Television favourite Judge Rinder has discussed his terrifying battle with the coronavirus.
The 41-year-old ITV star, full name Robert Rinder, has spoken about his difficult battle with COVID-19.
In an interview with The Sun, he discussed his “horrific cough and temperature” in the harsh two weeks of isolation.
Despite his lack of a positive test for the virus, Judge Rinder is all but certain that he was suffering from the illness.
He said: “Quite a few people I’ve been with have tested positive so it would be weird to have had a violent temperature, a cough for two weeks and be in delirium.”
Judge Rinder also warned people at home to avoid becoming bathed in the news updates about the ongoing health crisis.
“Of course there are symptoms the human body cannot control,” he noted, “but we also need to be aware of the toll anxiety and stress are making us all feel physically worse…”
He also explained that podcasts and episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians had helped to distract him from his terror and anxiety.
The TV legal mastermind sadly recently revealed that his grandfather, fondly called Pappa Harry, had passed away due to coronavirus at the age of 92.
“He wasn’t ready to go, with trying to stay alive for this documentary I’ve made about his family that was due to be out in May,” added Robert.
The documentary has been delayed for a release in the Autumn.
The star had previously paid tribute to his grandfather in an emotional post on Twitter.
He tweeted: “Pappa Harry. Your beautiful wisdom ‘for every painful story there are a thousand reasons to rejoice,’ is my most precious gift.
“People recover every day & our communities are stronger & more supportive. Bless you for choosing love over despair. RIP.”
Today in the UK, the death toll rose to 5,375, an increase of 441 in 24 hours.
It is unknown how long the UK will need to continue social distancing measures.
British PM Boris Johnson is currently being treated for coronavirus in hospital and is in the Intensive Care Unit at St Thomas’ Hospital, London.
