She went on to share tips on how to get through the days with no contact from the outside world.

In a video which was titled "Coronavirus-Isolation Day 4", she said: "George started feeling ill on Friday evening, but you kind of have to work out your symptoms yourself.

"There's a checklist of coronavirus symptoms but different people have different symptoms I'm finding.

"George had a fever on Friday and luckily I had a Peppa Pig thermometer in the first aid kit that I bought years ago for the kids.

"I took his temperature and it was raging high, really scary high, and I thought it was flu. He had a headache, he didn't have a cough, he had a fever."

Lisa who is now a regular on This Morning went on to say that the illness was not similar to the standard flu and that the symptoms were different.

She added: "It's really hard to determine what's going on but you know when you've got flu and I think flu feels quite different.

"Headaches for us are quite severe. I've got a dry cough, it's a persistent cough. I haven't really had a fever though but because I'm very menopausal I get hot flushes.

"I was joking with my friend earlier that it was coronapause. A corona/menopause situation. Maybe it's too early to joke about those things."

She initially joked that it was a mixture of coronavirus and the menopause

Celeb pals instantly flooded the comment section, with Gaby Roslin commenting: "Wish you both better my sweet. Sending love."

Lizzie Cundy added: "Thinking of you darling. Love to you both from me."
