"Second week working in a Care home. Absolutely love it, and feel right at home," the BAFTA-winning actress shared.

"Lovely bunch of people also."

The mother-of-one also praised her four-year-old daughter Reenie-Rae for understanding that her mother needed to go back to work.

"Reenie understands that I need to go back to work so she has nice things and a pretty home, she waited up for tonight ❤️ back on the grind tomorrow. Stay safe everyone," she wrote.




Followers praised her for the decision to return to the national health service at a time when resources are stretched thin, and she admitted she had worked on and off as a carer since she was 21.

"Thank you. Did it since I was 21," she told one fan, "I will always continue to do it as well".

However, she also opened up on the negative sides of care work, of which many of the country's carers will know about all too well.

"My back is killing me at the moment. It’s so painful," she told one follower who recommended a hot bath and sleep.

The number of NHS workers killed by Covid-19 has reached at least 104 — a rise of 61 in a week.

On Monday, NHS chiefs warned Brits that breaking the lockdown could risk a second coronavirus peak as the UK reported this month's lowest daily death toll of 413.

The warning comes as Covid-19 deaths in the UK hit more than 20,700 and the death toll rose by 413 today.

Positive cases have also risen to 152,840 from 148,377 as Britain prepares to enter week five of drastic lockdown measures.
