Martin replied to the fan saying: ‘I hope not too, but I have no fever, no cough and still have my sense of taste, so thankfully I think it’s unlikely’.
Another fan pleaded with Martin to get tested for COVID-19 just in case and wrote: ‘Maybe time to get tested before you do any more shows! Hope you feel better soon – you need to rest up.’
As he introduced the show he told Angelica: ‘I’m a little bit under the weather, a bit nauseous, but I’ve got make up on to cover the green!’

‘Came back positive. Wouldn’t hurt to do a test just in case.’
Feeling green: As he introduced the show he told Angelica: ‘I’m a little bit under the weather, a bit nauseous, but I’ve got make up on to cover the green!’
And another wrote: ‘I’ve had it and it started with tiredness, headache, nausea and upset stomach. Then it became a cold after 3 days with a chesty cough.
‘Taste and smell didn’t go until around day 10. Hope it’s not and that you feel better soon, but would get tested now that you can.’

It comes after Martin made a hilarious gaffe during This Morning, when he accidentally appeared in gym gear. He revealed he had ‘mistimed’ his home workout which meant he had to rush into chat on the show while in the casual ensemble.
Dressed in a blue sports top, he said: ‘Apologies about my appearance, I didn’t time my exercise right. I will be dressed properly later.’
Holly Willoughby said that he was ‘doing a Joe Wicks on us’ so that was why he had almost forgotten his appearance on the daytime talk show.
Later on the show, Martin chatted about how people can save money on their energy bills and had changed into a smart white shirt.
