GOGGLEBOX viewers were in tears hearing the story of a young boy battling bone cancer.
Familiar Gogglebox faces and some A-list stars were overcome with emotion as 11-year-old Liam got the shocking news his bone cancer had returned.
Stars such as Michael Sheen, Graham Norton, Michelle Visage and Matt Lucas watched in horror as the young lad told his story of battling gruelling bon cancer.
“My mum’s the best person, she’s the best mum,” Liam declared at the start of the clip, and viewers were about to learn why.
During Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer special, Liam and his mum told their harrowing story of finding a lump in his knee and at first thinking nothing of it.
“Why would you?” agreed RuPaul’s Drag Race star, Michelle Visage.
His mum took him to hospital only to receive the devastating diagnosis of bone cancer.
“There’s no words to describe how it feels to be told your child’s got cancer,” she said.

“Your whole world just crumbles.”
Viewers were shocked as they watched footage of Liam going into surgery to remove the tumour from his knee, which had grown and the cancer had spread.
Liam was then suffered very serious side effects from the chemotherapy and even went 10 days without eating or drinking.
Despite not being able to play football and do the same activities as his mates, Liam remains active with his family.
His mum explained how his cancer could come back at anytime and if they could go five years without relapsing, it gives him a much greater chance.
“Hopefully he goes on to live a full, happy life and it never comes back,” she said.
The heart-wrenching clip ending with a shocking note that Liam’s cancer returned in June this year.
“His future remains uncertain,” it read.
That moment floored viewers who were in tears at his story.
“Wow Liam’s story during Gogglebox hit hard #StandUpToCancer hope and pray for him going forward,” wrote one person on Twitter.
Another added: “Liam’s story heartbreaking. Really interesting to hear the impact of cancer on families by including Liam in the Gogglebox section.”
A third commented: “I have followed my name is Liam’s story for ages no kid should go through all he has and so heartbreaking his cancer has returned.”
And a fourth wrote: “I’m bursting in tears, sending lots of love to liam and his family.”
