'Love Island' star Adam Collard has revealed he's tested positive for Coronavirus after a holiday to Greece and detailed the symptoms
Love Island star Adam Collard has caught Coronavirus after heading on a Greek holiday with a pal and taken to Instagram to talk his followers through his symptoms, which he's described as 'like a bad hangover'.
The self-confessed fitness enthusiast has been open with his diagnosis and everything his body has endured since he fell poorly with the virus.
He wrote: "My best mate and me shared a bed/flight for 4 days together in Greece and he's negative and I'm positive."
"Done 50+ tests in the gym and all negative/."
"Secondly, it obviously can be caught by anyone since I'd like to think I'm fitter and healthier than the average Joe. No exceptions."
"How bad is it? [...] For me, it's actually ok, manageable."
"Best way to describe it is like a bad hangover with a mega dry throat. Annoying more than anything and it comes in waves."
"Wanted to do work and a bit [of] easy training yesterday but today feeling a bit fuzzy in the old head."
The Geordie isn't letting the virus slow him down, as he's still been heading to the gym to try and give his body the best chance of fighting off the illness, hitting back at critics who say he should be resting!
Adam wrote: "Before anyone gets on the high horse. I know my body. I know my limits. I know what makes me feel good mentally & physically."
