Teachers have heaped praise on Gemma Collins after the reality star shared a powerful message as she revealed she is homeschooling her nephew.
People all over the country have had to become teachers as well as parents, with the lockdown forcing the majority of children to stay home from school.
But the children of keyworkers and vulnerable youngsters have continued to attend school during the coronavirus pandemic.
"My heartbeat, Hayden," she wrote in the caption of a sweet picture of herself kissing her nephew on the cheek, shared on Instagram this afternoon (Wednesday, May 20).
"I never thought I would be a teacher at any point this year, but how lovely it is. 8.30 am registration, then lessons start!
"This is a big shout out and sending love and patience to all the parents, siblings, [and] families wearing their teacher hat!
"And to all the teachers who are still working hard behind the scenes. The sun is shining. Here's to a beautiful day."
In the comments, teachers praised Gemma for her message of support.
One said: "Thank you, Gemma! I'm a teacher."
From all the teachers across the nation - thanks.
Another wrote: "Thank you for saying that, Gemma. No one seems to support teachers these days X."
"From all the teachers across the nation - thanks @gemmacollins1," commented a third, adding: "It's never easy but it's always fun."
Some fans recognised Hayden from the latest series of Gemma's reality show.
"@gemmacollins1 Hayden is such a babe," said one. "Loved him on the show, he's gonna be a star xx."
"Watched your latest show and absolutely loved Hayden," said another. "What a little superstar he is xx."
Usually called Diva Forever, Gemma's ITVBe programme returned this year with a lockdown makeover.
Diva On Lockdown aired over three episodes and showed the GC going through the early days of the pandemic hitting Britain.
