She said: “Normally we spend bank holiday weekends visiting family and friends, but this weekend we’re staying at home so we’re going to make the most of it by watching lots of family favourites on TV.

“We’re so used to having the freedom to go out and enjoy the lovely weather, but it’s so important that we all do our bit to protect the NHS and help prevent coronavirus spreading by staying at home.”

Willis, 44, is married to Busted singer Matt Willis, 36, and the couple have three children.
