Junior, who is 14, is following government guidelines and staying at home while keeping his distance from others.

He had a high temperature so we have to follow the guidelines and self-isolate for 14 days.

In his New! column Peter shared the news with his fans.

He said: “Last Wednesday, Junior posted a video on his Instagram saying he was showing symptoms of coronavirus.

“He had a high temperature so we have to follow the guidelines and self-isolate for 14 days.”

Life under lockdown

Peter has shared details of his home life as Britain goes under strict lockdown measures on his own Instagram page.

They included a picture of a delicious-looking curry which he had made for the family, along with details of his homeschooling, and exercise activities with his children.

On the frontline

Peter has praised wife Emily, 30, for her hard work at the frontline of the coronavirus crisis.

The couple have revealed they are sleeping in separate beds while the pandemic goes on, to try and protect their children.

In her OK! column, Emily wrote: “Of course I’m worried that I could potentially bring it home to the kids.

“But I’m trying to be sensible and washing my hands and changing out of my clothes straight away before having a shower.

“I’m also not going too near them where possible, but it’s a challenging time.”

Peter has been on Good Morning Britain to share his experience of taking over the lion’s share of childcare while Emily is at work.

He said he was “worried for her safety” – and admitted he has struggled with some of the tasks.

“I’m used to having the kids around, but I’m not used to the homework side of it,” he told Lorraine Kelly.

“The kids are starting to realise that I’m not as smart as I thought I was!’

Peter shared a video of the chaos at home on his Instagram yesterday. “Why is the Ready Brek on the floor?” he wrote on the hilarious video.
