Dressed in a casual hoodie, Victoria can be seen asking them how they are all feeling during this challenging time.

She then tells them: “I hope you’re feeling the love that the whole country is giving you.”

Clap for carers

Victoria, David and their kids Romeo, Cruz and Harper have been taking part in the nation’s Clap For Carers every Thursday at 8pm.

She told the medics: “The clapping…every time I watch the videos of everybody clapping, I get quite emotional.

“I hope you can feel that from all of us?”

One of the doctors replied: “The support is amazing. We are getting a lot of support.”

The whole country feels so humbled by everything you’re doing.

Another staff member explained that many have had to move to Scotland from far afield to do their job.

She added: “People have offered accommodation up for free and they’re giving us meals in hospital. It’s been amazing.”

One medic then explained that they are all working 12.5 hour shifts now.

Victoria insisted: “It’s so wonderful what you’re doing. The whole country feels so humbled by everything you’re doing.

“The hours you are doing and being away from your loved ones must be so difficult.”
