Channel 4 newsreader Jon Snow, 72, took to Twitter to tell fans he is hoping to be back on the programme next week, but insisted no date had been scheduled. The presenter has been in self-isolation for 14 days after a visit to Iran, but has no symptoms of the COVID-19 disease.
In a video today, he told fans: “Hi everyone, I’m still in self-isolation.
“I’m feeling good and I’m hoping to be back on Channel 4 news next week.
“The good news is I’ve been able to get back to trying to write my book, but failing, I’ve organised my tie collection and finessing my dance moves and all that stuff.”
The veteran newsreader went on to test his Twitter followers about a theory inspired by his self-isolation.

He began his tweet, writing: “Such fortitude, such heroism.
“Hang on in there Snowy, we’re all rooting for you as you sit at home, doing no work, with zero sign of anything wrong with you, tweeting these riveting updates.”
