She continued: "Thankfully symptoms improved shortly after and my loved ones are not displaying any signs of the virus. I will continue to follow government guidelines and in the meantime, I am sending masses of love to you all, especially those on the front line.

"I am aware what a privilege it is to be able to access tests privately, so I have donated some to friends working for the @NHS. I feel relieved having consulted my GP who has confirmed it is safe to see my daughter again. Happy to answer questions on symptoms or give info on what I did to boost my immune system when I felt at my worst."
