Happiest of birthdays to this one @tc_childie …. you gorgeous, funny,gentle,loving, beautiful human. Two and a half years in and what a family we have become and as you said to me in bed this morning… “isn’t it wonderful that we are still so much in love” Yes it is Bubba…. thank you for sharing your life with me. Once lockdown is over we can celebrate with our families and friends. All together. You are my home and my adventure and you make sense of it all. I love you and my girls love you too. So much. ❤️
She told the Mirror: “I did have symptoms in that first week. I think my partner did too.
“I had a sore throat, a terrible headache and I felt so lethargic. It was not like a normal flu.
“I didn’t have any fever or chest pain. We didn’t get tested but who knows. You also don’t know if you are going to get it again.”

Tamzin, who has daughters Florence, 11, and seven-year-old Marnie, with ex Tom Ellis, admitted it was tough to video call her pals.
She’s struggling with not being able to embrace them.
She added that her main objective is “staying alive and keeping your mental health intact”.
However, she’s joked she’s trying “not to come out of it a fat alcoholic”.
Tamzin recently revealed Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke offered to read to her daughters to help with homeschooling.
She tweeted: “I’m a lucky one. I have @emiliaclarke offering to read stories to my girls, live!
“I have chef friends happy to drop off food.
“A boyfriend who is bleaching the house, and a whole heap of friends who are offering support but I’m still going slightly crazy!”
Despite this, the 49-year-old star found her first day of homeschooling challenging.
On March 23, she wrote: “I’m already at the end of my tether with home schooling and it’s 10am.”
