GOOD Morning Britain's Richard Arnold broke down in tears as he revealed his heartbreaking childhood struggle.

The entertainment reporter described his night as Abba Voyage as the 'best night of his life' after it healed his childhood wounds.

Richard, 52, came over all emotional as he relived his childhood struggle while talking to Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway about his night at Abba Voyage, the legendary band's virtual concert.

Richard said: "It was the best night of my life."

"To find himself not only seeing Abba, reform for the want of a better word, to be sat in the same row as ABBA, it was absolutely extraordinary. It was amazing."
