Josie Gibson emotional as she recalls being kicked out of 3 restaurants with deaf brother


“Going to the shop I don’t understand staff because they are wearing masks and I can’t tell if they are talking to me. 

“We rely on signing and lip-reading, and so it’s difficult for us, we are fed up having to explain ourselves why we aren’t wearing masks and having to explain that we are deaf, and having to explain we are lip-reading…”

Josie added: “I’m so proud of my brother and his wife for that because they were so nervous doing that… and I really do think the deaf community have been quite forgotten about during this pandemic, and they’ve just given them a voice so I could not be prouder.”

Josie explained she wanted to make everyone aware of the sunflower sign that can be worn to let others know they are exempt from wearing face coverings.

This Morning airs weekdays on ITV at 10am.
