The 49-year-old wrote about his concerns on Twitter yesterday (March 22), telling fans: "Although I cant be sure and i cant be tested it seems likely i have Coronavirus .Started social distancing a few days too late. Anyone upsets me; I'll be around to sneeze in your home."

Paul revisited the topic today, as he elaborated: "Btw, as you can imagine I've had a lot of mates. medics or otherwise, in contact. It seems that loads of us may have had it in the last few weeks, but the range of symptoms is very variable.

"The suspicious symptom, for me, is the exhaustion. New territory."

Here's hoping he's back on his feet as soon as possible.

The Chase airs weekdays on ITV.
