Peter Andre has shared the measures his doctor wife Emily must take before she can interact with her children after a shift in order to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

The Mysterious Girl singer shares daughter, Amelia, 6, with his wife of almost five years as well as son Theo, 3. The four of them are living with his older children Junior, 14, and Princess, 12, who also spending time with their mum Katie Price.

Speaking via video link on Loose Women, Andre, 47, told of how he doesn't let his younger children know when their mother is home so they don't come into contact with her before she's disinfected herself.

"I don't tell the kids she's home because if I hear the door and they know that she's home they're going to run up to her," he said.

Andre went on: "She takes off all her clothes she has to put them in the washing machine, wrap a towel around her, get upstairs, have a shower, completely disinfect herself.

"So there is a good 20-30 minute process before she comes downstairs and before any of us can see her. Obviously, I can hear that she's home."
