Dean Rowland, 35, took to Instagram to tell fans he had suffered with the “flu” and has now been tested for the coronavirus. Harry Derbridge’s fiancé posted a picture of himself wearing a facemask at Basildon University Hospital in Essex.
In his first post, he wrote: “Let’s hope I only bring a tan back from Thailand and not Corona.”
He followed up his post, writing: “I’ve basically been really ill with flu the last few days and as I have recently visited Thailand my doctors thought it would be best that I am tested for Coronavirus.”
He went on to say that tests for the virus have been done and he is currently in isolation for the “next few days” as he waits for his results.
