The presenter posted on instragram: “EVERYTHING IS FINE.

“But yesterday was fraught with anxiety and exhaustion.

“Oldest Female Ungrateful had come home from Uni full of flu-like symptoms and painful chest.

“Wasn’t allowed to go to Dr’s. 111 sent an ambulance to get her (very calmly) and took her to A&E where Corona had to be ruled out in isolation and investigations pursued due to her cardiac defect.

“She was ridiculously brave - despite the distress it was causing her. Finally given the all clear.

“Mamma is so proud and relieved.

“And will be eternally grateful to our amazing #nhs which is always there when you need it and has been saving her life since before she was born.

“(Huge thanks to the 3 wonderful paramedics who treated her with such care and respect. And were sweet with our doggies. I bow to thee).”
