Calum Best joins the fight against coronavirus as he helps to unload PPE from cargo planes before delivering them to frontline health workers

Calum Best has joined the fight against coronavirus as he helped to unload personal protective equipment from cargo planes before delivering them to frontline health workers.

The model, 38, looked to be in good spirits while at Robin Hood Airport in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, on Thursday.

The Ex On The Beach star was decked out in a high-vis jacket and black jeans as he hauled medical supplies out of the carrier.

He was joined by Tamer Hassan, whose daughter Belle appeared on ITV’s Love Island, as they helped transport over £30,000 worth of PPE.

Calum was later seen dropping off a box of supplies at The Royal Care Home in Rossington, Doncaster.

The star posed for socially-distanced selfies with a group of nurses who came to the door to collect the delivery.

The pair were working with the Mask Our Heroes charity, which was set up by entrepreneur Matthew McGahan to help supply NHS frontline workers.  

Matthew created the initiative after his father Alan died with Covid-19 earlier this year.

And the charity has since delivered 70,000 pieces of equipment to over 50 different hospitals, care homes, hospices.

It comes after Calum revealed earlier this year that he would be looking for 'alternative' ways to become a father if he had not found love and settled down with a partner in the next two years.

He said he is prepared to take matters into his own hands to guarantee his journey to parenthood because he has 'so much love to give'.

The TV personality - who is the son of late football hero George Best and his model ex-wife Angie - said he doesn't want to leave it too late to have children and has been exploring his options as a single man.

Speaking in this week's issue of New! magazine, the currently-single hunk said: 'I'd be an incredible dad. I have so much love to give. But I'll do it when the time's right. That said, I don't wanna wait too long - I want them soon.

'I want to be an active, cool dad. I've been thinking about it a lot and if I don't find someone I love and want to have babies with in the next two years, then there are alternatives.'

Asked if he meant he'd do it alone, the reality star admitted he would have a child with someone he wasn't in love with or a close female friend, something he had discussed with a couple of his girl pals.  

Although far from the 'traditional happy family', Calum said he believes he would be able to bring up a baby with a friend as a co-parent - adding that most marriages end that way in this day and age.

Calum said he has not given up on falling in love which is his 'main goal' but remains open to the idea of co-parenting, even if the woman involved then went on to start a family with someone else.

Discussing the possibility, he said: 'Yeah that would be tough, but the point there is, in our day and age, marriages aren't lasting long and it's becoming the norm to have blended families.'
