Chris, 54, said: "I think I've had it [coronavirus].

"I'm not saying I'm qualified to say this though.

"So many of us had this really weird cold two or three weeks ago and if four out of five most prominent people on the telly talking about coronavirus, if they can get it – they're only mild symptoms, a bit of a sniffle and dry cough…"

Chris, who has seven year old son Noah and 17-month-old twins Walt and Boo with wife Natasha Shishmania, added: "I didn't get the fever or the dry cough, that's why I didn't self-isolate.

"Noah had the fever and he self-isolated before we all had to for 14 days.

"But by that time, Tash had this cough and almost everybody you saw on telly reporting on the coronavirus looked red-faced and runny-eyed – I think lots of us have had it!"


Back in June Chris interviewed Tom Hanks, who was the first high profile celebrity to test positive for COVID-19 along with his wife Rita Wilson in Australia.

They self isolated there after being diagnosed with coronavirus.

The Saving Mr Banks actor revealed their diagnosis on March 11, via Instagram.

He wrote: "Hello, folks. @ritawilson and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too."

He continued: "To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive.
"Well, now. What to do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed. We Hanks’ will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no?"

He later shared an update as they kept fans informed on their condition.

"Hello folks. @ritawilson and I want to thank everyone here Down Under who are taking such good care of us," he wrote.

"We have Covid-19 and are in isolation so we do not spread it to anyone else. There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness.

"We are taking it one-day-at-a-time. There are things we can all do to get through this by following the advice of experts and taking care of ourselves and each other, no?

"Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball. Hanx"
