IT'S something we all take for granted.

But for a Renfrewshire mum who was Scotland's first double hand transplant feeling the cold of a can of a juice was a moment to treasure.

Corinne Hutton, from Lochwinnoch, lost her hands and lower legs in 2013 after a bout of pneumonia turned into sepsis.

The 48-year-old was given a five per cent chance of survival and chose to have the amputations to increase her chances.

She suffered an agonising wait for a double hand transplant, including countless false alarms, before she finally received her new hands in January this year.

Since then, Corinne, who set up the charity Finding Your Feet, has spent the last few months getting to grips with her new hands. 

And while we might take the simple task of sipping an ice cold Irn-Bru for granted, for Corinne it was a sign that her recovery is well underway.

"I thought at first it would be difficult to believe they are my own, but instantly it felt as if they were mine.

"And now I need to try and remember that I have been given this gift and I never want to forget that."

Corinne appeared on The One Show last night along with hosts Matt Baker and Alex Jones and guests Lesley Joseph, Les Dennis and Mehreen Baig. 

She said: "The hands are fantastic and well ahead of schedule. I am doing everything ahead of schedule and they are doing great.

"I got a cold can of juice and felt the cold through the palm of my hands and that's a first. The sensation is obviously coming back.

"I am always quite determined and pushy. You've got to do certain things to push them. I am nervous of breaking them, so have to be careful."
