Ulrika Jonsson has revealed she had to take her daughter for coronavirus testing.
Bo Jonsson, 20, was tested after coming home from college with ‘flu-like symptoms’.
Ulrika, 52, said Bo, who has had a cardiac defect since birth, was given the all-clear after complaining of a painful chest.
Bo was taken to hospital after being told she couldn’t go to a doctor’s surgery.
The presenter posted on instragram: “EVERYTHING IS FINE.
“But yesterday was fraught with anxiety and exhaustion.
“Oldest Female Ungrateful had come home from Uni full of flu-like symptoms and painful chest.
“Wasn’t allowed to go to Dr’s. 111 sent an ambulance to get her (very calmly) and took her to A&E where Corona had to be ruled out in isolation and investigations pursued due to her cardiac defect.
“She was ridiculously brave - despite the distress it was causing her. Finally given the all clear.
“Mamma is so proud and relieved.
“And will be eternally grateful to our amazing #nhs which is always there when you need it and has been saving her life since before she was born.
“(Huge thanks to the 3 wonderful paramedics who treated her with such care and respect. And were sweet with our doggies. I bow to thee).”
