'Just so lovely' - Teary-eyed Toni Street explains how All Blacks Israel Dagg, Sir Graham Henry helped her through illness

Toni Street wiped away tears as she explained how All Blacks star Israel Dagg and former coach Sir Graham Henry offered their support to her when she was "in a really low space".

During a segment on The Hits Breakfast Show this morning, Street, along with fellow hosts Sam Wallace and Sarah Gandy were sharing stories of personal celebrity encounters that were positive and left a lasting impression.

The "nice allegations" started as a Twitter trend of sharing positive celebrity experiences in contrast to the sexual harassment claims circling and tainting Hollywood. 

When Street, also a host of TVNZ1's Seven Sharp, was "really sick" and "going through infusions", Dagg and Henry sent her messages of support.

"Both of them offered up their holiday houses for me, and said if you just want to get away from it all and just go and have some time - and I remember reading them and just crying," she said.

"It actually makes me teary now," an emotional Street said.

"It was just so lovely. It makes such a difference. You actually don't know how what the one interaction is doing for the person's day."

In 2015, Street opened up about her diagnoses of Churg-Strauss syndrome.
