"Lockdown's been OK for me. I can't believe we're on lockdown 2.0, as everyone's calling it," she told Cameron, whose #TOGETHERBANDs are handmade in Nepal by a collective of women who have been rescued from human trafficking.

"I'm very lucky to have had my health throughout number 1 and number 2 and I just can't really begin to imagine what people are going through, who are getting ill."
