Dancing On Ice star Linda Lusardi has urged her fans to follow the advice of experts after she entered self-isolation because she has coronavirus symptoms.

The 61-year-old actress added on Twitter that she has “never felt this ill”.

The former glamour model said: “We are taking it one day at a time, that’s all we can do. But let me tell you, we’ve never felt this ill, ever!

“I wouldn’t wish this on anyone. So stay safe everyone and follow the advice of the experts – please take care of yourselves, loved ones and each other.”

On Wednesday she had previously tweeted to say that she was “extremely ill” with the virus.

Lusardi, whose TV appearances include Emmerdale, Dancing On Ice and Loose Women, found fame in the 1970s and ’80s, and in a 2005 poll was voted the UK’s most popular Page 3 girl ever.
