‘I don’t like when people waste ambulances time but generally Harvey is at high-risk anyway because of coronavirus and high-risk because of obesity, the steroids he is on and his medical condition so I did call 999…

‘The ambulance came and put all the stuff on his chest – ECG, he had his blood done and temperature. His temperature was fine, ECG was fine, heart rate all came up fine.

‘But just for safety they took him to hospital and had chest x-rays and all of that and they just think he’s got a chest infection coming so that’s it. 

‘Luckily he’s home… Harvey is in full spirits as normal, he’s fine, he’s not experienced any chest pains now so that will clear up any rumours around Harvey. We are home, safe and sound.’
