Three Lifelong Friends Move in Together So They Don't Need To Isolate Alone

Lifelong friends Doreen, Dotty and Carol have been through divorce and loss together.

Now they are making waves by deciding to move in together while self-isolating. This way they will be able to Netflix binge together, pull resources and have a cheeky glass of wine with company.

According to guidance outlined by the government, members of the public who are at least 70 years old should take particular care to practise social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking to BBC Breakfast, the ladies revealed that they’ll be shacking up together for the foreseeable future and their plan going forward is to binge watch The Crown.

The three ladies spoke with BBC Breakfast reporter Jayne McCubbin about their plans, explaining how they have been through everything together, from divorce to loss.

[We’ll spend] a week in our own homes in self-isolation and if we were still fit and well then we would decide which house to go and live in, because we’ve all got the same amount of rooms – bedrooms et cetera – we’re alright.

They are currently in Carol's home and they haven't decided where to head next.

‘Dotty’s got a lovely long back garden which would be great for exercising. I’ve got no garden but I do have a yarden.’ Doreen feels her house might be the winner though, she has access to a Netflix account.

Dotty jokes: ‘We’ll have a supply of wine in,’ then grabbed a bottle of wine and a glass and told host Jayne: ‘It’s for when we’ve finished [the interview].’

Kind of hoping to get an invite! Have fun ladies.
