The singer first spoke about her concerns for the father during the first UK lockdown in March 2020.
He said he regularly ignores his doctor’s advice and still goes to work because he enjoys being active but he described it as ‘not good’.
Keith told The Sun: ‘My father is not good at the moment, so he thinks to himself but even if he is not well, my father would still get up and go to work.
‘He had been stranded at home for a few weeks before the epidemic and he was starting to get mad with the extra weeks of infectious disease.
‘I think he’s coming out of the house and looking forward to the walk, you know. He’s been telling me for years that he’s 69 years old, so I don’t think he’s telling me the truth anymore. He’s definitely crossing 70’s. ‘
