Jamie Oliver has recently opened up about his wife Jools’ two-year long battle with long Covid.

The celebrity chef, 47, has said his wife’s condition has left doctors “mystified” as she continues to fight against the virus, which he described as “deeply scary.”

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Jamie described his 47-year-old wife of 22 years as a “superstar” and that she had been “really affected” by her long Covid symptoms.

The couple had attended appointments with private doctors across London, however no medic has been able to find a resolution yet.

He said: “She’s had bad Covid and long Covid, so she’s been really affected by it, sadly.

“She’s OK, but still not what she wants to be. It’s been two years. She finds it deeply scary.

“We’re all over Harley Street like a rash, but no one really knows anything. The data on long Covid is still piling in. She’s been an absolute superstar.”

The Office for National Statistics have estimated that 1.8million Britons are currently suffering from long Covid.

Jamie dedicated his latest recipe book, ‘One: Simple One-Pan Wonders’, to his wife, saying: “If ever I wrote a book that was perfect for you, it’s this one,” and that it is “an opportunity to say, ‘Thank you. Love you’.”

Jools’ fight with long Covid wasn’t the only heartache the couple shared, as the pair also suffered a miscarriage through lockdown.

It was in 2020 that Jools revealed she had suffered five miscarriages, with two before son River was born, in 2016, and three in the following years.

She shared an image of a candle on social media, penning a tribute to her “stars in the sky”.

The pair share five children in total, 20-year-old Poppy, Daisy, 19, Petal, 13, Buddy, 11, and six-year-old River.
