It was broadcaster Pip's last day on the ITV news programme after working there for almost a decade.

Panning the cameras on Pip, Kate said: "I'm excited for you and your new ventures but you are going to be a huge loss to us on the team here and for me personally as well."

Ben added: "Thanks for being such a lovely part of the show as well."

A tearful Pip replied: "It's been an absolute joy and what you see at home is really what it's like, it's a great family and everyone is just amazing to work with."

To lift the mood, Ben shared: "Are we working in the same place?"

Pip joked: "I've got a load of cash the boss just gave me in my back pocket for saying that!"
