Phillip Schofield broke down on This Morning as the mother of Megan Evans, 14, revealed the final message she received before committing suicide.
Nicola Evans said: “The last messages was ‘Why don’t you hang yourself?’
“And Megan replied, ‘OK, I will.”
Holly Willoughby couldn’t speak as she was told while Schofield choked up and became teary as he said: “It’s got all of us.”

Following Megan’s death, Nicola began a social media campaign to get Justin Bieber to donate an item of memorabilia ahead of her funeral.
The day before the service, tears were shed as a signed photo with Megan’s name and a heart drawn on it arrived.
“I never thought I would ever cry tears of happiness again – but I was wrong. Our beautiful, beautiful Megan will be looking down on us now, smiling from ear to ear, as her dream has come true.”
Megan’s funeral took place today at a church in her hometown. She will be cremated later today.
Nicola said her daughter was a ‘bright, vivacious, hugely popular, sporty, confident, outgoing, fiercely independent and normal’ teenager.
Megan’s friends and siblings hadn’t noticed anything was wrong before she committed suicide and police are not treating her suicide as suspicious in any way.
A truly tragic story.
