The trio, who are in good spirits, appeared on BBC Breakfast today to speak to presenter Jayne McCubbin.
The ladies have revealed they plan to exercise in Dotty's garden and watch episodes of The Crown in Netflix to get through.
Speaking on this morning's programme, Jayne said the friends have made an "isolation pact" and will move in together to face "whatever lies ahead together".
She added: "Amd I've got Netflix so we can watch the Crown."
'WE LOOK AFTER EACH OTHER'
And far from sweeping toilet rolls from supermarket shelves, the presenter joked that the only thing the pals have panic-bought is wine.

The ladies, who raised a glass as the show screened before 8am, told Jayne: "We've seen each other through divorces and loss – we go on holiday together, we look after each other."
