The campaign urged Brits to go outside at 8pm this evening and clap to show their appreciation for our frontline carers at this worrying time.

Cheers and applause were heard up and down the country, with some of Britain's biggest stars taking to Instagram to reveal that they had also done their bit for the cause.

Stacey, 30, was reduced to tears as she filmed herself and 10-month-old son Rex clapping at the window.

With her eyes welling up in the short clip, she captioned the post: "I don't know if you can hear but the whole street is clapping and I had to stop the camera because I was about to burst into tears."

Gemma Collins also found the whole thing overwhelming

She later added: "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."

Gemma also found the entire thing emotional, breaking down in tears as she posted about the clapping on Instagram.

She said: "It was really emotional to see everyone coming together at this time.

"Everyone's in the unknown at the minute and it's just amazing that everyone came out and showed their support.

Meanwhile, Victoria filmed husband David and their three youngest children clapping from their home.
