Dr Ranj has been incredibly busy of late, advising viewers and followers during the pandemic. Most recently, the 40-year-old shared a guide about face masks and coverings, explaining what the latest guidance is ahead of its mandatory use next week.

Back in April, the doctor also touched upon a mysterious new illness which can affect children amid the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. Speaking on This Morning, Dr Ranj highlighted to viewers the worrying symptoms parents should be looking out for.

"On the surface, this alert would seem quite scary, but we've got to put it into perspective," he explained. "What we've seen over the last few weeks is a number of children that have been admitted to hospital, some of which have ended up in intensive care with a certain pattern of illness, which is a little bit worrying."

On whether it is linked to coronavirus, the former Strictly star said: "Some of them have tested positive for coronavirus and some of them haven't. And this alert went out to healthcare professionals to ask them to be extra vigilant, just in case we were seeing something new emerging."
