Easy Ways to Live Well presenter Steph McGovern was full of praise for the staff at her local supermarket amid public fears about the coronavirus pandemic. Despite panic buying taking place in many areas of the UK, the star revealed that in Asda on Wednesday morning, staff were limiting products to three of each per customer and remained polite and friendly. Taking to Twitter, she wrote: "Impressed with @asda this morn. Max purchase of 3 of same product per customer. Busy but calm. Staff really helpful." She finished her message with three clapping hands emojis.

Thanks for the funny work stories you've sent too... howling reading them. Some of them will definitely feature."

Released every Monday, the show looks at the funny, silly, and unbelievable things that take place in people's workplaces. Steph presents alongside her childhood friend Claire. The broadcaster seems an apt choice for the podcast as her career is going from strength to strength, as is her personal life! The 37-year-old welcomed a baby girl with her girlfriend in November last year, and as well as the podcast, is set to start work on her own TV show soon.
