Peter Andre, Rochelle Humes and Ruth Langsford lead celebs clapping for the NHS

Peter Andre, Rochelle Humes and Ruth Langsford were among the celebrities who took the time out to thank the NHS for their efforts during the coronavirus pandemic.

On Thursday night at 8pm, households around the UK came together to clap for the NHS and all health care workers on the front line, currently risking their lives to help those affected by Covid-19.

Peter was seen whooping and cheering as he clapped from his home and told fans on Instagram: ‘A million round of applause from us here at home to the wonderful @nhswebsite @nhsmillion.’

Rochelle shared a video to her Instagram story of her clapping out of the window, while joined by her daughters Alaia-Mai and Valentina.

‘Say thank you,’ she told the girls while they clapped, as she said in tribute to the NHS: ‘We love you, we can’t do it without you.’

Ruth was seen loudly clapping on her doorstep and said: ‘It’s not much but it shows we care. #clapourcarers #nhs.’

Gemma Collins was seen crying as she paid tribute on social media to health care workers.

Wiping away tears in a video she shared after the clap took place, Gemma said she found it ‘so emotional to see everyone coming together.’

She told fans alongside her post: ‘So emotional right now THANK YOU NHS and everyone on the front line ❤️ I wanted to post this video to anyone who is feeling unsettled right now #clapfornhs #clapforcarers @nhsenglandldn

Phillip Schofield, Lewis Burton, Aston Merrygold and Kimberley Walsh also joined in, while Stacey Solomon got all emotional over the sweet gesture.

She had been clapping along with baby Rex and told fans that she had to turn off the camera, filming her, because she was about to ‘burst into tears’.

Visibly emotional, Stacey then posted another video where she said she has ‘never felt more grateful’ to be isolated with her family.

She said: ‘Feel so grateful to have the privilege of being in isolation with my family, knowing there are so many INCREDIBLE selfless heroes out there risking their lives to make sure we stay safe and get through this.

‘Thank you, thank you, thank you, we love you. Our heroes.’

Like the rest of the UK, our stars are too staying at home under new lockdown measures in place by the government in a bid to control the spread of Covid-19.


Schools are currently closed, as are bars, pubs, cafes, restaurants and gyms and people are being told not to leave their homes unless for essentials or once a day to exercise.
