They added: “Sleeping really helps your recovery. I’m through my legal isolation period now, having tested positive on the 5th, but I’m continuing to isolate as my temperature isn’t fully down and I’m still tiring so easily…

“You’ll get there. You are young and fit, just rest up. Keep me posted and dm for any advice or if you want to compare notes.”

Waiting on her COVID results

She explained at the time: “Still waiting on our COVID results! Really praying we all just have the flu!!”

The news comes just days after she went to see a live cabaret show with her fiancé Ryan.

The following day she complained of suffering from a severe hangover.

Again taking to Instagram, she posted: “And this is the day after the night before!!! Was in bed by bloody 10.30pm because we just can’t handle our drinks!! I’ve only got to have two and I’m merry!!

“And here comes those famous last words ‘I’m never ever drinking again!’ Well until next Friday when I go watch @mrduncanjames which will be water just to be clear. It’s very very very rare I do drink so I tend to make up for it.”

Her diagnosis means she will have to self-isolate and will be unable to mix across household bubbles over Christmas.
