Peter Andre’s wife Emily has said she does believe lockdown is helping to combat coronavirus.

The NHS doctor - whose singer husband recently tested positive for COVID-19 - said that after almost a year of living under lockdown restrictions in the UK nothing seems to have changed.

Dr Emily wrote in her column in OK! magazine: “We’re in a national lockdown now and I think it’s good we’ve taken action, because things would have only got worse, but I don’t have much confidence that lockdown actually works.

"We seem to have been doing it for nearly a year and not much has changed, but that’s not to say that I know what the right thing is, and I don’t think we have many options at the moment to prevent the NHS from becoming overwhelmed."

Dr Emily revealed: "As you might have heard, Peter has tested positive for coronavirus. At the time of writing this he has just received his result back.

"He’s resting and doing well – luckily he knows a good doctor! Jokes aside, we are all keeping away from him and can’t wait to give him a hug when his self isolation passes."

Andre revealed during the first national lockdown: “She takes off all her clothes she has to put them in the washing machine, wrap a towel around her, get upstairs, have a shower, completely disinfect herself.

"So there is a good 20-30 minute process before she comes downstairs and before any of us can see her."
