Prime Minster Boris Johnson had been suffering with 10 days of symptoms and was taken to St Thomas’ Hospital in central London on Sunday.

Mr Johnson has since been admitted into intensive care and is ‘in good spirits’ while receiving ‘standard oxygen treatment’.

The Prime Minister’s fiancee Carrie Symonds, who is pregnant with their first child, said she is ‘on the mend’ after self-isolating since displaying Covid-19 symptoms.

Mr Heappey said: “I am deeply concerned that the Prime Minister has been transferred to intensive care.

“Kate and I send all our love and cares to Boris and Carrie. We hope he’ll make a quick recovery and they’ll be reunited as soon as possible.”
