This Morning in Covid chaos as Vanessa Feltz tests positive minutes after filming leaving Phillip Schofield at risk
THIS Morning has been plunged into chaos as Vanessa Feltz has tested positive for coronavirus just minutes after filming.
The shocked broadcaster, 60, revealed her positive test on Instagram after arriving home from London's White City Studios.
The flustered star 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 nit weird, got on the back of the motorbike to come home again, felt slightly queasy, which I never do."
Thinking she might be developing a cold, Vanessa took a lateral flow test and received the dreaded two red lines.
Her followers wished her well and daughter Allegrah commented: "So sorry Mum! Wishing you better! Will send chicken soup if that will help! ❤️❤️."
Guests in the This Morning studio today included Deputy Labour Leader Angela Rayner and Strictly judge Motsi Mabuse.
Last night Vanessa enjoyed a boozy knees up at The London Cabaret Club where she rubbed shoulders with Loose Women's Linda Robson.
This morning she was full of beans as she presented her Radio 2 show with Vernon Kay in a neighbouring studio.
Vanessa's positive test comes just a day after Holly Willoughby made her return to the show following a bout of the illness.
The 41-year-old missed more than a week of the show as well as theDancing On Ice semi-final,
