Nadia and her husband share daughters Maddie, 17, and Kiki, 12, who also feature on their YouTube channel. The star has been sharing regular glimpses into how the family have been coping during isolation. As part of the family's YouTube channel, they have taken to sharing daily one-hour live CCTV streams direct from their beautiful garden, which features a huge lawn and plenty of plants and bushes. The former Eastenders actress recently wrote on her Instagram Stories: "Swipe up to spend an hour LIVE in our garden… After me banging on and on about feeling guilty about having a garden @mark_Adderley has found a way to share it… So every day for an hour we set up a LIVE camera for an hour."

However, Nadia revealed that she initially struggled to come to terms with lockdown life. In an interview with The Mirror, the star admitted: "In the first week, I wasn't dealing with it well at all. My dad had just had a heart operation and I was so frantic. I was watching the news 24/7 and I had high anxiety… I find myself wondering what the world will look like when we come out of all of this. I know we're lucky because we've got quite a big house and garden, I have a husband I like and children who are well-behaved."
