Love Island’s Anna Vakili and Malin Andersson among celebs working on the frontline during coronavirus pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic is upon us and the NHS is striving to cope.

With new hospitals popping up across the country, hundreds of thousands of people signing up to be volunteers and many companies doing their bit to support healthcare staff, the one positive that can be drawn is that the crisis is showing the best of human nature.

As part of the effort to flatten the curve, the government is also enlisting the help of many retired healthcare workers who have returned to the front line to assist.

These people also include some celebrities. Let’s take a look at some of the famous faces who are working in the healthcare system to help out.

1. Anna Vakili

Love Island 2019 star Anna worked as a pharmacist before finding stardom in the Majorcan villa. She has returned to work recently, telling fans that “with everything that’s going on it felt wrong not to.”

The stunning brunette posted a photograph of herself back in a pharmacy, wearing a chic camel-coloured suit and a face mask, with a caption that read: "First day back working as a Pharmacist since leaving Love Island. It’s been almost a whole year!

"Wow can’t believe how fast it’s gone. Wasn’t really planning on registering yet but with everything that’s going on it felt wrong not to. We can all fight this together. Stay safe. Stay home. Save lives.”

2. Dr Ranj Singh

TV doctor Dr Ranj Singh lights up our screens giving medical advice on This Morning. However, he is still working as an NHS doctor, and actually specialises in paediatric emergency medicine.

He recently tweeted a photograph of himself at home captioning it: ”Evening shift in A&E… now on-call overnight from home.

"It’s around 4am when I start to go slightly doolally! #NHS #coronavirus #covid19.” [sic] Well done Ranj!

3. Malin Andersson

Love Island beauty Malin Andersson, who recently shared her mental health tips exclusively with OK! Online, has been working as an influencer and body positivity activist since leaving the hit ITV show in 2016.

However, she trained as a carer after a mum’s tragic death from cancer in 2017. After stating on twitter that she couldn’t “sit at home” on her own anymore, last week she went to work and posted: “First shift complete. My heart feels full. So so full”.

4. Rosena Allin-Khan MP

Rosena Allin-Khan has been very busy during the pandemic both running for deputy leader of the Labour Party and also returning to work as a doctor at St George’s Hospital in Tooting.

She has just been announced as Shadow Minister for Mental Heath but is spending her days on the NHS frontline. Legend!

5. Dr Alex George

After leaving Love Island with a loyal legion of social media followers, Dr Alex George could have easily hung up his stethoscope and dedicated his future to becoming a media personality.

However, he continued to work part time in A&E in Lewisham hospital and he has been working really long shifts during this public health crisis.
