The Prime Minister is currently recovering after testing positive for COVID-19 last week and had been due to leave self-isolation on Friday.

But in a tweeted video message, Mr Johnson said he is remaining in self-isolation with mild symptoms including a raised temperature. 

Mr Johnson and Miss Symonds announced in February they were engaged and were expecting their first child together.

The Prime Minister became the first leader of a major global superpower to announce he had tested positive for coronavirus.

He entered self-isolation at a flat in Downing Street, though the couple normally live together.

On Friday, Mr Johnson posted a video on his Twitter page from the flat in Downing Street to provide an update on his recovery. 

He said: “Although I’m feeling better, and I’ve done my seven days of isolation, alas I still have one of the symptoms, a minor symptom – I still have a temperature.

“So in accordance with Government advice, I must continue that self-isolation until that symptom itself goes.”
