DIY SOS viewers were in floods of tears tonight after the team transformed one parent’s house into a wheelchair-accessible space for their three disabled children.
We’re not crying, you are.
Cat and Chris Sweet, from Weston Super Mare, live with their three children Louisa, 16, Max, 13 and seven-year-old Harry, who all have life-limiting conditions which are steadily getting worse.
Harry has had Ehlers Danlos syndrome since birth, which can cause him so much pain that he struggles to sleep.
While, in 2017, Louisa and Max were diagnosed with Friedreich’s ataxia, a rare and neurodegenerative condition.
But, it was an emotional moment for the Sweet family and viewers as host Nick Knowles and his team surprised them with their dream home.
The volunteers installed a lift to help the children, the bathroom was made more accessible for wheelchairs, while the kids’ bedrooms were fitted with hoists to help them get in and out of bed.
After the surprise reveal, viewers couldn’t help but admitting to shedding a tear or two while watching the heartbreaking episode.
One viewer said: ‘What an absolutely fantastic job by the #DIYSOS team in WSM this evening. So amazing to see so many people giving up their time so selflessly for others. Emotional wreck.’
Another commented: ‘I usually have tears in my eyes when they do #DIYSOS ..tonight I have rivers flowing down my cheeks. Everyone there is a hero.
While one added: ‘Bawling my eyes out at #DIYSOS tonight.’
DIY SOS airs at 8pm on Thursdays on BBC One.
