What did Tracey and AJ say on GMB today?

“We got a call in the morning and a doctor said Peyton has tested positive for coronavirus.

“We were absolutely gobsmacked.”

AJ added: “It was quite mind-numbing. It was a really dark time.

“But she’s absolutely fine now. Taking all her bottles and filling all her nappies.”

Gushing over the doctors who saved Peyton’s life, AJ said: “They’re the real soldiers.

“I can’t thank them enough, they’re the real heroes. There’s no money or gift that can repay what they done.”

Meanwhile, host Lorraine Kelly then revealed they had a surprise for the couple.
