Stacey admitted: "I've never felt luckier it be in isolation with my family knowing there are so many incredible people out there risking their lives and away from their own families to make sure we're OK and get through this… We love you so much."

The former I'm A Celebrity star cradled her son as she captioned the video: "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."

She followed-up the video with another clip, in which she hailed her family as they respected the lockdown rules and stayed indoors.

There have been similar campaigns in Italy and Spain, who have been among the hardest hit countries in the world, with COVID-19 taking thousands of lives.

The show of appreciation was acknowledged by Chief nursing officer of the NHS Ruth May.

She said: "Nurses and midwives in our care staff are working around the clock. They are working so hard. And I have a very huge personal thank you to make to them.

Ruth continued to say that she felt "very humble, very proud, and a clap for our carers will mean so much for all of our NHS staff and social care teams as well. Thank you. I appreciate it."
