It was sheer exhaustion

He said of the virus: “That’s knocking about, but there’s also flus and seasonal colds going about so you’ve got to tell yourself and learn the difference.

“I’m alright now. Last week I had flu like symptoms. I didn’t have the cough bad, I certainly didn’t have the temperature or anything like that so I just got on with it.

“That was when the heating had gone so it was minus two down here and freezing and I thought someone had got it in for me. I’m fine now.”

He added: “The coronavirus – you’d know if you caught that. I lay on the couch with the fire on and the dogs on top of me moaning.

“When you are lying on the couch dying or you think you are. It was sheer exhaustion like Chris Evans had too.”

Paul went on to say that he combined the likes of cider vinegar, garlic and rosemary in a bid to tackle his illness.
