GMB fans in tears as elderly couple reunite in care home after Covid heartbreak

Good Morning Britain returned to our screens on Thursday and fans were reduced to tears during the latest edition of the ITV breakfast show.

Viewers at home were overcome with emotion as hosts Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard watched a video of an elderly lady surprising her husband by moving into his care home so they were no longer apart.

The pair were unable to see each other because of the current coronavirus restrictions.

In the tear-jerking clip, Betty told her husband Kenneth that he was moving in with him so they were together again.

She decided to surprise Kenneth after staff members at the care home around a romantic dinner for the couple, complete with red heart balloons.

Betty made the choice to join Kenneth as she couldn't bear to be apart from her husband any longer.

Viewers at home rushed to their keyboards to discuss the heartwarming video clip.

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Betty and Kenneth. How lovely was that."

Another added: "I'm in bits."

A third person said: "Omg the tears, so moving."

Presenter Ben, 44, 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.

"They had been living apart for months, Kenneth didn't know when he was going to see Betty again because of Covid-19.

"So Betty made the decision to move in to Bornview with her husband so they could isolate together.

"Kenneth had no idea she was going to move in, he just thought it was a lovely romantic dinner and visit."

Whitney Houston's ballad I Will Always Love You plays as Betty embraces Kenneth at a meal surrounded by love heart balloons.

Kenneth asks Betty if she had come to take him back home with her, and she says: "I have come to live with you."

The couple are overwhelmed with emotion as they sob together, with Kenneth saying: "I am much better now I see you."
