He wrote in his New! column: "If anyone in our household is going to be exposed to the virus it's probably Emily because she works in a hospital, but until we're told otherwise we're just carrying on as normal.

"We have started stocking up on dry and canned food, though. If we do have to self-quarantine, we have a large family to feed and it would be irresponsible for us not to be prepared."

He recently revealed that he wasn't ruling out moving to Australia - where he grew up - with his family in the future, writing in his New! column that doctors are in demand in down under.

Peter subsequently opened up about his reasoning for not making the move, saying: "The simple answer is work, then I had children. I probably would have stayed there otherwise.

"My heart lies with both and UK and Australia, but maybe one day I'll move back Down Under."
