The former 'EastEnders' star has been left "fuming" after she contracted the virus, and admitted she "doesn't know why people bother" having the vaccine after she heard of some who tested positive for coronavirus after being doubled jabbed.

Speaking in a video on her Instagram account, she said: "Just a quick update to let you know that yes, I've got COVID and I'm really, really poorly. I'm gutted, fuming.

"Then again, people that I know that have had both jabs have got it again so f*** knows if that was worth it about the vaccinations.

"I don't know why people bother because they've gone and got COVID again anyway.

"It seems there's been a massive wave of COVID outbreak yet again and I'm one of the people that have got it.

"So, look after yourselves, look out for each other and stay safe. Take care."

The 47-year-old actress - who has also appeared in 'Hollyoaks' - told fans she was handing control of her socials over to her management as she battles COVID.

She captioned her video: "I have covid yet everyone I know seems to be on social media having it as well …. What’s going on ! I’m fuming and so poorly wishing everyone well and from today my social media platforms being handed over to my management. Sending love and light to all see you soon (sic)"

This comes after former 'Oaks' actress Stephanie Davis was struck down with COVID earlier this month.

She was hospitalised and on oxygen, but has since returned home.

Last night (14.07.21), she treated herself to some McDonald's gherkins and salsa dip.
