Love Island star Alex George’s girlfriend Amelia Bath posts sweet tribute to doctor

Dr Alex George’s girlfriend has said she is ‘so proud’ of her boyfriend as he works on the frontline amid the coronavirus crisis.

The couple have been separated by the global pandemic, with the dancer returning home to Dorset a week ago, while Alex stays in London to work at Lewisham Hospital, where he is an A&E doctor.

Posting on Instagram on Wednesday Amelia, who previously appeared on reality show Ibiza Weekender, said she was ‘endlessly grateful for all the NHS staff’.

Sharing a throwback photo showing the couple’s shadows on a beach, Amelia wrote: ‘This afternoon I painted a mirror in the sunshine whilst drinking wine and listening to the Beach Boys’. 

‘Meanwhile, Alex ran around Lewisham hospital treating Covid-19 patients. I’m so proud of him and I’m endlessly grateful for all the NHS staff and key workers who are working tirelessly during such uncertain times.’

Amelia has been sharing updates from her self isolation in Dorset, including bikini snaps, all of which her besotted beau has responded to with his signature Love Island phrase ‘hell’. 

The couple started dating Christmas 2018 after meeting in a bar, following Alex’s failed attempt at finding love on the 2018 series of Love Island.

Dr Alex has been providing updates on life in the NHS during the global crisis, posting advice on his social media pages and giving interviews.  

A week ago the doctor said in an update that staff at hospitals were working seven days a week and the ‘pressure is on’ if more people had to be admitted to wards. 

Alex told The Sun: ‘I’ve been testing around eight patients a shift – and the NHS can easily cope with that level, but if we start seeing 50 or 60 a day, the pressure will be on.

‘The protective gear we have to wear at the moment adds to the queues at A&E.

‘Before seeing each patient I have to put on a gown, fit a mask and visor and double glove as well as the thorough hand-washing routine.’

Dr Alex went on to say the NHS ‘simply couldn’t cope’ if four in five people got COVID-19, but could if it was one in five. 

The former reality star said there is only one isolation room for infectious diseases at the hospital he works at with only one bed in it. If the number cases of coronavirus rises, they will have to quarantine entire wards.

The doctor has also urged the NHS to provide complimentary car parking to all staff during the global coronavirus pandemic. 

With over 20,000 extra employees being called to help the fight against COVID-19, the Love Island star has called for ‘hospital car parks to be free’, as a worker’s vehicle was clamped after they were forced to park at their local leisure centre.

The media personality wrote on Twitter on Sunday evening: ‘Controversial but maybe this is a good time for hospital car parks to be free for NHS staff? Retweet if you agree.

Dr Alex returned to his job as a doctor five months after appearing on the 2018 series of popular ITV2 dating show Love Island. 

Posting on Instagram in November 2018, he explained: ‘Love Island was the experience of a lifetime, but ever since I left the villa I’ve genuinely missed working for the NHS.

‘That’s why this week, I’m going back to A&E. I trained for years for the opportunity to help people, and I can’t wait to get back to doing what I love.’
