In lockdown: Get fit with the best online workouts

Across the country, people are using their time at home to get fit by doing online workouts in their living rooms. But with so many options to choose from, it’s hard to know where to start!

We've rounded up the best fitness classes around and asked Alice Beer to put them to the test, from training with heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, to a gentle yoga workout.

They also have a series of videos - including a belly dancing class.

How to avoid the coronavirus scammers

From fake police fines to con-artists impersonating doctors, the pandemic has brought more than just a virus, as opportunistic scammers get to work.

Alice Beer has some top tips on protecting you, and your family, from these increasingly sophisticated scams.

ALICE'S TOP TIPS

- Do not be rushed into making a decision. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is. Only purchase goods from legitimate retailers and take a moment to think before parting with money or personal information.

- Do not assume everyone is genuine. It is okay to reject, refuse or ignore any requests. Only criminals will try to rush or panic you.

- If someone claims to represent a charity, ask them for ID

- Be suspicious of requests for money up front

- If someone attempts to pressurise you into accepting a service they are unlikely to be genuine

- Check with family and friends before accepting offers of help if you are unsure

The Nightingale Hospital needs your pictures! 🎨

The new NHS Nightingale Hospital opens today, and they want your little ones to decorate the walls of the hospital's wellbeing area - that's the area where the doctors, nurses and all the other hardworking staff go to have a well-earned break during their shift.

So if you have artistic children who would like the chance to say thank you to the NHS, we would love them to draw or paint picture of the doctors and nurses hard at work helping people. They can decorate it with rainbows and messages of thanks and support.

The brighter and more colourful the better - and make sure you add your child's name and age to the picture!

How to get involved

Take a photo of your child's artwork on your phone - JUST the artwork, NOT your child, filling the frame of the photo, and upload it to our app.

Tap Get Involved and select the drop-down category Pictures for Nightingale.

We need the pictures by midday on Friday 10 April.

Millions of us - and self-isolating PM - #clapforNHS

Prime Minister Boris Johnson emerged from self-isolation to join people around the UK applauding key workers on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic.

This is the second time the nationwide salute has taken place, as people stood on their doorsteps to applaud those working to stem the outbreak of Covid-19.

Bagpipers took to the streets in Scotland, while families, including Eamonn and Ruth, banged pans and fireworks were let off around the country.

Mr Johnson appeared briefly on the steps of Number 10 to join in, the first time he has been seen in person since announcing he had been diagnosed with Covid-19 last week.

He told those gathered outside: "I am not allowed out really, I am just standing here."

The Queen's second residence Windsor Castle was also lit blue in a sign of support.

More than 70 stars of the stage, screen and sports field have joined forces to thank the NHS in a series of videos shared on Twitter.

Sir Paul McCartney, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Daniel Craig, Stormzy and Ricky Gervais were among those showing solidarity with frontline staff.

From David Beckham to Kylie Minogue and Sir Elton John, the stars filmed themselves saying thank you to healthcare workers.

Bagpipers across Scotland also performed a tune to show their appreciation for key workers, while Nicola Sturgeon and the Scottish government gathered on the steps of Holyrood.

Meanwhile, emergency services personnel sounded their sirens to show their appreciation.

The first Clap For Carers took place on Thursday, March 26 and is expected to continue on a weekly basis.

ITV paused its programming as part of the tribute.
