EastEnders star Louisa Lytton signs up to be an NHS volunteer amid the coronavirus outbreak

Louisa Lytton has said she's signed up to be an NHS volunteer to help the nation's health workers combat the coronavirus.

The EastEnders star, who plays Ruby Allen on the popular soap, is currently isolating with her fiancé Ben Bhanvra and has decided to do something proactive in aid of the NHS.

She took to her Instagram Stories to share the news by posting a photo of herself in grey jogging bottoms paired with fluffy pink slippers.

The 31 year old told her 164,000 followers: "Work out done Comfies on. Back to the car park I go. This will be my spot for the calls I'll be making as an NHS volunteer." [sic]

Volunteers must be over 18 years old, fit, well and healthy, and once they have registered and passed checks they'll be provided a log-in to the GoodSAM Responder app.

As part of their role, they can help deliver shopping to vulnerable people, transport patients to and from the hospital, drive essential medications and equipment to NHS facilities and check up on isolated people by the telephone.

Louisa, who recently confessed she's worried she may have to cancel her wedding, isn't the only TV personality to sign up for the scheme as Love Island star Montana Brown recently revealed she's put her name down, too.

After posing in her bikini in her back garden during a bout of unusually warm weather, Montana explained that she had grown bored and wanted to occupy her time and do what she could to help.

The keen influencer, who recently paid an emotional tribute to Mike Thalassitis one year after his death, also urged others to do the same if they wanted something to do and were struggling in isolation.



Speaking from her sunny back garden, the 25 year old said: "Its a wonderful beautifully morning and people saying they don’t know what to do including myself so I’ve singed up to help the NHS…"

Montana then went on to explain the options that you can do to help: "You can chat to someone who is lonely, someone on their own isolating, you can deliver peoples medication and NHS equipment. something else I can’t remember but its really nice…

"Especially if you have a car or a bike and you’re healthy and not high risk. So let's all join together in matrimony."
