Chris Evans ' co-host was overcome with emotion reading a heart-breaking Mother's Day tribute.
Vassos Alexander broke down in tears when he read the letter penned by four-year-old Ella Lennon, who had written the card for her mum Jennifer, who had passed away in December reportedly due to a brain tumour.
Ella posted the card and was 'so happy' to receive a touching response from a staff member at the Royal Mail, who kindly took time to reply to the youngster as her mother.
Vassos issued a 'mascara warning' before he began to read the heartbreaking letter which he had to pause several times to collect himself, before finishing.
The Virgin Radio sport reporter admitted he knew he would cry: “I’ll break down in the second or third paragraph."
A tearful Vassos read the Despicable Me-themed card which read “you’re one in a minion, Mum".
Two days later Ella received a reply: “To my beautiful Ella, thank you so much for my very special Mother’s Day card.
“You’re one in a Minion to me. I love you so much. You're growing up to be a very special and clever big girl,” a choked up Vassos read.
"And even though I am in heaven I watch over you every day. Lots of love, hugs and kisses, Mummy."
Vassos added that the return address on the envelope of the letter read: “1 Angel Gate, In The Clouds, Heaven”.
Ella's dad Dean shared the story on social media thanking the "kind-hearted" postal worker who had replied to his daughter.
There wasn't a dry eye in the studio as Vassos finished the reading, adding "you won't read a more heartwarming story this year".
