Lisa, 48, a regular on This Morning, took to Instagram to update followers on their condition, telling people how important it is to stay at home because symptoms come in 'waves' and even though you think you are well you could be a super-spreader.

She went on to reveal that she felt so 'wiped out' for the first couple of days she could barely get out bed, staying in her pyjamas all day, but has since found showering and getting dressed has made her feel a bit better.

In an Instagram video called "Coronavirus-Isolation Day 4", Lisa explained:

"George started feeling ill on Friday evening, but you kind of have to work out your symptoms yourself.

"There's a checklist of coronavirus symptoms but different people have different symptoms I'm finding.

"George had a fever on Friday and luckily I had a Peppa Pig thermometer in the first aid kit that I bought years ago for the kids.

"I took his temperature and it was raging high, really scary high, and I thought it was flu. He had a headache, he didn't have a cough, he had a fever."

Hi all! Wanted to check in and say hello and to let you all know how George and I have been feeling the last few days. Now, I’m not a doctor and everyone’s symptoms of this virus seem to vary quite a bit, so I wanted to tell how we have been effected. I also wanted to share some things I’ve learnt about dealing with it and what herbal remedies to take and stock up on just in case. Wanted to shout out to Heather ( think I called her Helen 🤦🏻‍♀️) My local fishmongers KC Fisheries. Mus at @woodstock.loughton @benamilne at @bombettalondon Thanks to @pureprkelly at @pureprlondon for sending us a care package full of pamper goodies to see us through this isolation period, to @donnaida and Bobby Dazzler for sending cupcakes and my awesome neighbours Steve and Sophie. What a wonderful little community we are lucky enough to live in. Keep healthy, happy and smiling my friends. OH! And pick up the phone and call people, CONNECT! 🙏🏽

Lisa went on to explain that coronavirus symptoms feel 'quite different' to the flu and likened the fever to the menopause.

She said: "Headaches for us are quite severe. I've got a dry cough, it's a persistent cough. I haven't really had a fever though but because I'm very menopausal I get hot flushes.

Lisa went on to thank the NHS and urged people to stay at home so they don't become super-spreaders (Credit: Instagram)
