RADIO host and TV star Nicky Campbell broke down in tears live on air yesterday while hosting a listener debate about assisted suicide.

The Edinburgh-born broadcaster, who was encouraging listeners to call in following Coronation Street’s controversial right-to-die storyline, which saw long-term character Hayley Cropper pass away, began to cry after taking a call from a mother fighting breast cancer.

The last 30 seconds of the show was anchored by a member of The Samaritans, who read out a helpline number.
