Kym Marsh will be missing from Morning Live this week after falling sick with coronavirus alongside her entire family.

The TV presenter was replaced by Janette Manrara on today’s episode, where Gethin Jones explained that Kym had tested positive for Covid.

She had already been isolating at her Warrington home with her children afterson David, 26, tested positive for the virus last week.

But unfortunately, despite taking as many precautions as they could, with David isolating in his room away from the rest of the family, Kym and 10-year-old daughter Polly have now fallen sick.

Speaking via videolink from her home, Kym said: “The whole household went down like dominoes. It's quite amazing for us because obviously as soon as we found out David had Covid, we took all the advice, he went and isolated in his room.

“We didn't have contact with him apart from obviously I was taking him food and drink because obviously he needs to eat and drink, and wearing masks and hand washing, and we still all managed to get it. So it's amazing how transmittable it still is.”

She added that, despite it being reported that children don’t suffer as badly from the symptoms, her daughter was particularly struggling after having a bad fever.

The diagnosis has been just one of the latest health issues for Kym, who had previously fallen ill before David got sick, though it wasn’t because of coronavirus.

She’s also sadly been dealing with her father’s devastating cancer diagnosis.

Kym sharedher father Dave's incurable prostate cancerdiagnosis with OK!, stating that the cancer has spread to his bones.

While his cancer is incurable, Dave is determinedto walk his daughter down the aisle on her wedding daylater this year.
