Kate Lawler has revealed she's been told to self-isolate after coming into contact with someone who has coronavirus.
The Big Brother winner, who is currently expecting her first child with her fiancé Martin, who she calls Boj, took to her Instagram account on Wednesday night to share the news.
She posted a picture of herself posing in her bra and knickers and flaunting her growing baby bump as she shared her anxieties with her 219,000 followers.
Kate, 40, said she still can't believe she is pregnant despite there only being five and a half weeks to go before her baby arrives, as she opened up about her "rollercoaster" week.

The mum-to-be wrote: "The past 7 days have been a rollercoaster of emotions starting with a hospital scan last Wednesday, where we were told Boj could come the day before, but when we arrived he wasn't allowed in due to Covid restrictions.
"I then spoke to a consultant via video link on Monday who informed me there is a possibility that Boj won’t be allowed to attend the birth in February.
"This was followed by the lockdown announcement from Boris.

"Now today, we've both been pinged by our NHS test and trace apps saying we've come into contact with somebody who's tested positive for the virus and we both have to self-isolate.
"It's one of those weeks where everything seems to be happening at once I guess and I really am trying to stay positive but it's difficult. "
Kate then sent her love to the women who have been going to their pregnancy scans alone or giving birth without their partner by their side.

She went on: "To be told you can't give birth the way you want to must be heartbreaking.
"I'm hopeful the law won't change if cases/deaths increase over the next five weeks and we'll be allowed to welcome our daughter into the world, together.
"Also fingers crossed, we don't develop symptoms between now and then.
"Sending so much love and thanks for your messages and support over the past few days, I've been overwhelmed by your kindness and apologies if I don't reply to everyone it's just impossible. Xx."
