The young child, who was joined by her mother Lilia, impressed the two presenters with a moving performance of the famous Disney song in three different languages. 

Approaching the end of the chorus, she seemed to forget the last line. Susanna prompted her, quietly singing: "The cold never bothered me anyway," before giving her a round of applause.

In a heartwarming moment, Amelia curled up into Susanna and placed her head into the crook of her neck as the presenter said: "You're a superstar. It's so good to see you again."

Viewers took to Twitter to comment on the moving segment, with one person writing: "How very touching to see Amelia from Ukraine sing Frozen in three languages this morning #GMB #notadryeyeinthehouse. I promise we will never forget," while another tweeted: "Not me crying before 8am at a little Ukrainian girl singing Let It Go on #GMB. Too early for this."

A third person shared a photo of Amelia on Susanna's lap alongside the caption: "#GMB @susannareid100. This picture melts my heart, such a beautiful, natural picture."

The GMB host first interviewed the little girl back in April when she travelled to the Polish-Ukrainian border for a special edition of the ITV show and was praised for her coverage of the Russia-Ukraine war.
