COMEDIAN John Bishop has revealed he’s been struck down with coronavirus, calling it “the worst illness I have ever had”.
The 54-year-old star said he was diagnosed with the disease on Christmas Day, explaining that it “flattened” him and wife Melanie.
He shared a picture of a notification he had received from the NHS alerting him to his positive test.
John wrote: “This came through on Christmas Day. This is the worst illness I have ever had, debilitating headaches, muscle joint and even skin pain, dizziness, nausea, no appetite, incredibly chronic fatigue.
“My wife and I are fit non smokers and it’s flattened us. I don’t wish this on anyone.”
He added in a slightly different post on Instagram: “I know statistics suggest a 99.9% survival rate but that doesn’t mean I would wish this experience on anyone. Keep Safe.”
The notice, which bore his name and date of birth, showed he went for a test on Christmas Eve.
John quickly received messages from celebrity pals including Jamie Redknapp, who wrote: “Hope all ok bish ❤️.”
Football host Gabby Logan added: “So sorry to hear this JB loads of love from the Logans ❤️.”
