The TV star has been self isolating, in correspondence with government advice as she is over 70.

Opening up to the hosts, she explained how she has been dealing with self-isolating: "I'm fine. Finding it very hard to stop my brain working; so many ideas, so much ahead of me this year creatively and now suddenly it's gone. Cancelled.

"So how am I going to control my energy? That's the hardest thing. I'm keeping fit."

Arlene then went on to say: "The hardest thing for me is that I've talked to my daughters over a machine.

"I play with my granddaughter on a machine. I'm not there to hug them in the flesh. I'm not there to hold them.

"That's very strange for me. I'm very close to my family and see each other all the time. But it's best to do what's safe for everybody. I can't be around them."

Today's episode of Good Morning Britain has been action packed, and also featured a car crash interview with Michael Gove, as well as an appearance from Will.i.am.

Good Morning Britain is on ITV, weekdays at 6am
