4487534470?profile=RESIZE_400xLast summer, Sophie Passmore sat with a pot of glue and sequins, applying the finishing touches to costumes for ITV's reality show The Masked Singer. She didn't expect that, less than 10 months later, she would be replying to Facebook comments with advice for making a very different kind of mask.

She is one of thousands who have taken it upon themselves to produce cloth masks since the start of the coronavirus outbreak, despite official advice in the UK not to wear them. Requests for masks on social media have been met with offers from keen volunteers. Their destinations range from High Street shops to care homes and even - in one example given to the BBC - a hospital.
