Susanna Reid was left emotional on Thursday morning, as a sweet clip on Good Morning Britain moved her close to tears.

She wasn't alone though, as viewers watching at home also found themselves teary over the heartwarming moment an elderly couple were reunited in a care home.

Susanna showed the clip to GMB viewers, revealing the story of Doreen, 87, and Harry, 91, who have been married for 67 years.

The pair had been separated for months due to coronavirus, with Harry having been in hospital with the virus.

Doreen had moved into a care home without her husband, as his illness meant he was not allowed to go.
