Peter Crouch says wife Abbey Clancy is stockpiling food over coronavirus fears

Peter Crouch says his wife Abbey Clancy has stocked up on tinned food and protective masks over coronavirus fears.

The former Liverpool, Spurs and England ace revealed the couple are ready for a doomsday scenario if a huge outbreak strikes.

But he admitted he and model Abbey, 34, haven’t gone as far as preparing their own bunker yet.

Crouchy, 39, said: "Abs prepared recently, in light of recent events.

“She has bought more tinned food than usual – and that's not even a joke.

"She texted me just saying, 'I've loaded up, just in case'. She's bulk-buyed.

"We are ready. We've got most of the stuff you need.”

He added: "I don't know where we'd go, we haven't got a bunker or anything.

"Yes, we have our own masks. Is that not a normal thing?

"I don't know the ins and outs of it, I don't know how bad the threat is, but you know, it's better to be safe than sorry.”

The former striker recently revealed the couple used VAR at their son Johnny’s birthday party to avoid tantrums during pass the parcel.

He reckons the video assistant referee is perfect for children’s parties, despite coming in for heavy criticism since its introduction to the Premier League.

Crouchy said: “I think there should be winners and losers.

"It doesn't matter what age you are really – it's a tough industry out there, it's a tough world.

"There's winners and losers in every game.

“For pass the parcel, this is an amazing thing, we actually went to VAR at a couple of points for games like that because you can clear it up for the kid.

"You can go: 'Look, that was passed on.'"

He added: “What we did was we reverted to the screen so everyone could see it in the house.

"We've proved that it can be done and be enforced correctly.

"People should bring it in for parties."
