Alongside the picture, the tweet read: "Hi everyone, hope you're all ok and staying safe. Mum is trying to keep some sort of learning routine, we can't recommend @specialiapps enough. They are amazing resources for children with extra needs.

"H loves them he stays engaged and loves the clap he gets at the end when he gets it right."

One fan wrote: "Hello Harvey and family."

A second tweeted: "Stay safe Harvey wee man."

Earlier this week, it was revealed Harvey, who has Down's syndrome, is in self-isolation.

In a tweet on his Twitter page, it read: "After medical advice, we've taken the decision today to protect our little H and to self-isolate.

Mum is trying to keep some sort of learning routine.

"We are all well with no symptoms but H is more vulnerable due to his suppressed immunity. Stocked up sensibly and am going to try to make the most of the quality time together... stay safe everyone."
