Terrence had appeared on the show yesterday explaining how he has spent the last 20 Christmas Days alone.
This year, he is set to spend it with his friend Nancy who he met through Age UK, but such was the emotion of the interview Dan and the Breakfast team decided to go the extra mile.
In today’s show, he visited Terrence at his home in Oldham where the elderly man revealed how he would have loved a Christmas tree this year.
Right on cue, Dan went to his door and let in students from Oldham College who had brought with them decorations and a tree for the man himself.
“We brought you a Christmas tree to brighten your Christmas,” one of the volunteers said.
Terrence became overwhelmed by the act and fought back tears, but the team weren’t finished there.
Dan then asked Terrence what his favourite carol was, to which he replied: “Silent Night.”
He was then taken to his doorstep where Oldham College Choir choir was standing ready and waiting to sing the song.
As the choir sang, the pensioner wiped tears from his eyes and he wasn’t the only one.
Viewers flocked to Twitter after the moment was aired this morning, saying how much they’d been affected by the story.
“Oh Dan…I’m in tears here,” one wrote. “The sad thing is that there are so many, too many people in the same situation as Terrence.”
Another added: “Well, this just made my week…Merry Christmas Terrence & to all the wonderful people Oldham College.”
And a third said: “I’m going to have to carry on watching this later with the sound on – I’m in bits on the train to work. Bless Terrence and Merry Christmas.”
It wasn’t just members of the public who were moved by the story.
John Barrowman – who appeared on BBC Breakfast after the moment was aired – said he would be giving Terrence the chance to come to his show tonight in Sheffield for free.
