A caller on The Morning has melted the nation’s hearts after revealing she had found love in lockdown at the age of 72.
And, she is planning on proposing to him.
A viewer called Jenny phoned in to the show on Wednesday, where she explained to Holly Willoughby, Phillip Schofield and agony aunt Deidre Sanders that she unexpectantly met her partner after going for a walk.
‘I went for a walk and thought I’d treat myself to a nice cup of coffee,’ Jenny began.
‘I sat there and then this very nice looking man came and sort of said good morning and sat opposite me.
‘I’m 72 years old and then I met him again the following week and after that, we’ve been together every day and after our third lunch together he looked and me and said: “Do you know something, I think I love you”.
‘I looked and him and I thought “I’m 72” but I didn’t tell him that at first of course as I look much younger.’
Jenny went on to add that she plans to propose to her partner on Friday as a surprise for his birthday.
‘He’s my toyboy and his birthday is on Friday,’ she added.
‘He’s 69 and my surprise to him on Friday is, I’m going to ask him to marry me.’
‘This feels like a movie,’ Holly chipped in. ‘This is just amazing.’
‘This is the best story,’ Phillip continued.
Taking to Twitter after the segment, many viewers admitted to shedding a tear over Jenny’s romantic story.
One tweeted: ‘Jenny’s lockdown story that she’s just told on #ThisMorning what a wonderful love story.’
Another commented: ‘Best phone in for a while. Jenny’s story was amazing! Bless her.’
One added: ‘I don’t know who the hell Jenny is… but I’m bloody happy for her, you go girl!’
