Peter Andre has revealed he’s been forced to wear a mask in his own home amid his Covid-19 diagnosis.
The singer, 47, confirmed earlier this week that he had himself tested positive for coronavirus.
Peter's management confirmed to The Mirror the results of his Covid-19 test but added that he is "coping well".
Peter is now self-isolating away from wife Emily at home as she works as a doctor on the frontline of the NHS.
In a teaser clip for his latest YouTube video, Peter revealed an insight into his family’s current living situation.
“I have figured out a way that I can walk around parts of the house is if I wear a mask,” he told fans, speaking to the camera with a black mask emblazoned with ‘Gino D’Acampo’ and a white hoody pulled up over his head.

“The irony is, I’ve got to self isolate and yet I’m breathing all over Gino D’Acampo.
“No Gino’s a good friend of mine but I’m sure he wouldn’t want me breathing on him right now,” the Mysterious Girl singer joked.
“Thanks for the mask, man,” he signed off, addressing chef Gino directly.
Peter is reportedly "extremely tired and unwell" after contracting the virus.
A source told The Sun : "Peter started feeling unwell a few days ago, but he didn’t suspect that he had Covid, despite feeling extremely tired and unwell.
"But he decided to go for a test to make sure as he started feeling very weak, which is unusual for him and he struggles to breathe sometimes."

The insider added that Peter has "barely been out and has spent most of his time at home with his family."
They continued: "Because Emily is working and the UK is in lockdown, Pete has no option but to look after his four children as normal and isolate away from Emily at home."
"There's no-one else to look after the children and he doesn't want to put anyone else at risk of catching it.
"The whole family are in quarantine now."
NHS doctor Emily has been on the frontline against coronavirus since the pandemic's beginning, and tested positive for Covid back in July.

She was forced to isolate herself within their home, recalling after she'd recovered: "I was only able to wave at them from the top of the stairs. Myself and Pete also slept in separate bedrooms just to be on the safe side.
"It was horrible but the family adapted to it really well and I got a big hug at the end. I had a sore throat and lost my sense of smell and taste for a week."
The news of Pete's Covid battle came as the UK recorded its highest ever daily rise in positive cases and deaths.
