An elderly married couple have been reunited in a care home after medical treatment and the coronavirus pandemic meant they had to spend months apart. 

Gordon and Mary Davis, both 89, had been separated after Gordon fell ill, but when a room became available at Baily House Care Home in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, they were finally brought back together.

A video of the reunion was posted on the home’s Facebook page with the caption: "Our lovely Mary has had a real surprise today… her beloved husband Gordon has come to live here at Baily House with her, after not seeing each other for several months, it was certainly a very emotional reunion."

The clip has received nearly four million views on the social media platform.

Mrs Davis added: "It was wonderful to finally see him, I cried buckets."
