The presenter took to Instagram to share what she's found to be the "worst thing," explaining: "If you ask me, one of the worst things about having Covid, I would say, is having to leave poor old Ben to do all the cooking every single night. I just feel absolutely terrible about it. Really, I can't wait to get back in the kitchen."

Vanessa tested positive for Covid last Thursday and on Monday night shared an update with her followers, explaining: "I have felt a heck of a lot better all day, been really perky and chirpy, but I feel wiped out in the evening. I don't feel ill, just really, really, really knackered and it's only 9:15.

Vanessa Feltz tested negative on Tuesday

"To be scrupulously honest about how it's all going, I feel fab during the day and by this time of night, absolutely finished."

Luckily for the BBC Radio 2 presenter, she tested negative on Tuesday morning. In a clip filmed by Ben, Vanessa charges into the room, shouting: "Guess what! I've got great news, I've got a negative test, so I can go back to work on Thursday."

She also shared she can smell her perfume again - fabulous news all around!
