Gordon and Mary Davis, both 89, had been separated after he fell ill.

A couple have been reunited in a care home after medical treatment meant they had to spend months apart.

Gordon and Mary Davis, both 89, had been separated after he fell ill, but when a room became available at Baily House Care Home in Mansfield 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.”

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

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

Since Monday care home residents in England have been allowed two regular visitors indoors as part of an easing of coronavirus restrictions.
