Catherine Tyldesley reveals husband Tom and son Alfie, 5, have tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies after catching it on flight to Dubai

Catherine Tyldesley has revealed her husband Tom Pitfield and son Alfie, 5, have both tested positive for coronavirus antibodies. 

The former Coronation Street star, 36, previously voiced her concerns her family had fallen ill with the virus back in November, after a man on their flight collapsed.

Catherine wrote on Instagram this week: ‘We have just got our test results back. I thought Tom and Alfie had it in November and nobody quite believed it. It turns out I was right.

‘This ugly little b*****d of a disease has been flying around longer than we have been told.’

Catherine said earlier this year Tom had to be hospitalised after complaining ‘I can’t breathe’, while paramedics were later called out to look at Alfie after his temperature went up to 40 during the family holiday.

She said on Good Morning Britain: ‘We travelled to Dubai in November, and when were on the flight there was a young chap who collapsed several times.

‘He was receiving oxygen from the amazing staff on board. We made it to Dubai and he got whisked away.

‘The following morning Tom was in the spare room and he said, “I can’t breathe”. He was wheezing, and he’s never poorly. So I knew something was really wrong.

‘He got taken to hospital. They thought initially it was some kind of pneumonia. By day four Alfie’s temperature went up to 40 so we had the paramedics out once again.

‘I revealed this on Instagram once the holiday was over, and at least eight people DM’d me and said, “I was on that flight, and I got it, or my wife got it, or my child go it.”

‘So, for me, I think this has been knocking around probably since September or October, and it’s gradually been building.

‘I’ve never seen Tom that poorly and he had every symptom of the coronavirus. Alfie wasn’t as bad, but as we now know it doesn’t tend to affect children as badly, in most cases.

‘It’s too much of a coincidence.’ 

Earlier this month, Catherine revealed her grandfather tragically passed away after contracting coronavirus.

The former Coronation Street star revealed the sad news on Good Morning Britain just weeks after her mum also spent six days in intensive care after contracting COVID-19.
