Viewers were tears last night (October 9) when watching the new Channel 4 series, which sees young kids meeting up with elderly residents of a care home in Nottingham.
In a particularly heartbreaking scene, 4-year-old Scarlett struck up a friendship with 84-year-old Beryl.
Scarlett was tasked with making and writing a card for her parents to invite them to a party, and so Beryl offered to help her.
However, when a care assistant told Scarlett to write down 'to mummy and daddy' in the card, Scarlett said: "No my mum died, so Gran-Gran and daddy."
Beryl was then seen helping Scarlett with her writing, as together they wrote 'to Gran and daddy'.
The heartwarming moments was met with emotional responses by viewers on social media, with one writing: "When Scarlett politely announced that her mummy had died so she couldn't invite her to the party...my heart".
Another posted: "Old people's home for 4 year olds has got me in a complete mess."
This is the second series of Old People's Home for Four-Year-Olds, after last year's Bristol-based series was met with rave reviews.
