Taking to Instagram about her symptoms, she said: "Well it is, gosh. I've got Covid so I don't really know what to say, it's a bit of a shock really. I feel OK, I just did This Morning and then I gave a right cough while I was on the telly and I thought that's a bit weird, got on the back of the motorbike to come home again, felt slightly queasy, which I never do."

On Friday morning the presenter shared an update on her symptoms from bed.
