Abbey Clancy has apparently started stockpiling food and has bought face masks over coronavirus fears.

The model and presenter has been stocking up on tinned goods, according to her husband Peter Crouch.

The Daily Record quoted the football star as saying that it was “better to be safe than sorry” as he revealed his wife was taking some extra measures as a result of the outbreak of the virus, which has infected more than 90,000 people.

He said: “She texted me just saying, ‘I've loaded up, just in case.’

“She's bulk-buyed. We are ready. We've got most of the stuff you need. I don't know where we'd go, we haven't got a bunker or anything.”

“Yes, we have our own masks,” he added.

The couple tied the knot in 2011, several years after they started dating, and they have four children together.

They had first daughter Sophia in 2011 and welcomed second daughter Liberty in 2015. Clancy gave birth to the couple’s son Johnny in 2018 and they added a fourth child to their brood – a baby boy named Jack – last year.

More than 3,000 people have died of the virus.
