The One Show has offered an update on co-presenter Matt Baker's health following a difficult few days.

Alex Jones previously shared the alarming news on Friday (March 20) that Baker would not be checking in via video link from self-isolation as usual because he was "really not very well".

Thankfully, there was "some good news" from Jones on Monday's (March 23) episode as she announced that Baker was "back in action" via video from his living room.

"I'm good," Baker assured her with a big smile.

With his lovable dogs on his lap, the presenter updated viewers on his condition: "I'm back in action! I'm just sitting on my sofa with my dogs here. Yeah, feeling a lot better. Thank you, for asking!"

In fact, Baker revealed that he even felt well enough to do some biology, weather and English homework with his two children throughout the day on Monday!

"Things are good," he promised. "I did some art today. I painted a lion — you'll be pleased to hear, Alex... Things are good and spirits are high!"

Baker had previously admitted to viewers last Thursday that he was concerned over whether he had contracted coronavirus because he was feeling significantly worse since entering isolation.

The One Show host first announced on Tuesday, March 17 that he would be going into isolation for "two weeks" on the Prime Minister's advice because someone in his household was feeling unwell.

He was supposed to be replaced on last Friday's episode by former Coronation Street star Kym Marsh, but she also had to cancel at the last minute to go into self-isolation.

The One Show airs Mondays to Fridays on BBC One.
