She's not the only Loose Women panellist to have suffered with cold and flu symptoms since the seasons have changed, either.

In October, Nadia Sawalha shared that she had been battling with "the lurgy" for a while. She shared a photo on her own Instagram Stories and wrote: "Still feeling rough with this lurgy. First time dressed and out of the house in a week."

Sophie Morgan, meanwhile, was also ill just a few weeks ago. She let her Instagram fans know, writing: "Physically, I'm lying on the sofa with a hideous chest infection, voiceless and snotty. Mentally, I'm in the desert in Morocco, hugging a puppy watching the sunrise. Hate being sick. What's everyone doing this weekend?"

Denise Welch has also been sick recently. In October, she found herself bedridden for five days, and discovered that she had been suffering with chronic bronchitis, while losing her father shortly before also took a toll on her mental health.

Before receiving her diagnosis, she shared details of her illness on Twitter, writing: "So I've been in bed for five days now with this dreadful flu type lurgy that has floored me. Chest infection, sweats, the lot. Doctor sent me for PCR test which was negative, as were two lateral flows but I have zero taste or smell yet not bunged up. Weird. I've had better weeks."
