Declan Donnelly and wife Ali Astall take break from self-isolation to walk dog

Declan Donnelly and his wife Ali Astall have been spotted walking their dog Rocky in west London.

The pair were evidently taking a break from self-isolation to take the one form of exercise a day permitted by the government amid the coronavirus crisis.

Lovely day for it!

I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! presenter Dec married Ali in 2015.

Together they share a one-year-old daughter, Isla.

Dec’s outing follows news that the live final of his and presenting partner Ant McPartlin’s ITV show Saturday Night Takeaway this Saturday has been axed because of the virus.

Yep, the virus is impacting the world of TV too.
