England's Millie Bright was a guest in this week's Lionesses Coffee Club

England star Millie Bright has paid tribute to her sister and aunt, who have been leading on the frontline during the COVID-19 lockdown.

The Chelsea defender was a guest on the Lionesses Coffee Club this week, when she took the opportunity to toast both her aunt, who is the chief operating officer at the Nightingale Hospital and her sister who is a staff nurse.

Bright and her England room-mate Rachel Daly were the guests of Coffee Club hosts Jill Scott and Karen Bardsley in this week’s edition.

And she ended her appearance on the show by saying: "I'd like to dedicate this one to my auntie and my sister, working on the front line, day in and day out.”

Bright also revealed she’s spent the lockdown at her family home in Derbyshire.


"I've been at my mum and dad's,” she said.

"It's been nice to see the family, but it's weird because even though I've been home, you can't really see anyone.

"I'm home for all this time and I can't even see my nan and grandad or nephews.

"It's hard, I'd normally pop to my nan's for tea and biscuits and now it's just waving through the window.”
