Writing in his new! magazine column, Pete explained: "When I told him he had to self-isolate he was excited because it meant staying at home – but when he realised he had to do all his lessons on Zoom from 8.15am, he wasn't too happy!"

The 47-year-old singer continued: "It's quite full-on for kids when they have to do the same amount of work at home, as it's not easy to stay motivated, so I give him credit for that. The main thing is that he doesn’t have any symptoms and feels fine at the moment."
