Last night's DIY SOS certainly pulled at the heartstrings as the community came together to transform the home of stroke survivor Richard Ford.
BBC One aired the episode featuring the Holmbridge family last night — and many viewers were moved to tears by the show.
The programme was even praised by football and TV star Gary Lineker, who tweeted: "There are a lot of really good folk in this country. #DIYSOS"
What you said on Facebook:
Martina Daley: " It was so heartwarming to see so many good hearted people out there willing to give up their time for a good cause. Plus the family have had a tough time but they're so strong and such an inspiration."
Nichola Mear: "I watched it, was crying, they so deserved it and all the top people who helped out, hope they enjoy their home now as a family."
Samantha Midgeley: "My old boss was on it. It was a tear jerker."
Former policeman Richard Ford, 44, of Holmbridge, was left partially paralysed by a devastating brain stem stroke in 2012.
Richard, father to three young boys, was left with locked-in syndrome for nine months but his determination not to let his family down saw him fight back to health.
When he was eventually released from hospital, wife Jude, 44, converted the children’s playroom into a bedroom for Richard.
The family was struggling for space until BBC TV makeover show DIY SOS stepped in to help.
A team of builders, joiners, plasterers and electricians descended in February to completely transform the family’s home.
The stunning results were revealed in last night's show.
