Season 5 of Queer Eye landed on Netflix last week, bringing with it a whole lot of tear-jerking moments and feel good vibes.

Now, emotional Twitter users who have binged the series are describing it as being "like therapy". We can relate, tbh.

The return of the popular 360-degree life makeover show - which takes its cue from Bravo's Queer Eye for the Straight Guy - saw the Fab Five arrive in Philadelphia to meet more inspiring humans and bring about some transformative lifestyle changes.

Among those people is a clergyman struggling with his identity as a gay man, who feels he "can't be the kind of leader in the church that I could be." (Sob!)

Elsewhere in the series, the fivesome meet a mum who is juggling her personal commitments with her career as a doctor and a woman who is self-conscious about her height.

The sensitivity and wisdom of 'Queer Eye's life coaches gets us every time (

We're not sure what it is about the chemistry between life coaches Bobby Berk (interiors), Tan France (fashion), Antoni Porowski (food), and Jonathan Van Ness (grooming) and Karamo Brown (culture) that works so damn well - but whatever it is, we're into it.

The show's sensitive exploration of identity, human connection and self-worth gets us every time - and Twitter clearly agrees, with some comparing watching an episode to an hour in the therapist's chair.

"Queer Eye is like therapy for me. Lots of tears for me in ep1 of season 5. Faith, sexuality, & ministering to the marginalized. I needed that today. Thank you @QueerEye," said one emotional commentator.

Another agreed: "If you can't afford your own therapist, Queer Eye Season 5 is fine."

Meanwhile, other called the series a "source of serotonin" in lockdown that had left them "happy crying".

"Current sources of serotonin: petting my dogs - queer eye season 5," wrote a fan.

"The first few episode of @QueerEye season 5 have had me crying happy tears more of this please," added another.

"Netflix dropping season 5 of queer eye is an attempt to restore the balance in the world," concluded one viewer.

Oh, Queer Eye. We're not crying, you're crying.

Season 5 of Queer Eye is available to watch on Netflix.
