As I'm sure you're well aware, celebrities the world over are currently self-isolating just like the rest of us during the coronavirus crisis.

And while some are enjoying having more free time, others are seriously struggling. Kim Kardashian West, for example, recently revealed that being quarantined with four kids has put her off having any more.

While Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have resorted to extreme measures to provide entertainment for their family — by staging a wedding for their 3-year-old daughter's stuffed animals.

And the latest celebrity to speak about her experience in self-isolation is Queen in the North herself, Sophie Turner.

Speaking during a video interview with Conan O’Brien, Sophie revealed that, for her, quarantine has actually been an ideal situation because she's a natural introvert.

"I'm kind of loving it," she said. "I'm an introvert, I'm a homebody. If I could stay at home all day I would, so this is great for me. I only leave the house once a day to walk my dogs and that's it."

"I see how people are finding it difficult, but I don't understand how people are really struggling to practice social distancing," she added. "All you have to do is stay home and get drunk at home!"

Sophie went on to say she's "loving" not having to get dressed, before revealing she was actually wearing sweatpants for the interview.

"I'm business on the top, party on the bottom," she said while showing off her sweats, before branding anybody wearing denim pants during quarantine a "psychopath".

However, Sophie went on to reveal that, although she's been loving self-isolation, her husband Joe Jonas is finding the whole thing difficult.

"I hear divorce rates are up," Sophie said, "But for Joe and I everything seems to be working out in my favour here. Because Joe's a real social butterfly, so I struggle to lock him down and have him spend time with me. It's prison for him but it's great for me."

But in a bid to make the experience more enjoyable for Joe, Sophie's taken to pouring him shots of tequila whenever he wants.

And when Conan asked whether it had to be past 5pm before she'd serve up the shots, Sophie responded: "Nah. There's no rules in quarantine!"

Please never change, Sophie!
