‘The doctor was very clear,’ the presenter recalled in his column. ‘I’d feel under the weather for between five and 14 days and then I’d either get better or I’d have to go to hospital.

‘Where, because I am 60 and fat, and because I’ve smoked half a million cigarettes and had double pneumonia, I’d probably die, on my own, in a lonely plastic tent.’ 

Detailing what happened, Jeremy explained he woke up drenched in sweat, suffered a persistent dry cough and went into isolation.

After batting off questions from friends about who could have given him the virus, he explained that he took himself off to bed with ‘the new Don Winslow book and a bag of kale’ and waited ‘for the Grim Reaper to pop his head round the door’.

The TV legend went on to explain that he was isolating in a small cottage with his girlfriend Lisa Hogan, 46, and her children, and felt unclear about who he was allowed to have any contact with, adding: ‘I’m not going to lie — it was quite scary!’

He went on: ‘With every illness I’ve had, there has always been a sense that medicine and time would eventually ride to the rescue, but with COVID-19 you have to lie there, on your own, knowing that medicine is not on its way and that time is your worst enemy.

On Thursday, Britain’s Covid cases reached their lowest daily total since June 2021, official data.

Just 19,482 new positive tests were recorded by UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) down 40 per cent on the 32,608 recorded last week.

It is the lowest daily figure recorded since June 27, when 14,876 official cases were recorded. But the metric has become much less reliable now that free tests have been scrapped for the majority of Brits.   

Despite the fall in cases, a recording backlog saw the number of deaths recorded today jump by 85 per cent in a week to 646. Fatalities have been fluctuating daily because of delays in reporting.

The number of people dying within 28 days of a positive test on average has been falling week-on-week for the last four days.
