Have you found yourself in tears watching the telly over the last while? I didn’t watch the Toy Show last Friday, but judging by the WhatsApp messages from friends they were in floods of tears for big chunks of the show. I have found myself crying at the Repair Shop, at the final of GBBO and on Saturday as Hrvy got emotional when chatting to his family on Strictly. As my wife will affirm, I’m not usually a man to cry much.

So what is going on that all this emotion is bubbling to the surface?
