Good Morning Britain viewers were reduced to tears on Thursday after an elderly woman was reunited with her husband in his care home after their spent months apart.
Hosts Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard shared the emotional clip of the moment Betty told her husband Kenneth that she was moving in with him.
Betty surprised her beloved husband with the news after the care home staff arranged a romantic dinner for the couple.
Speaking about the tearful reunion, Ben explained: ‘One wife has taken it into her own hands not just to visit but to change the situation completely.
‘A grandfather was thrown a surprise dinner in his care home, Shell’s grandfather had been in the care home for five weeks.
‘His wife couldn’t live without him, so she decided she was going to move in.
‘This is Bornview care home in Birmingham.’
Ben went on to add that the couple had been living apart from months, and poor Kenneth didn’t know when he would see Betty again because of the coronavirus pandemic.
‘Betty made the decision to move in to Bornview with her husband so they could isolate together,’ the host continued.
‘He had no idea she was going to move in, he just thought it was a lovely romantic dinner and visit.’
During the surprise reunion, Whitney Houston’s ballad I Will Always Love You played in the background as the couple embraced.
In the clip Kenneth asked Betty if ‘she had come to take him back home’, to which she replied: ‘I have come to live with you.’
‘Are you happy?’ Betty asked him.
‘I am much better now I see you,’ Kenneth told his wife.
We’re not crying, you are.
Good Morning Britain airs at 6am on ITV.
