Strictly contestant Judi Love has said she feels "exhausted" and "achy" after testing positive for Covid.
The TV star, 41, was forced to miss this week's instalment of the BBC dance contest after contracting the coronavirus, and told fans she was really disappointed.
Sharing an update in her OK! magazine column, Judi revealed she was definitely feeling under the weather.
"At the time of writing this column, I'm feeling lethargic and achy, but I'm hoping to rest up and kick it as soon as I can," she said.
The Loose Women star said of testing positive: "Obviously, I was really shocked and this reminded me how things can just change and how important it is to keep testing and social distance."
She also said she was relieved that her pro dance partner Graziano Di Prima and her two children had all tested negative.
Judi and Graziano had been preparing a cha-cha-cha to Olivia Newton-John's track Physical for this weekend and the star admitted she was "heartbroken" that she didn't get to do it.
Strictly confirmed earlier this week that Judi and Graziano would not be performing.
A spokesperson said: "Judi Love has tested positive for Covid-19 and is now self-isolating following the latest government guidelines.
"While Judi and Graziano will not be taking part in Strictly Come Dancing this weekend, Strictly Come Dancing protocols mean that all being well, they will return the following week."
Her fellow Strictly stars sent their support after it was announced that Judi was missing the show.
Contestant Sara Davies posted on Instagram: "Oh Judi we'll miss you guys!"
And Adam Peaty wrote: "Get better soon lovely. Everyone is going to miss you so much!"
"Your energy and smile will be so missed this weekend!!" said pro dancer Katya Jones. "Get better and we can't wait to have you back!!! Hurry up."
