LOVE Island star Dr Alex George has been praised by his girlfriend in a gushing social media post as he continues to work amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
“This afternoon I painted a mirror in the sunshine whilst drinking wine and listening to the Beach Boys,” shared Amelia Bath, “meanwhile, Alex ran around Lewisham hospital treating Covid-19 patients.”
She added: “I’m so proud of him and I’m endlessly grateful for all the NHS staff and key workers who are working tirelessly during such uncertain times.”
Amelia has returned to her parents’ home in Dorset while Alex continues work as as an A&E doctor in London.
The 29-year-old, who is originally from Carmarthen, Wales, studied medicine at Exeter University and currently working at the University Hospital Lewisham in South East London.
He was able to do Love Island as he was on a zero hours contract at the hospital and he then returned following his stint on the show.
On March 19, 2020 Dr Alex appeared on Good Morning Britain about the experiences of front line NHS staff during the pandemic.
He told presenters Adil Ray and Ranvir Singh that people need to take the pandemic “seriously” because some people suffering from the virus are having to use ventilators.
Dr Alex said: “Patients who are becoming very unwell are requiring a lot of help and support.
“And we’re seeing that number grow. Please take it seriously, especially when it comes to our advice when comes to self-isolation, not going to pubs, clubs and bars.
“It really makes a difference and ultimately, will save lives.”
