Paul Sinha suspects he has coronavirus and began self-isolating too late

The Chase star says exhaustion has caused his coronavirus fears

Paul Sinha has told his social media followers that he may have coronavirus - and admitted that he'd started social distancing a few days too late.

The Chase's Sinnerman shared on Twitter on Sunday night: "Although I can't be sure and I can't be tested it seems likely I have coronavirus."

"Started social distancing a few days too late. Anyone upsets me; I'll be around to sneeze in your home."

He later added that he can't recall having been in close contact with anyone other than his husband, Olly, since March 10.

The ITV fave said: "Since then I don't think i've been within coughing distance of anyone. I cant remember the last time i saw anyone who wasn't my husband."

Paul - who was diagnosed with Parkinson's last June -  then explained that he had been feeling exhausted, and this is what led to him thinking it could be coronavirus.

He wrote: "It seems that loads of us may have had it in the last few weeks, but the range of symptoms is very variable. The suspicious symptom, for me, is the exhaustion. New territory."

Paul joins a growing number of celebrities who think they are displaying coronavirus symptoms.

On Friday evening former breakfast TV presenter Fiona Phillips announced that she has the deadly bug.

Her husband, Martin Frizell, boss of This Morning, is now self-isolating, reportedly leaving hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield concerned.

Luther actor Idris Elba also confirmed that he had tested positive for COVID-19.

Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson were both struck down while the Hollywood legend was filming in Australia.

Current NHS advice for anyone experiencing coronavirus symptoms such as a high temperature or a dry cough is to stay completely at home.
