Rosie Connolly has revealed that she contracted Covid “after two years of dodging the bullet.”

The Dubliner took to her Instagram Stories on Saturday to tell her followers that she was suffering the “worst 12 hours of sickness” she’s had in years.

She then shared a photo of a positive antigen test with two distinct red lines indicating that she’d caught the virus.

“I think after two years of dodging the bullet, we’ve got a mam down,” Rosie said.

“Waiting on an antigen to be brought home to me but wow, worst 12 hours of sickness I’ve had in the longest time! Fever, chills, nausea, migraine...

“If it’s not Covid then it’s a pretty brutal flu,” she added before her test results came back.

The mum-of-two also said that her eyes were “killing” her and felt “so sensitive,” so she was going to bed to get some rest.

It seems that Covid has finally caught up with Rosie, as she narrowly avoided the virus last summer.

Back in May, the influencer told her followers that she had been bed bound for days and said: “Hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine at last!!! Very jealous as I haven’t left the bed the last few days.”

Sharing a screenshot of a text from the HSE saying that her PCR test had come back negative, she added: “Thankfully not Covid but it's hit me like a tonne of bricks.

“Super effective testing… Had mine yesterday and it came back within 24 hours. Was in and out in five mins! I’m off to get even more sleep and hopefully be better tomorrow to enjoy the sun!”
