Back in March, the actor, who has Down's syndrome, went into self isolation as he is "more vulnerable due to suppressed immunity."

But, the coronavirus lockdown didn't stop Harvey from making some incredible achievements.

As well as learning to ride a bike without stabilisers, he also received an excellent school report.

This is because they require a chaperone on set and due to new social distancing guidelines, they need to reduce how many people they have on set.

This means Harvey and other child stars, such as the famous Flanagan siblings, have been unable to return to work.

However, Leo has been mentioned in the recent lockdown episodes.
