The star's fans offered him their best wishes, with many sharing their own experiences of coronavirus.
Holmes is not the only star suffering with COVID – Ed Sheeran has also had to cancel work commitments in the lead-up to his album release after testing positive, and Judi Love recently shared an update from her sickbed after being forced to take a week off Strictly.
A few days ago Holmes, who is married to co-star Ruth Langsford, shared that they would not be spending Christmas together as they both wanted to see their mums on the day, after being kept apart by COVID restrictions last year.
He told Woman And Home: "We have this issue now, in that we’ve got a sea dividing us. We often have a dilemma of whether I go to Belfast, whether Ruth comes with me. But Ruth wants to be with her mum. My mother is 93 this year. It’s easier for us often to be apart."
Langsford added: "I wouldn’t be going to Belfast this year, because I need to be with my mum. It’s about family for me."
The couple were regular Friday show This Morning presenters before being replaced by Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary at the end of last year.
However, they often return as holiday cover and hosted the programme for the entire summer holidays while regular presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were on their annual break.
