Good Morning Britain presenter Sean Fletcher has been told to isolate after testing positive for Covid-19.

He shared the news on Instagram as he was left unable to take part in Sunday Morning Live due to the results – which is likely to keep him in isolation over Christmas.

Sean shared a photo of his positive Lateral Flow Test to his profile as he wrote: "Had quite a morning. A positive Lateral Flow Test backed up by a positive PCR test."

To make things worse, Sean said: "Went down for breakfast and cut my finger with a bread knife. Couldn't stop it bleeding," as he added that he joined Sunday Morning Live via Zoom.

He said: "Thanks for stepping in Adrian, and thanks to everyone for watching this series. See you for another series in the summer!"

Sean was sent well wishes as his followers and coworkers sent him messages to get well soon.

Dr Zoe Williams wrote: "Oh no! Hope the Covid is a mid case Sean – just coming out the other end here."

Another said: "Oh no! Hope you're not too poorly and get well soon, and less jinxed."

A third wrote: "Aww so sorry to hear that Sean. Get well soon and praying for speedy recovery."

Sean often appears on GMB alongside the likes of Susanna Reid, Ben Shephard, Ranvir Singh, Charlotte Hawkins and Kate Garraway.

He will not be appearing on the morning show until his isolation period has ended after the festive period.

Over Christmas, Ben, Susanna and Kate will be taking a fortnight off while Charlotte has headed up the desk for her hosting duties throughout the week.

Adil Ray will be joining Charlotte to host the show for the next few weeks as he shared a selfie with Charlotte last night and wrote: "Back on GMB tomorrow with Charlotte Hawkins, do join us.

"We're both on from six, earlier start. She likes me that much! Lots to get through."

Fans have been happy to see them on screen as they head up the news segment in their co-hosts absence, with the rest of the GMB team preparing to come back in the new year.
