Emily has continued to work as a medical professional during the COVID-19 crisis, working long shifts and seeing increasingly more unwell patients battling the deadly virus. 

Praising her ex Peter's spouse, Katie told MailOnline: 'I feel so blessed, I am grateful to both Peter, Kieran and to Emily for being out there on the front line, it’s times like these that you see the bigger picture and learn from that.'

The star also revealed she is hoping to see Junior and Princess again this weekend, after MailOnline revealed she's rented a six-bedroom Surrey mansion mere minutes away from their home with Peter.

She added: 'It works being closer to the kids.'

Sharing her experience of being on the frontline, Emily says she feels 'lucky' she can rely on Pete to take over at home and is overwhelmed by the 'kindness' people have shown to healthcare staff in recent weeks.

Writing for The Sun she said: 'I think I speak for many NHS and key workers when I say it's a very anxious time at the moment. 

'The number of kind gestures I have seen is overwhelming. People bringing in food for hospital workers, offering them places to stay or simply just words of encouragement.'
