- Viewers branded moment ‘heartwarming’ and praised him for showing emotion
Viewers branded the moment judge Keith Brymer Jones broke down in tears as ‘heartwarming’ after he burst into tears at the beauty of a cup and toast rack in The Great Pottery Throw Down.
In last night’s episode of the Channel 4 show, the judges set the potters two challenges – to create a breakfast set comprised of a cafetiere, two espresso cups and matching saucers and a toast rack, and egg cups.
And the task seemed to be a bit overwhelming – not for the 12 contestants, but for judge Keith – who was overcome with emotion when he was presented with Rosalind’s hen-inspired pieces.
‘Just when I thought the world was void of kindness, seeing Keith crying over the quality of Rosalind’s hens might have helped restore a glimmer,’ wrote one, while a second enthused: ‘I’ve never seen such emotion judging a toast rack. This is epic viewing and my new series to get hooked on.’

One viewers took to Twitter and wrote: ‘Can’t quite describe the joy I get from the judge crying at pottery. It’s just so heartwarming (pictured)
A third added: ‘Keith Brymer Jones bursting into floods of tears at the drop of a hat is the joy I didn’t know was missing from my life.’
Meanwhile, a fourth made a comparison to judge Paul Hollywood on The Great British Bake Off and wrote: ‘A “Keith cry” is the new “Hollywood Handshake.”
As the episode kicked off, Keith explained: ‘Functionality is a large part of what I do but over the 35 years I’ve been doing it, it’s not just about function – it’s about the emotional connection you’re trying to convey with what you make. For me, pottery is incredibly emotional.’
And that quickly became apparent when he burst into tears at Rosalind’s breakfast set.

Speaking of Rosalind’s breakfast set, Keith commented: ‘It’s fantastic, mate! It’s not my cup of tea…or coffee, but the execution of your illustration of your hen is fantastic. It’s really good.’ Pictured, with new judge Sue

One viewer wrote: ‘It’s just a teapot and some cups Keith! What’s he going to be like in the final?’ (pictured)
‘Happy with Henrietta?’ asked new judge and award-winning ceramicist Sue Pryke, to which Rosalind replied: ‘Yes, it seems to have all worked out.’
‘Well, I entirely agree with you,’ added an emotional Keith, who struggled to get his words out. ‘It’s fantastic, mate! It’s not my cup of tea…or coffee, but the execution of your illustration of your hen is fantastic. It’s really good. It’s charming!’
Sue continued: ‘What you’ve achieved is a functional set and your style is very country-kitchen isn’t it. There’s certainly a market for this.’
And those who tuned in were quick to take to social media full of praise for the emotional judge.
‘New drinking game idea. Shot every time Keith cries on #GreatPotteryThrowDown – whose in?’ wrote one, while a second commented: ‘It makes me so happy that this is back! I love how emotional Keith is! My favourite moment from the older series when Keith cried over a beautiful clay cone!’
A third added: ‘I always cry when Keith cries, while a fourth penned: ‘Keith the judge seems to be in tears most of the time , good tears. Totes emosh over a coffee pot.’
Keith was inundated with praise on Twitter, with many comparing his crying to Paul Hollywood’s infamous ‘handshake’ on The Great British Bake Off (pictured)
