Laura Hamilton, 38, who is a firm favourite on A Place In The Sun, spoke out as she chatted with her co-star Jonnie Irwin during an Instagram Live. The Channel 4 regular revealed she was in tears amid the nationwide lockdown as she and her husband Alex Goward continue to support their local community.
The married couple are owners of a restaurant and coffee shop called Lord Roberts On The Green.
Laura said they have continued to deliver takeaway food to people in their area.
The mum-of-two said there was a 98-year-old woman named Dorothy who’d had her in tears because she is isolated and “none of her family members can get to her”.
The property expert revealed that she attempted to capture the moment but had to to delete it because she became overwhelmed with emotion.

“We’ve been selling a lot of cakes and coffees, we’ve still got our takeaway food,” Laura explained.
“Honestly Jonnie, it’s been one of the most rewarding and amazing things being able to deliver and help people in the community.”
She continued: “I actually got really emotional and I said this in one of my stories there’s a customer who is 98 and isolated because none of her family can get to her.
“She can’t do an online shop so I rock up in my little Mini and I deliver to Dorothy.”
The TV star admitted she began to cry as Dorothy’s situation touched her emotionally.
Laura said: “She was just amazing and I got in my car and I did a little story and I had to delete it because I started crying because I was like, wow this is amazing that we’re able to help people.”
