With the nation now on lockdown in a bid to stop the spread of COVID-19, many of us are trying to find ways to keep our hands busy that doesn't include snacking on unhealthy foods! Whether we're working on our fitness, tackling those DIY tasks or giving the house a good spring clean, we're not alone in trying to find tasks to curb our isolation boredom. But, unlike 'everyday folk', many celebrities are having to get their hands dirty as they adjust to life without 'the help'. While cleaners are still allowed to work during the lockdown, as long as they keep a two-metre distance, some celebs appear to not be taking any chances. Let's talk a look at some who are having to clean their own homes while stuck in lockdown…

Nicole Scherzinger 

Nicole Scherzinger put an envious twist on household chores after she shared a very impressive pic of herself in the splits position whilst mopping the floor. Captioning the Instagram photo, she wrote: "Causal quarantine cleaning and cooking attire whilst listening to @todrick’s new album #QuarantineQueen." If we could do this, we’d be cleaning all the time!

She recently also showed off her latest 'must-have' accessories – a pair of yellow Marigolds which she had branded with her 'VB' initials. Sharing a photo of the gloves to her Instagram Stories, the fashion designer wrote: "Loving my marigolds! They have become my new best friend!!"

Lydia Bright went on a furious cleaning rampage after revealing she had moved back into her own Essex home after staying at her parents' house with baby Loretta. The former TOWIE star's decision to move comes after Debbie and Dave welcomed two new members of the family. On her Instagram Stories, Lydia explained: "Yesterday two new members joined our foster family. They are absolutely adorable and I'm so excited for Loretta to have playmates when she visits nanny and grandad. It does mean there is no more room at the inn. So me and Loretta have finally moved to our house. Going to miss being with my family all day, every day. But I am going to walk past the house daily for chats through the window. Lydia renovated her own home shortly before she gave birth to Loretta.

She said during a phone-in segment: "I've said to Dan, 'I'll do the ironing but you've got to go and put it all away'. So I'll leave it all on the stairs and then he'll take it and put it away. He's been amazing! He's just sent me a picture of the bed which he's stripped, he's put in the wash, he's put clean sheets on. Right now I have never loved that man more let me tell you." How sweet!
