For the first time in their lives, twins Ailsa Ritchie and Allison Shaw will have their own birthday cakes as they celebrate turning 30 today (Friday, October 16) – one of the small perks of lockdown!
The sisters’ original birthday plans had to be cancelled due to the current circumstances and they are likely to be spending their birthday celebrations apart.
Their family sent them lots of love, and said: ‘We hope they have a special and memorable birthday all the same. We will get something organised when we can.’
