A contestant who appeared on RTÉ talent show Last Singer Standing has been diagnosed with the Omicron variant of Covid.

Dubliner Ciara Rose initially posted a picture of herself partying with a glass of champagne saying: “Well at least I got to do this last week – Omicron has me now!”

Ciara confirmed her diagnosis to the Sunday World.

“It was pretty sad news for me today receiving the text, but thankfully none of my close contacts have it so far, that’s all I care about,” she stresses.

“I’m also grateful to be vaxed and, hopefully, won’t be down too long. I have a gig on the 29th so I’m hoping my voice returns soon.”

Ciara (33) released a charity single ’Gone’ last year after witnessing a neighbour die of Covid during the first lockdown.

“Because we weren’t allowed in the church, we all lined the road and clapped the coffin,” she said last year.

“The daughter got out of the car and I’ll never forget it. We were all there but nobody was allowed to go near her and she was on her own in the funeral car.

“She just stood in the middle of the road and sobbed her heart out. I went home and actually wrote this song that night. I obviously made a few changes but it just absolutely broke my heart.”

Talented Ciara has been singing since the age of four and has also been on our screens with a previous role in Fair City.

The singer/actress was later cast as the lead in horror flick Invoked, the premiere of which she attended in Hollywood.

Ciara lost out to Corkman Patrick O’Sullivan, who scooped the €25,000 first prize in last Singer Standing.
