Amanda Holden appears to have returned to work at Heart FM just a day after hosting her show from home amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The TV and radio star, 49, shared a series of funny updates as she presented her programme at home in her silky, pink pyjamas on Thursday.

But she shared a video on Instagram on Friday showing she was back at work and that she and co-host Ashley Roberts were taking “social distancing” seriously.

The cute clip shows the pair standing apart in accordance with official advice, and was captioned: “Practicing #socialdistancing keeping you company @thisisheart -today and every morning!! We CAN DO THIS.”

A day earlier, Holden revealed she was hosting her show from home – and admitted there were a few distractions.

She shared a hilarious clip of her dog licking her face while he sat on her lap, and another of her scrambling to get her headphones on in time for a segment.

Holden later told Jamie Theakston on his show that it had been a bit “distracting” being at home, where things such as parcel deliveries, visits from her pets and requests from her daughter had been going on.

Theakston said if he worked from home, he feared he would waste time perusing Instagram and munching biscuits.

Holden agreed: “If we end up having to do this, I will probably put on a lot of timber being at home!”
