Perrie Edwards has spoken about life in self-isolation with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and joked she is close to destroying his Playstation.
Liverpool’s Melwood training base is on lockdown with only injured players reporting for duty, but the first team are set to resume team training sessions next week via video link.
Each member of the squad has been given a tailored plan to be carried out in home gyms and gardens, but the squad is set to be reunited over video link next week, according to the Daily Star.
Speaking to Kiss radio, via the Liverpool Echo Perrie spoke about being holed up in the capital: “I have a house – well, my boyfriend and I have a house in Manchester and a house in London, so we were originally in Manchester together and then we decided to come to London.
“I kind of wish we’d stayed in Manchester rather than London ‘cos there’s more to do there, like in his house.
“But we have got a lovely house in London with a little garden so Hatchi’s alright. It’s just weird, isn’t it? Not being able to leave the house, because I have been isolating for ages now.”
Asked what she has been up to while of precautionary self-isolation, Perrie said: “I haven’t been doing any exercise! I’ve been watching loads of Netflix, I started Money Heist which is unreal.
“I’ve been knitting – I knitted a blanket because I’m a granny.
“I’ve been singing a little bit, I’ve been cooking a lot because my boyfriend is never full, like try isolating with an athlete!
“Trying to ration your food and every five seconds ‘I’m hungry! I’m hungry again. Can I have some food now?’ I’m like, seriously?
“I’ve been baking, which I never do. I baked a banana bread cake the other day.
“It’s the best cake nobody will ever be able to taste. We were FaceTiming all our family like ‘if only you could taste this right now’.#
Asked if the pair had had any rows during isolation. The 26-year-old replied: “I’m probably this close to burning, or just cutting straight through the wire of the PlayStation.
“There’s going to be a situation here.
“Honestly, even just sat in the lounge trying to Netflix and chill there’s just ‘It’s behind you mate behind you urghhh’.
“I’m like ‘Stop with the PlayStation for two seconds!'”
