Former Blue Peter presenter Konnie Huq burst into tears as she spoke at an event calling for a second Brexit referendum yesterday.
The prominent campaigner admitted she ‘couldn’t believe’ she was crying during a passionate speech at the People’s Vote Rally in Church House, Westminster.
Huq said Brexit will be an “unforgivable betrayal” as she campaigned alongside politicians including Baroness Betty Boothroyd.
A video of the ex-Commons speaker has gone viral on social media as she made an emotional plea to “put it to the people”.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
