Peter Crouch and Abbey Clancy have revealed trying to get to grips with homeschooling has led to “complete chaos” in their home.

Schools being closed since March due to the coronavirus pandemic has meant many have had to get to grips with trying to impart knowledge on their offspring to varying degrees of success.

And former Premier League goalscorer Crouch and wife Clancy have admitted they are facing the same problems the rest of the country is - saying their four children have become “feral”.

The pair have said it’s been “tough” parenting four kids in lockdown, with two of them being school age and needing lessons at home.

Though it appears to have started out smoothly for the Crouches, things have now taken a turn.

Talking during a livestream with Love Magazine, he said: “I enjoyed home-schooling at first. I’m over it now.”

Talking of their children, Clancy added: “They say: ‘You’re not my teacher.’

"It’s so cheeky. Liberty is four, Sophia’s nine, and there’s two babies running feral around the house while we try to do the schoolwork.”

The couple also have two sons, two-year-old Johnny and Jack born last June.

Despite the strain caused by lockdown and attempting to educate their children, the pair reveal they are at least managing to get along with each other.

Clancy said: “In seven weeks we haven’t had one argument.”

Crouch retired from football last summer after hugely successful career which saw him score goals for Premier League sides Stoke City, Tottenham and Liverpool amongst others. He is remembered for his gangly 6’7 frame and iconic robot dance goal celebrations.
