Emotional viewers were left in tears as they watched a little boy help a girl with Down's syndrome overcome her fear of rabbits in a heart-warming episode of The Secret Life Of 4-Year-Olds.Fans tweeted that they were 'bawling their eyes out' after Tomas helped his 'best friend' Ada find the courage to stroke a pet rabbit, after she initially ran away scared.
Each year on the Channel 4 show, ten four-year-olds gather at a school — this time in Epping, Essex — during the summer holidays, supervised by a couple of firm but kindly teachers and 30 multi-directional cameras dotted throughout the classroom and the playground.
Also among this year's cast are cheeky scamp Vinnie, self-proclaimed 'top geezer' Harper, adorable redhead Patsy and dinosaur fanatic Noah.
All of the children featured in the Channel 4 show are stars in their own right but Ada quickly won over viewers with her big personality.
Asked whether she's a good girl or a naughty girl she replied 'naughty girl' with the cheekiest of grins and a twinkle in her eye.
Parents Matt Dixon, 37, and Laura, 38, who live with Ada and six-year-old daughter Sophie, previously told how they decided to apply for the show as a way of raising awareness of what it means to be a young child with Down's syndrome - but also because they thought it would suit their daughter's big personality.
