She continued: "Lots of people with ITP have reached out to me with concerns. I want to reassure you I am fine, and if you are an ITP sufferer just get some medical advice before you have the vaccine.

"I'm glad I've now had my second jab to protect myself and well as others. As always, the NHS are, and have been AMAZING!"

She then announced her social media break, by writing: "I've decided to have a social detox and am taking a little break from social media for a while… Sending lots of love and well wishes! Laura xxx."

The 39-year-old's message comes just hours after the presenter revealed her A&E ordeal with fans.

"Was supposed to be @corinthialondon for a Breast Cancer Afternoon Tea… instead I'm in A&E after a reaction to the second covid jab!" she wrote alongside a picture of herself in the waiting room.

The mother-of-two was diagnosed with ITP – Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura – a rare autoimmune disease, following the birth of her daughter in 2015. The blood condition is characterised by a decrease in the number of platelets and leads to excessive bruising.
