Sarah said: “I have been told the first time my nan saw grandad was on a train to Blackpool and she didn’t have eyes for anyone else.

“My grandad is quite laid back which balances out well with my gran – they are just a perfect match from each other.”

The pair will be seeing their family today before heading off for a week away in Wales.

“They have also had a card from The Queen too which they are over the moon about,” added Sarah.
