Taking to Twitter on Thursday, the couple shared a tweet from Young Minds UK, writing: "Bayo is a brilliant new initiative from The Ubele Initiative and Heads Together partners! @MindCharity, @YoungMindsUK and @bestbeginnings are bringing their mental health resources, communities and services for the Black community together in one place."

Bayo, of Yoruba origin, means "joy has found us" and the initiative is an online space to find collectives, organisations and services from across the UK – run by and for the Black community – to support mental health and wellbeing. It was funded by the National Emergencies Trust and is run by The Ubele Initiative.
