Lisa Snowdon has been "wiped out" by her second bout of COVID-19.

The 49-year-old star has contracted coronavirus for the second time, after suffering from the disease last year, and admits that she was left terrified by her symptoms.

Lisa told 'This Morning': "There were a couple of really scary days and nights. On Friday, with my chest and heart, I had a panic attack on top of that and I was really scared.

"I obviously didn’t want to go to hospital because I know there are people so much worse off than me, so that was going to be a last resort. But I did consider it."

The former model has been double vaccinated against the virus but is aware that she is not fully protected from Covid despite being "careful".

Lisa said: “I know that the vaccine isn’t gonna stop us from getting it again. But I’ve just been so careful. I really have been really cautious about wearing masks because I’ve been really cautious about going to events and it’s really baffled me completely."

The star admits that she has "turned a corner" in her battle against coronavirus as her energy has gradually returned.

She told hosts Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond: “I’ve definitely turned a corner. Honestly, I’m dressed, have showered. I’ve washed my hair especially for you. I couldn’t do that a couple of days ago. Energy is coming back slowly, slowly, but it’s absolutely wiped me out.”

Lisa also praised her fiance George Smart – who she described as her "nurse" – for looking after her while she has been ill.

She said: “I’m really lucky that I’ve had somebody to look after me.”
