However, despite the scare he reassured everyone that he is ‘on the mend’ in a short video.

‘Hi guys, just checking in to let you know I’m still around. I have been laid up with Covid-19 for a few days, just mild but it was there and it’s not nice, I promise you,’ he said.

‘So please, please stay inside. We’re all going stir crazy, we know that, but please stay inside.’

The much-loved star continued: ‘Take the pressure off the NHS, Marie Curie, et cetera. Please, please stay in guys, and enjoy as best you can.’

Celebrities and fans alike rushed to his side with well wishes, including the likes of Paddy McGuinness, who wrote: ‘Stay well pal. Good to see you.’

Others tried to lighten the tone and reference Pal’s iconic TV show Chuckle Vision, adding: ‘Oh dear, oh dear. Childhood hero, best get well soon. Kindest regards.’

Someone else said: ‘Glad you’re on the mend. Thank you for sending out the Stay At Home message. Stay safe and enjoy Chucklevision on YouTube. Best tonic going for days indoors.’

Another was quick to quip: ‘Hope you dont pass anything on To Me cause I wouldn’t pass on it To You.’
