The medic star added: "In the NHS or any other health care system around the world, I know a lot of us like myself are isolating alone and I know that can be not ideal, and lonely even.

"But we’re in it so together and I just wanted to say to anyone that feels that way, you are not alone."

Alex, who is originally from Carmarthen, Wales, studied medicine at Exeter University and is currently working in South East London.
