The controversial star revealed that his constant coughing has caused a “detachment” in his eye, leaving his vision compromised.

“28-day Covid update: a new treat – aside from ongoing tedious fatigue & inability to taste wine, all the coughing’s caused a ‘posterior vitreous detachment’ in my left eye,” he said in a tweet.

“So, I’m now seeing weird ghostly cobwebs swimming around. It really is the virus that keeps on giving.”

Fans rushed to respond, with one saying: “This is exactly why I’m terrified of getting it. I know so many people who have been left with debilitating symptoms, and yet so many still deny its existence.”

Meanwhile, a second added: “Sorry to hear that. Covid is nasty. It’s not nice to think how much worse it could’ve been had you not had the two vaccines.”

What is Posterior vitreous detachment?

Posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) is when your vitreous comes away from the retina at the back of your eye.

The vitreous makes up around 80% of the volume of your eye. It fills the interior of your eye and helps to preserve its round shape.

Its detachment can lead to those suffering from PVD seeing small dark spots or shapes, flashing lights and “floaters”.

However, for most sufferers, this tends to last no more than three months.
