She posted on social media today: "Day seven of family self isolating after the toddler got a cough. Day three of me feeling really unwell. I can’t climb the stairs without wheezing. No matter how much I sleep I still feel tired. Whatever germs the toddler brought into our home it’s worse than a cold."

She urged people to stay indoors to prevent possible further spreading of the virus.

As people took to Twitter to offer their support, she added: "The toddler has bounced back like they always do. It makes looking after him all the more difficult."
