Emily Atack

The I'm A Celebrity star recently revealed she felt "lonely" during quarantine and said she would "give anything to have a row with a husband right now". Despite her candid confession, Emily revealed she has found a solution to help her get through this difficult time. "I'm a very strong person, there's definitely been some difficult moments being on your own," she said on Lorraine via video link. "I'm the least lonely person in the world, surrounded by family and friends in real life."

She added: "It's so awful, we have to look at the positives in life. If we've got our health… it's the most important thing in the world. Everything is so difficult, but if you have your health, friends and family, it's good."

On Instagram, Alex revealed being alone has been hard at times after his partner made a video montage of fans' well-wishes. "Love you Amelia," he said upon seeing the clip. "I have isolated myself away from the people that I love because I couldn't risk giving it to anyone."

He added: "To be honest it has been really hard being alone at times. Without me knowing Amelia asked people to send in messages of support and what they are up to in isolation. THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYONE. I will stop crying at some point. Definitely will be going to work with a smile on my face."

The professional dancer took the opportunity to showcase his secret skill – upcycling furniture! He recently upcycled an old chair using newspaper from World War II - and the result was incredible! "From this, I made…" he wrote alongside a bucket chair that had a yellow seat and a light brown wooden base. In the following image, Neil proudly showcased his finished project, writing: "Check it out, old WW2 newspapers." Neil not only transformed the seat but he painted the base black, giving his chair an edgier look. On Wednesday, the TV star revealed he made a new outdoor seating area with disused wooden panels.
