The coronavirus lockdown could prove problematic for even the strongest of couples, spending more time at home together than ever before mixed in with factors such as juggling a career and homeschooling children to consider. However, for celebrity couples including Holly Willoughby and Dan Baldwin and Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes, the experience is actually making their bonds even stronger, and their loved-up comments and social media posts are giving us major relationship goals…

Holly Willoughby and Dan Baldwin

While she has refrained from sharing photos with her husband on social media, Holly Willoughby revealed she loves Dan more than ever due to the way he has been supporting her and their three children during the coronavirus pandemic. Speaking to a member of the public who had called in for advice from agony aunt Vanessa Feltz, Holly shared that Dan had been helping out with household chores while their family is self-isolating, and his efforts have not only been "amazing", but led Holly to gush live on air: "Right now I have never loved that man more, let me tell you."

After Ruth shared a video of herself skipping in the garden revealing she is aiming to get fit during their extra time at home, Eamonn commented: "She doesn't even tell me she's thinking about things like this… what a woman! My respect!" The 60-year-old revealed he even has a cardboard cutout of his wife in his home office so they're never apart!

Peter Andre has praised his wife on several occasions during the COVID-19 pandemic, as she is working on the frontline as an NHS doctor while he stays at home and looks after the children. The singer said of his wife on Good Morning Britain: "But she's my absolute hero for doing this, so many people are just stepping up to the plate. This is a really serious issue and I've agreed with you all along when you're telling people, 'Listen to what's going on. This isn't a joke, this is serious.'"

Like many celebrity couples, Gemma Atkinson and Gorka Marquez are relishing the opportunity to spend more time at home together than they ever have during the lockdown, with the radio host saying they are "making the most of it" as it's something they likely won't have again. "Since me and Gorks got together our whole relationship has technically been long distance. The first year living in separate cities followed by us moving in together but his tours and Strictly taking him away for weeks at a time. He was away on tour for 3wks when Mia was just 2 days old. I keep reminding myself of that in this lockdown," Gemma wrote on Instagram.

"Although the circumstances aren’t great for anyone, we’re never going to get this length of time together in one go again. Ever. We’re making the most of it and yes it's kind of annoying when he watches Spanish news really loud because they talk SO fast but I’m glad that he’s my 'cell mate' in all of this. I wouldn’t be locked down with anyone else."
