HOLLY Willoughby and Phillip Schofield have led the charge of celebrities sending well wishes to children in hospital during the coronavirus lockdown.
Celebs ranging from Little Mix's Jessy Thirwall to trainer Joe Wicks have sent heartwarming messages to sick kids who need cheering up.
They filmed the videos in support of Spread A Smile who usually organise hospital visits for children, but can't do so because of restrictions around the coronavirus.
Phil reassured the sick kids: “These are weird times, but everything will get back on track. We’re thinking about you and sending loads of love.”
Holly ended their sweet message by blowing a kiss to all those watching.
Trainer Joe Wicks sent his message while out on his one form of exercise a day.
He said: “I just wanted to send my love and say you’re amazing, inspiring individuals.”
Little Mix's Jessy Thirwall added: "I just wanted to send this message to let you know I am thinking of you all and you guys lots and lots and lots of love."
Masked Singer presenter Davina McCall said in her video message: “I hope you feel better soon! We will get back on track. Sending you big hugs.”
While Strictly Come Dancing host Claudia Winkleman shared a funny joke with the children.
She said: “I have a joke and need you to be prepared not to laugh.
"It’s my eight-year-old’s favourite: ‘What did the snowman say to the other snowman? Hey, can you smell carrots?’ I’m sorry!”
Lucy Jackson, CEO of Spread a Smile, said: “Even though we can’t visit, it doesn’t mean the smiles have to stop.”
Other celebs to share beautiful messages included, X-Factor's Louisa Johnson, actress Fay Ripley, comedians Paul O'Grady and Paul Zerdin, former Towie star Vas Morgan, Love Island's Eyal Booker, theatre star Lamoi Leon and singing duo Max and Harvey.
