Emily Andrea says she "can’t wait" to hug her husband Peter Andre once he is out of isolation following his positive Covid-19 test.

It was recently revealed that the singer had tested positive for coronavirus but Emily says Pete is "coping well" and "resting" at their Surrey home, which they share with their children Millie, seven, and Theo, four, and Pete’s children Princess, 13, and Junior, 15.

Writing in her OK! magazine column, the NHS doctor shared: “As you might have heard, Peter has tested positive for coronavirus.

"At the time of writing this he has just received his result back. He’s resting and doing well – luckily he knows a good doctor!”

She continued: “Jokes aside, we are all keeping away from him and can’t wait to give him a hug when his self-isolation passes.”

Taking to Instagram, Pete thanked his wife for being a ‘legend’ following his positive test.

“Thanks for being a bit of a legend the last few days @dr_emily_official,” wrote the 47 year old.

Pete also responded to a fan after they asked him if his positive Covid test means his son Theo also had coronavirus after he thought he had picked something up from the youngster.

The Mysterious Girl singer replied: “After looking at all the symptoms he had with the rash etc it’s quite possible. Just honestly don’t know.'

Pete said he was “aching all over” and his back was in “agony” whilst waiting for the results of his test, but he felt ‘grateful’ he hadn’t become sicker with the virus.

Meanwhile, Emily also opened up about her thoughts on the UK being in its third national lockdown, but admitted that she’s not sure if the measures work that well to suppress the spread of the virus.

“We’re in a national lockdown now and I think it’s good we’ve taken action, because things would have only got worse, but I don’t have much confidence that lockdown actually works,” she wrote.

The 31 year old continued: “We seem to have been doing it for nearly a year and not much has changed, but that’s not to say that I know what the right thing is, and I don’t think we have many options at the moment to prevent the NHS from becoming overwhelmed.”

The mum-of-two thinks our "only hope" is now resting on the vaccines, which have been being administered to the elderly and frontline health workers since December.

But admitting she thinks the Government’s targets of vaccinating the most vulnerable people in the UK by mid-February is "ambitious".

“We’ve just got to hope the Government gets the vaccine rolled out as quickly as they say they will. The targets seem ambitious, but it feels like our only hope of reaching some form of normality,” she wrote.
