Laura Hamilton discusses struggle of teaching children at home
Laura Hamilton spoke candidly about her frustrations at being separated from her parents during Christmas and New Year, due to the lockdown restrictions imposed by the UK government amid the coronavirus pandemic. The Channel 4 presenter admitted feeling “gutted” as she also addressed her family loss.
The 38-year-old spent the festive holidays with her husband Alex Goward and the couple’s two children; seven-year-old Rocco and five-year-old Thalia.
Laura explained that it would have been the first Christmas she would have spent with her parents in over a decade.
It comes after the property expert previously opened up about the loss of her grandad, who sadly died while she was away with her husband and children in August.
Laura said: “It was quiet. Not much mess anywhere but was as good as anyone else’s really.

“I was sad not getting to see my parents, because I haven’t spent Christmas with them in about 10 years.
“It was the first year we were going to do it and unfortunately we couldn’t.”
She added: “They were gutted and I was gutted.”
The TV star addressed her family loss which she explained made the current situation even more emotional.
“My grandad passed away in the summer and that was even more upsetting,” Laura confessed.
“My nan was there with [my parents]. It was just the three of them as she’s in their support bubble. It was quite sad for that reason.”
She added: “But I’m not alone. I’m not the only person who has lost people this year.”
Laura had previously taken to Instagram and shared a candid tribute to her late grandad last year.

Meanwhile, the mum-of-two also addressed coping with lockdown for the third time as A Place In The Sun currently halts filming.
The small-screen star confessed that the experience was more challenging this time around as she is currently taking part in Dry January.
Dry January sees many voluntarily stop drinking alcohol after the excesses of December and start the new year on a clearer, and more refreshed healthy note.
Laura explained: “Every morning I get up and try to do a 30-minute workout.
“Of course we’ve got the kids and home-schooling but I find I have to get up and get my fitness in. You know, get set and ready for the day.”
She continued: “Otherwise you fall into that trap where you don’t bother getting dressed or showering.
“I’m trying to do Dry January at the same bl***y time.”
A Place In The Sun airs weekdays on Channel 4 at 3pm.
