After the show, he penned on Twitter: "The problem with having your own live TV show, is when you're feeling under the weather as I am right now (nauseous and weak) show must go on. Let's hope Dr. Showbiz helps..."

He added: "At least I'm doing it from home so I can go to bed straight afterwards."

After fans voiced their concerns that he could have "the virus" – Martin even replied to one, saying: "I hope not too, but I have no fever, no cough and still have my sense of taste, so thankfully I think it's unlikely" – he took to Twitter again on Friday to reassure them he was feeling much better after a good night's sleep.

"Thanks to all those who've asked today if I'm feeling better," he wrote. "Yes definitely, much better today, still a tiny bit off colour, but a good night's sleep really helped, and should be totally chipper tomorrow :)."

Needless to say, his followers were overjoyed that he was feeling more like himself, with one commenting: "Good man. Glad to see you're doing better. Your help has been invaluable to millions over the years, and… Well, you're appreciated."
