She added: "Never felt so poorly in all my life!! Those who think this isn’t real, think again!! Absolutely heartbroken! Sending love and light to all those effected [sic]."

Kerry added that fiancé Ryan Mahoney has also tested positive

“Both Ryan and I are held up in the bedroom,” she added. “My poor children. I honestly don’t know what to do. For all those who think Covid isn’t real, think again!'

Kerry will have to spend the festive season at home without seeing any of her loved ones as rules state anyone with symptoms must isolate for 10 days after those symptoms start.

The mum-of-five has four of her kids living at home, with eldest daughter Molly staying in Ireland as she attends university in Dublin.

The star admitted in her new! magazine column how hard it would be spending Christmas without her eldest.

"She's (Molly is) at uni in Dublin,” she wrote. "So she'll be staying in Ireland and, seeing as she spends every other Christmas with her dad's family out there, I won't be seeing her until next year!

"I know she's finding the prospect of it really hard and so am I. That girl is my best friend and the thought of not being able to hug her until 2021 is hideous.

"We're gonna be doing a lot of video calls to make up for it!"
