The ITV star broke the news he had come down with a symptom of the deadly illness on Sunday on Twitter.
He posted the highly-anticipated update: “UPDATE: My COVID-19 test was negative. I was advised to take the test by my doctor after developing possible coronavirus symptoms, and was entitled to do so as a Govt-designated essential worker. I’ll be back on @GMB as soon as my doctor advises I’m OK to return to work.”
He was was replaced by Ben Shepherd on GMB on Monday morning as he awaited his results.
But it’s good news for the outspoken presenter and his family, and Dan took the time to send his support.
“Glad you’re ok. Hopefully see you back soon,” he replied.
