Shirley Ballas spoke candidly about her health after the head judge scooped the win for Best Entertainment for Strictly Come Dancing at the BAFTA TV Awards 2020. The small-screen star suffered a broken foot earlier this month and has now talked about her coronavirus fears.
The 59-year-old explained she suffered a “temperature” and made the decision to get tested for Covid-19.
Shirley said: “This week, I haven’t been doing anything. I broke my foot so that’s healing.
“I haven’t been so well these last few days and I had a temperature. I was coughing.”
The Strictly judge went on: “So I just took the Covid-19 test today. I have to wait 24 hours [for the results] but I’m at home alone.”
