GOGGLEBOX fans broke down in tears as they watched an emotional scene of a mother delivering a baby.
They also watched a clip from Channel W’s Emma Willis: Delivering Babies.
During the episode that they were watching, presenter Emma, 44, was assisting a planned cesarean birth.
42-year-old Ololade and Adekunle, 43, were excited to welcome their third child into the world.
After they cut the mum-to-be open, the doctors soon realised that their baby was lying across her uterus, which is seen in less than one per cent of cases.
They started to struggle to get the baby out, but minutes later the baby was born.
However the child was unresponsive.
