The presenter took to Instagram on Saturday to share she'd lost her sense of smell, telling her followers: "I tested positive on Thursday. It’s now Saturday evening and just suddenly I can't smell anything. Nothing! My favourite perfume? Absolutely nothing! Big jar of coffee? Nothing! Has anyone else had exactly the same, lost their smell completely on day three? I thought because I could smell things yesterday I was going to be able to keep on smelling things."

The Radio 2 presenter added that her sense of taste is going too, explaining: "A tiny bit remains, I can sort of kind of, but not really [taste]. Has anyone else, with no warning, had their sense of smell completely disappear?"

Vanessa also took to Instagram stories on Sunday night to update her fans on her health, explaining: "I definitely feel much better today. Much less feverish, much less shivery. I still can't smell or taste anything but I don't feel so awful. I realised I felt better when I wanted to test negative to go back to work."

Sadly the radio presenter still tested positive on Monday morning so was unable to host her show on Radio 2, writing: "Want to be back in radioland. Missing my lovely listeners."
