Has Paul had coronavirus?

Yes, the TV star previously suffered from coronavirus back in March 2020.

The former Blind Date host told BBC London radio: “Last week I had flu-like symptoms. I didn’t have the cough bad. I certainly didn’t have the temperature or anything like that, so I just got on with it.

“That was when the heating had gone so it was minus two down here and freezing and I thought someone had got it in for me. I’m fine now.”

Meanwhile, late last year, Paul pleaded with his fans to not go out on New Year’s Eve.

He also urged his followers not to have large gatherings at their homes – reminding them of the NHS nearing capacity due to rising cases.

He shared: “Eddie’s [his dog] not very happy about being locked in on Tier 4. My cousin is a nurse, all leave is cancelled and she’s working hellish shifts as the COVID cases keep on rising.

“Miserable I know but hard cheese as me Aunty Chris used to say, we’ll just have to bloody well get on with it.”
