Latest coronavirus news, updates and advice
Another member of the ITV family has also been closely affected by the virus as Judge Rinder disclosed on This Morning on Friday that his grandfather had died of the virus.
He told the ITV show’s hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford: “The thing is that he survived the Second World War and he was a man that determined and conspired to see joy in the world.
“As much as there is terrible and appalling news out there, we also as a community, as neighbours, as a country, need to remember that there are thousands of people who are recovering from this disease every single day. That our police are doing their very best, our frontline workers are too and that we as a nation are responding positively.
“That’s absolutely the message that I know that he would have wanted to share.”
