Antony Cauvin from Stratford-upon-Avon, created a shower curtain with arms as he missed giving his gran a cuddle after months apart.
The Cuddle Curtain uses a see-through shower curtain fitted with long sleeves on either side so that two people can stand opposite one another without any skin-to-skin contact.
Miriam filmed the adorable moment he and grandma Lily finally hugged again. The video was posted on social media with millions of views.
The footage captures Lily’s delight as she is able to hug her grandson for the first time in months with no fear of spreading germs.
Antony says the sleeves and the curtain itself are disinfected after each hug so that someone else can have a go and anyone who uses it has to wear their own pair of disposable gloves for extra safety.
Antony said: When you’ve known someone all your life, to be able to hug that person again… it brought a tear to everybody’s eye,’
