The football pundit said he was looking after their youngest Beau, while their 15-year-old Charley, who they affectionally call "Chazza" was with his mum and "doing homework hopefully."

He said of looking after Beau, 11: "He's been really good he's been doing loads of homework."

And cheeky Jack replied in front of their fans: "I'd give Beau a lesson. I could do Birds and the Bees. Maybe not on Instagram live?"

Jamie and Louise filed for a Decree Nisi, officially ending their marriage, in December 2017.

What can I do during the lockdown?

Q. Can I go to the shops?

A. You will be allowed out once a day to get “basic necessities” like food and medicine. All other non-essential shops will be shut anyway.

Food deliveries and other online shopping will go ahead as normal, Boris said tonight.

Shops that can stay open are supermarkets, pharmacies, vets, pet shops, hardware stores, retail shops in hospitals, newsagents, petrol stations, banks, post offices, laundrettes and undertakers.

Q. Can I still go to work?

A. Yes but only if it is absolutely essential, and the work cannot be done at home.

Travel on roads, trains and buses has been banned, unless it’s essential to get to work.

Q. Will I need an ID or proof of what I'm doing outside of my home?

A. It’s not yet clear. In France and other countries where similar lockdown are enforce people have to carry out forms detailing why they are out of the house.

The PM didn't mention this in his press statement.

Q. Can the police arrest me or fine me?

A. Yes. On Thursday police will have the power to fine you up to £1000 and even force you into self-isolation if they suspect you from being ill.

New fines are also set to be put in place of £30 for refusing to obey the new measures to stay indoors.

Q. Can I have a picnic in the park?

A. No. Gatherings of more than two people outside of a household have been banned.

You will be able to jog, go for a walk or bike-ride in a park once a day.

You won't be able to go to the playground or a public gym, however, as these will be shut down.  Parks will remain open.

Q: Can I get an MOT?

Garages are open for key workes to get essential repairs, including MOTs.

If you do not need your car to get to an essential job, or take care of a vulnerable relative, you should not be driving.

Q: Can I get an emergency repair done to my boiler or electrics?

Yes, but only if it's an emergency and essential to your home or safety.

Any check ups or maintenence appointments should be cancelled.

Anyone coming to your home should stay 2m away.

Q: Should I move house if I'm planning to?

If you can, stay in your home.

Gove said this morning if it's possible to put pause on your move, do so, but accepted there will be situations where people have to move house.

Q. Can I go to a Church, Mosque or Synagogue or other place of worship?

A. No. All religious gatherings, including weddings have been banned.

Only Funerals will be able to take place – and only immediate family members will be allowed to attend.

The rules around parenting children during the coronavirus lockdown came into question on Good Morning Britain last week.

Cabinet minister Michael Gove told Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid on Good Morning Britain last week: "You should not be moving children from home to home."

But minutes later on BBC News he was forced to correct the record and clarify that kids would be able to see both parents.

He said: "On a previous broadcast on Good Morning Britain, I stressed where possible, this should be kept to a minimum.

"It is the case that children under the age of 18 can see both parents. I was not clear earlier."

And Mr Gove later tweeted: "To confirm – while children should not normally be moving between households, we recognise that this may be necessary when children who are under 18 move between separated parents. This is permissible & has been made clear in the guidance."

But already Piers Morgan had blasted the minister for "making up policy on live TV".

He said it was "totally unacceptable" that Mr Gove couldn't confirm the right advice on air to millions of Good Morning Britain viewers.
