Peter Andre calls out Caprice and labels her ‘foolish’ for claiming she knows as much as doctors about coronavirus

We’re living in such scary and unpredictable times, and I fear that we haven’t yet grasped the severity of our situation and the impact that the coronavirus pandemic will have on our ageing population.

On top of that, millions of people have had work cancelled or postponed, and I worry about small business owners, the self-employed and all those who are worrying about how they’re going to pay their mortgages and rent right now.

I’ve got an elderly mother and father living in Australia, who I now won’t be able to see until this is all over – all I can do is hope they’re going to be OK. Mine and my family’s thoughts are with you all.

In my opinion, there’s only one news topic to discuss – the coronavirus. Emily’s right on the frontline. She tells me the atmosphere inside the hospital has been intense, but equally tells me that she, and the other staff, are being very well supported.

Of course, as her husband, I worry about her exposure to the virus, but I’m so proud of her for helping others.

The Government announced the closure of schools in England and Wales, saying exams won’t go ahead in this academic year. As a parent, I feel conflicted. I feel better knowing they’re not in an environment where they could contract the virus – but then, officials are saying children aren’t vulnerable.

While I hope it stays that way, what impact will not being at school have on them long term? Especially for children around Junior and Bista’s ages. I’m lucky enough that I can work from home, but what about those parents who can’t?

I didn’t see Caprice Bourret’s appearance on Channel 5’s Jeremy Vine programme last week, but I heard that she was slammed by viewers for arguing with a qualified doctor about how to contain the coronavirus.

She apparently claimed that she knew just as much as the health experts because she’d read reports online.

If Caprice was intentionally trying to undermine the doctor, then she’s absolutely foolish, because it’s the medical professionals who are being told first hand what is going on. I know who I’d listen to!

Stacey Dooley has admitted that she’s been too busy to pop to Buckingham Palace to collect her MBE. She was awarded the gong in 2018 for services to broadcasting, but admitted last week that she was busy working at the time and never rearranged fetching it. Maybe we should start calling her Stacey Doo-little!

What can I say, I’ve had a lot of time on my hands, haha! If I was lucky enough to be given an MBE by Her Majesty, I’d probably make a special trip to collect it. Who wouldn’t?!

Corrie actor Jack P Shepherd has revealed that he’s been hiding a secret hobby – he’s a champion dominoes player who has won six titles over the past decade. Well, that’s funny, because I’m a champion Domino’s eater!

On a serious note, though, I’m secretly a pretty damn good backgammon player. It’s in our Greek culture and, growing up, my brothers and I used to play a lot with our dad.

My dad and I actually had a few games when I was out in Oz recently, and he still beats me.

Peter Andre’s wife makes dig at Katie Price as she talks rushed marriages

Emily Andre took a bit of a swipe at her husband Peter Andre's ex Katie Price when she said people shouldn't rush marriage.

Katie has been married three times, walking down the aisle within a year of meeting each of her spouses.

She met Peter during their stint on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2004, and they tied the knot in 2005.

They share children Junior, 14, and Princess, 12.

They split in 2009 and she met her second husband Alex Reid that same year.

They married in 2010 but divorced in 2012.

Katie dated a few other men after the split, and met her third husband Kieran Hayler later that same year.

They married in 2013 and split in 2018.

They share children Jett, six, and Bunny, five.

Katie, who is also mum to Harvey, 17, from a previous relationship with Dwight Yorke, began dating Kris Boyson a few weeks after her split from Kieran and they got engaged in 2019, but later split.

Emily and Peter met in 2010, but it took two years for their friendship to develop into a romance, and Peter even asked her dad's permission before asking her out on a date.

Peter proposed in 2013 and they tied the knot in 2015. They share kids Amelia, six, and Theodore, three.

And it seems Emily isn't a huge fan of whirlwind relationships.

  • Katie Price begs sick fans not to touch her as she breaks cover amid coronavirus fears

Writing in her OK! magazine column, she argued for a more traditional courtship as she shared her views on Netflix show Love Is Blind.

She wrote: "I've been obsessed with the new Netflix show Love Is Blind. It centres around people meeting, felling in love and agreeing to marry before they've even seen each other.

"It's hugely entertaining and amazing to watch from a psychological perspective, but it does make a bit of a mockery of marriage.

"Just because these people have made a great connection, there shouldn't be the pressure to marry within a matter of weeks. I think in reality, the initial spark between two people can be based on a lot of things, but it's important to remember that looks will fade so personality is by far the most important factor for me."

Peter Andre fans ‘told not touch star at Q&A session over coronavirus fears’

Peter Andre fans were reportedly told not to touch or take selfies with the singer at a Q&A session because of fears of spreading coronavirus.

Signs warning supporters were reportedly put up at an event called An Evening with Peter Andre on Saturday night at the Central Hall in Southampton.

The Sun reported that the signs read: “Due to the recent cases of the coronavirus please DO NOT have any physical contact with Peter Andre.

“Please DO NOT take any selfies with Peter Andre. Apologies for any inconvenience. Thank you.”

One disgruntled fan, Gemma Smith, 35, told The Sun: “Who does he think he is? Not even the Queen has made such demands.”

Placed on the table on the stage was a bottle of hand gel which allegedly cost punters £20.

The coronavirus warnings at the event come after Peter voiced his fears that his wife Emily MacDonagh could catch the deadly illness.

Last month The Mysterious Girl singer, 46, said he started worrying about Emily, who is a doctor, when he went to the airport and saw customs officers wearing masks.

Writing in his new! magazine column, he said: "I was at an airport last week and all the customs officers were wearing masks. It really alarmed me.

"When I first saw people in the streets wearing them I thought it was a bit extreme, but the more I see and read, the more I'm beginning to think, 'Is it more serious than we've been led to believe?'

"I've started noticing people sneezing and coughing and my instant reaction is, 'Have they got the virus?'

"I know the NHS and Public Health England are doing all they can.

"Obviously Emily being a doctor brings it close to home for me and, of course, I'm worried about her. But I'm also proud of her doing her job."

Yesterday Scotland's first case of coronavirus has been confirmed, bringing the UK's infection total to 36 as medics brace for the potentially deadly bug to spread even further.

Twelve new coronavirus cases were confirmed in England, the Department of Health announced earlier on Sunday.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock admitted it was "inevitable" the deadly virus would continue to spread, and did not rule out following China's lead in shutting down cities if the Covid-19 outbreak escalates.

Three of the latest cases are family members of a man from Surrey who tested positive on Friday, becoming the first person to contract the virus within the UK.

All four are adults, including one more from Surrey and two from West Sussex, and are not GPs or health workers.
