This Morning host Willoughby took part and shared a snap of a broken wooden spoon to Instagram, adding the hashtags #clapforourcarers #nhs.

Strictly Come Dancing host Tess Daly was joined by husband Vernon Kay in applauding workers.

She posted a picture of the couple wearing T-shirts bearing the slogan “thank you NHS”.

Daly said: “While we are staying at home you are risking your lives for us on the frontline. We cannot thank you enough for your bravery hard work and kindness.”

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan said Thursday’s applause was the loudest he had heard so far.

He tweeted: “Loudest clapping/cheering/banging yet in my part of Kensington – so good to hear. THANK YOU to every single one of our brilliant NHS staff & carers. We’re never needed you more.”

Declan Donnelly was also spotted applauding on his doorstep with wife Ali Astall, as was former football manager Harry Redknapp and his wife Sandra.
