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”.
