Dr Alex George has shared the sad reality that he’ll be spending Christmas alone in London following the announcement of Boris Johnson’s ruinous tier 4 rules.
The Love Island star had hoped to reunite with his family in Wales over the festive week as they prepare to spend their first Christmas without Dr Alex’s younger brother Llyr, who tragically died in July.
However, the NHS doctor will now be alone on Christmas Day due to London being plunged into tier 4 which restricts travelling outside the capital.
In a heartfelt Instagram post, Dr Alex explained: ‘Looks like I will be alone in London this Christmas. As hard as it is to swallow and as upsetting as it is for the family, I will do what is necessary. I am going to offer my help to the hospital over Christmas, to look after those who are sick and away from their families at this time.
‘This year has been crap but I refuse to lose hope or despair. I will not let this get me down. I am sending positivity and love to anyone affected by tonights [sic] announcement. Remember. There is always hope of a better day.’
Dr Alex, 30, later shared an Instagram video reassuring followers that he was coping well and sharing an uplifting message to help others struggling with the devastating and strict tier 4 rules.
‘When bad things happen in life or things don’t go your way,’ he began.
‘Getting angry about it or complaining about it, I don’t know, just makes you angry or resentful inside and sometimes, I think it’s best to just take things on the chin and go, this is s**t, this is not a good situation or what I want to be doing but, we just do our best, go with it and just make best of the situation,’ he continued.
Earlier in the day, Dr Alex revealed that one of Llyr’s best friends took part in a charity event, which saw him run four miles every four hours for 48 hours.
‘A very emotional phonecall with @owain148. So proud of you mate. Rest up champion,’ the reality star said.
Dr Alex later added: ‘Sometimes you need a good walk to clear your mind. Positive vibes only.’
Llyr died in July at the age of 19.
Recently opening up about his heartbreaking loss, Dr Alex admitted it was the ‘hardest time of his life’ but the support had been ‘overwhelming’.
