Boris Johnson appoints Love Island’s Dr Alex George as Youth Mental Health Ambassador to help get kids through Covid


BORIS Johnson has appointed Love Island’s Dr Alex George as a Youth Mental Health Ambassador, with the A&E doc helping kids get through the Covid crisis.

But while the PM praised the work of the influencer, agents representing dozens of others have demanded a meeting to ask ministers to stop laying into them.

Dr Alex – who was booted out of Love Island without finding love – will play an important role in shaping children’s mental health education and support in school, which is part of Government plans to build back after the pandemic.

He will use his clinical expertise and personal experience to help shape policy on improving support for young people.

The PM said: “Children and young people have heroically adapted to save lives and protect our NHS. This has understandably had a huge impact on their mental health, so I want to shine a spotlight on this vital issue ahead of their return to school.

“I’m delighted that Dr. Alex George will be working with us as we do everything in our power to improve people’s mental wellbeing.”

Dr Alex added: “The last year has been unimaginably difficult for all of us, but particularly for young people who have sacrificed so much.

“I am honoured to be appointed for this role where I’ll be working closely with government to make mental health an absolute priority and hope to have a positive impact on the lives of young people and their education for good.

“Right now young people need a voice in government, and I hope that through this role I can advocate for meaningful change in this area.” It comes as moaning reps wanted to point out that they’re not all bad – and to get ministers off their back.

But Home Office officials have snubbed the chance for the sit down after weeks of laying into bikini clad stars in beaches during lockdown.

Home Secretary Ms Patel blasted them for “showing off” while Cabinet Minister Michael Gove also blasted them for going away to boost their Instagram following.
