Ben explained to viewers that Kenneth had been thrown a surprise dinner at his care home.

Kenneth wasn’t sure when he would get to see Betty due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

I have come to live with you. Alright? I’ve moved in.

Ben said Betty “couldn’t live without” her husband so decided to move in with him so they could isolate together.

In emotional footage, Kenneth is seen hugging and kissing his beloved wife.
