, when Carrie, their beloved 32-year-old daughter died.
Single mum Carrie, who was mother to Ruben, 17, Jaden, 11, and Uche, 10, was found by her youngest son, who was too young to understand what had happened

While the younger boys could not comprehend what had happened, eldest brother Ruben realised their mum had died and protected his little siblings by taking them to a family relative.
“They got their big brother Ruben, he came upstairs and realised what had happened. For those two little boys to have had to found their mum like that,” said Lynn.
“Ruben, quem era 13 no momento, went straight to my mum’s who lives not even five minutes away.

“They’re never going to forget not being able to wake her up and Reuben will never forget not being able to save her. I knew I had to do something for these boys. They’re my priority now”
Since their mum’s death, life has been very tough for Carrie’s three sons.
They are grieving their mother’s untimely death while sharing a small 10x12ft bedroom with a triple bunk bed.
There is only one bathroom, and grandma Lynn has been forced to do the washing and ironing in the wooden shed due to lack of space.
Their grandfather Stephen cares for the boys while Lynn works as a healthcare assistant.
But tonight the DIY SOS team came to the rescue and renovated the bungle to include bedrooms for all the boys, another bathroom and a HUGE kitchen and living room.
The brothers were overcome when they were shown their new house, calling it their “dream home”.
Their sweet reaction was all too much for the viewers, who ended up in tears.
Um fã disse: “I’m not crying you’re crying! so touching!
While another tweeted: “Wow #DIYSOS has brought me to years, more times than any other program. Always tears of joy as they are an amazing team. What a beautiful family and community tonight.”
Eu obviamente pensei sobre isso, mas eu tinha um trabalho a fazer.”
It was all too much for this viewer: “I’m in bits! What a heartwarming story, and such lovely boys! They deserve that lovely house. I hope it will bring them some comfort after losing their mum.”
DIY SOS continues next Monday at 9pm on BBC One
