'I'm not convinced it was that. It was more than likely a seasonal cold, but it was the right thing the do, anyone who was showing symptoms should be isolating. 

'So I decided to do that I was supposed to be co-presenting The One Show but I had to cancel.'

Kym revealed she was staying at home with her daughter Polly, nine, son David, 25, and his girlfriend. 

But the star reflected on how much she was missing her partner Scott and grandson Teddy, 11 months. 

The former Coronation Street star said: 'Yeah it's hard. It was hard anyway but it's been even more so now because you want to be with your partner at times like these.

'Actually he and also the other boys have been delayed coming back... he won't be back till next month, he was meant to come back this month. We'll have done seven months by the time he comes back.

'When Scott gets back it's another dynamic in the house, we'll feel a bit safer'.

Of missing her grandson, Kym added: 'It's such a shame we're going to miss his first birthday, Emilie moved out in February so it's really new anyway her not being here, so now not being able to visit or see them is really difficult, but it's great she's sending us photos and videos all the time.'  

Kym and Scott have been dating since July 2018, three months after she split from personal trainer Matt Baker.

Back in December 2018, Kym revealed she and Scott were facing six months apart as the soldier was due to return to Afghanistan for duty in the Parachute Regiment.

Despite the long-distance looming, the star was resolute in her belief that their relationship will survive the strain. 

The pair found love after being introduced by mutual friend Antony Cotton.

Kym had split from Matt three months before sparking up a romance with Scott, after a two year romance.

Kym was first in a relationship with builder David Cunliffe before her rise to fame in 2001's Popstars, and the couple had a son David and daughter Emilie, 23, during a five-year relationship. 













After breaking onto the pop scene as a member of Hear'Say Kym married EastEnders star Jack Ryder, 36, in 2002, but they divorced in 2009 after she admitted having an affair with Hollyoaks star Jamie Lomas, 43.

Kym went onto marry Jamie in 2012, and the couple have a daughter Polly. The couple's first child Archie, passed away shortly after his premature birth in 2009.

Just over a year after tying the knot, Kym filed for divorce from Jamie in 2013 citing 'unreasonable behaviour'.

She is also a grandmother, with daughter Emilie welcoming baby son Teddy in May last year.
