They surprised Quinn, six, Morgan, eight, and Mackenzie, 14, on Christmas Day in Leeds.

Barbara said: “We normally spend Christmas day with them and we wondered what we were going to do with all that’s been going on.

“We wanted to be careful because if we got poorly the boys would feel like they were responsible for it – which isn’t what we wanted.

“But the costumes worked really well. Totally enclosed. It was the best idea I’ve ever had I think."

Barbara stumbled across the clever idea while Christmas shopping online.

She said it was the "best £15 she'd ever spent".

Barbara added: “This year has been so hard. It was out of this world, those six minutes, just pure Christmas joy and something that cannot be described."
