“We do not let coronavirus take our spirit. Keep smiling and stay strong 👊🏼.”

The hard-working doctor, who was on Love Island in 2018, had been a prominent figure during the coronavirus outbreak, treating patients with a picture of himself in the villa taped to his scrubs.

Thanking Brits for continuing to carry out Thursday night’s clap for the NHS last week he posted a picture of him alongside colleagues on the ward.

Speaking on Lorraine last month, Alex admitted that some days he had returned home from battling coronavirus in tears.

He explained: “There have been some difficult times. There’s been days where I’ve been coming home very upset and in tears at the things I’ve seen.

“That’s being completely honest. I’m quite open to speak to my colleagues at work. We’ve got a wellness room, which actually we can kind of go to if things get a bit difficult.

“I have a little bit time alone. Or speak to a colleague or a friend and go through what you’re experiencing.”
