The agent had been on a business trip in Cancun when he contracted Covid, however it has turned into pneumonia.

His family and friends have been told that if he has any chance of survival, he will have to be induced into a coma and placed on a ventilator for a minimum of 10 days. However they need to raise £100,000 to pay for his treatment.

Stars of the BBC soap and friends of Terry have been donating to try and help raise money for his treatment.

Max Bowden, who plays Ben Mitchell in EastEnders, shared the fundraiser to his Twitter account writing: “Please share and donate. Please.”

Posting on Instagram, the actress said: “Ready for another day with my girls.

“The data we receive each day from the news is so upsetting. I just wanted to say I’m thinking of everyone who has lost someone and thinking of the people whose loved ones are in hospital.

“I’m thinking of people on their own and the doctors and nurses who are dealing with it each day.”

“It’s very easy to sit and moan about not seeing family or not being able to go to a pub for lunch, not being able to go to your gym or have your nails done.

“But it’s really not that bad. Keep going, remember how lucky we are.

“Oh, and be kind when you’re out shopping and stop rushing because it’s driving me mad being walked into or leaned over every bloody time I go out.

“I’m really not going to take the 87 plums on the shelf, just wait patiently two metres away from me. And others. Cheers.”
