"Of course I'm not ok": David Campbell in tears on set

"Of course I'm not ok": David Campbell in tears on set

David Campbell was left in tears after he watched a viral video during Today Extra, on Friday.

The TV host revealed they’d be giving viewers some “Friday feels,” but his co-host couldn’t have been prepared for Campbell’s emotional response.

US toddler Benjamin Olson has not been able to make too many friends during the pandemic, but thankfully his beautiful 99-year-old neighbour Mary was the perfect fit for the tiny tot.

As video of the pair playing rolled, it proved too much for David, who was sporting pajamas for National Pyjama Day.

"Don't," he said.

When cameras panned back to David, he was wiping his eyes.

"That was just so nice and I wasn't ready for it," he said.

His co-host Belinda Russell asked if he was OK.

"No," he responded.
