Emily Andre has admitted that being stuck indoors was ‘wearing a little thin’ after her family was forced to isolate for 10 days following Peter’s son Junior’s Covid battle.
The family has been forced to isolate three times in the past year and the frontline NHS doctor, 31, said it has made her feel empathy for her patients and colleagues.
Emily wrote about their 10 days of isolation in her candid column for OK! magazine, which ended over the weekend, and admitted it was ‘unlucky’ as they are so careful.
‘Being inside is wearing a little thin’: Emily Andre has admitted that being stuck indoors was ‘wearing a little thin’ after her family was forced to isolate for 10 days following Peter’s son Junior’s Covid battle
The doctor admitted that her two children – Amelia, seven, and Theodore, four, who she shares with Peter, as well as his two other kids – Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, who he shares with ex-wife Katie Price, were ‘bored’ during the isolation.
In an honest account of how they balanced homeschooling and lockdown as a family-of-six, Emily admitted that the four children all had more screen time than normal.
She penned: ‘At the time of writing this, we still have a few days left in self-isolation after Junior tested positive for Covid-19. It feels unlucky as we’re so careful and there are hardly any cases in our areas.’
Talking about how the children were coping at the time, Emily added: ‘Unsurprisingly they’ve been bored but they’ve actually been really good.’

The doctor also praised their neighbours for supporting them through isolation and bringing them food.
Talking about Junior’s symptoms, Emily said he had not been himself or eating properly but acknowledged he had been ‘brave’.
‘I reminded him that now he’s had the virus it means he’s got some antibodies for a while at least,’ she added.
Emily said that despite being stuck inside the same house together she confirmed that none of the other family members had experienced any symptoms.

It comes after the doctor’s husband Peter shared a video of the ‘screaming and madness’ in their house during 10 ‘crazy’ days of isolation over the weekend.
In a new YouTube clip shared on Friday, the Mysterious Girl hitmaker, 48, gave a candid insight into lockdown with his doctor wife Emily and four children. The family’s quarantine has since ended.
It comes after Junior told fans that he ‘doesn’t want to die’ while sharing a dramatic update on how he’s feeling amid his coronavirus battle last week. He first revealed he had tested positive on 29 April.

The teen detailed how his symptoms have been changing, explaining that he’s now suffering from a ‘sore throat’ but originally had a banging head and achey body.
The son of Peter and Katie also reassured fans that although not feeling 100 per cent, it is ‘not severe, just annoying’.
During the Live video chat, filmed while he was in isolation with his family at his dad’s house, some of Junior’s followers asked if he was worried.
Staying positive, Junior replied: ‘Don’t manifest it. Listen, if it happens it happens. But I know God wants me to live my life to the finish, so I’m not gonna die from Covid and if I do, I do. I don’t wanna die.’

Junior then detailed how his ‘severe… just annoying’ symptoms have changed since he started feeling poorly, before admitting that he’s a little baffled as to why he’s been getting them as a young person.
He said: ‘The first few days, my head was the worst. My head was banging so much. I don’t know how I got symptoms, because I’m a child, I’m 15. But my head was banging, my body was aching, my throat was fine.
‘And then all of a sudden my body’s sort of stopped aching… my head still bangs but not as much… but my throat is so sore. It’s killing me.
‘It’s not part of the symptoms I don’t think, but maybe I’ve got something else with Covid. Yeah, I have Covid.’
Junior also detailed how feeling achey and having a ‘bad backache’ has meant he’s had trouble staying occupied as he can’t play his PlayStation 5.

Announcement: The eldest child of Peter Andre, 48 and Katie Price, 42 shared a message with his followers that read: ‘I have tested positive for COVID’ in April
He explained that looking at his phone or the TV screen while playing his games can make his ‘head hurt’ so he ‘doesn’t actually know what to do’.
He then continued that although he does have Covid and is showing a series of symptoms: ‘It’s not severe… it’s just annoying.’
Junior’s sister Princess also gave fans an insight into their time in isolation as she shared a video to Instagram last week.
The teenager filmed herself while she was waiting for dad Peter to prepare the family’s lunch, admitting that she was ‘so bored’.

Princess also received a call from her mum Katie while she was on live with her 410 Instagram followers, but declined the call saying it was probably her sister Bunny.
Junior announced he has tested positive for COVID-19 in an Instagram post in April.
He shared a message with his followers that read: ‘I have tested positive for COVID.’

Third time: It marks Junior’s third brush with the virus. In March 2020, Junior revealed that he was showing symptoms of coronavirus (pictured with mum Katie last year)
It marks Junior’s third brush with the virus. In March 2020, Junior revealed that he was showing symptoms of coronavirus, just hours after his father expressed fears over his children contracting it.
Taking to Instagram Stories, Junior said that while he has not been diagnosed, he was making sure he was staying safe.
Junior said: ‘These aren’t easy times as we know. I am videoing this to tell you I am showing symptoms of the coronavirus. It is not me saying I have it , I am showing symptoms. Everyone please stay safe these aren’t easy times like I said.’
In November, Junior was forced to isolate again due to a coronavirus outbreak at his school. According to his dad, Junior was annoyed he still had to complete his lessons at home but luckily didn’t have any symptoms.
The teenager splits his time between his father and mother’s homes, as does his sister Princess Andre, 13, who Peter 48, also shares with Katie, 42.
Peter split from the former glamour model in 2009 after four years of marriage and went on to welcome Amelia, seven, and Theo, four, with his current wife Emily McDonagh, 31.
Katie is mum to Harvey, 18, from her relationship with Dwight Yorke. While she welcomed Bunny, six, and Jett, seven, with ex Kieran Hayler.
Peter also tested positive for Covid in December, while his wife Emily – who has been working as a frontline NHS doctor during the pandemic – tested positive in June.
As for Junior’s mum Katie, she received her first vaccine in April alongside her beau Carl Woods, with both falling sick with a fever and nausea afterwards.
Katie’s eldest son Harvey has now been fully vaccinated against the virus. The teen was rushed to hospital in February after his first dose of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine caused his temperature to sky-rocket.
He has allegedly suffered little reaction to his second dose.
