Jack has been self-isolating

Thankfully it looks like Jack's parents avoided contracting the virus and Jack self-isolated for the duration of his illness.

'I had to be so careful, and was really careful not to leave the house, and to follow the guidelines in the right way.'

Jack went on to say, 'I realise that a lot of people would have been going through that, and a lot of people are experiencing this right now, and how scared they must be.'

'That feeling that you could give it to someone you love is totally overwhelming.'
