Mark Sr looked well in a blue jacket and jogging bottoms as he hung bags of groceries over Mark’s iron railings ready for him to collect.
Radio host Mark Jr came outside in a smart shirt, shorts and flip flops and took the items back indoors.
He is currently self-isolating with wife Michelle Keegan after 11 members of the Crawly squad tested positive with Covid.

His agent Jonathan Shalit confirmed to SunSport: “Mark is of course following all guidelines.
“Consequently he has had to postpone his daily BBC 2 fitness show, Workout the Wright Way, by a week, which was due to start next Monday.
“Also will be broadcasting his daily Heart evening radio show from home, which he did last night until, he is allowed out.”
The 34-year-old made his professional football debut earlier this month for Crawley when he came on as a late sub in the stunning 3-0 FA Cup win against Premier League Leeds.

It meant he had finally realised his dream of playing professional football at the age of 33.
Mark was in the Spurs academy, captained the youth team and played alongside Jamie Redknapp in the reserves.
Now, 15 years later he has laced back up the boots for some League Two action.
Earlier this month Wright revealed how his family had been living their own Covid nightmare.
His father Mark Snr, mother Carol and two uncles had all contracted the virus in what he described as ‘the scariest week of my life’ over New Year.
Wright explained how his dad ‘wasn’t the same mentally’ while one of his uncles remains in hospital.
