Matty McLean cries over The Lion King on national TV and he couldn't be more adorable

He's not going to live this down!

We all feel so much better about crying at kids movies now that we've seen this footage...

On Monday morning's Breakfast show Matty McLean and the gang were talking about what a great stress reliever crying can be - and then Matty literally broke down when he started talking about the part in The Lion King when Mufasa dies.

It's not like you can edit embarrassing parts out with live TV so we got to see the whole building of emotions unfold...

Then he lost it altogether when Dan Faitaua teased out the details of the sad scene, talking about Simba's belief growing up that he had been responsible, and his parent-less upbringing.

Watch the priceless moments above.
