Westbrook said she knew people who had caught Covid even though they had had both of their jabs.

"It seems there's been a massive wave of Covid outbreak yet again and I'm one of the people that have got it,” she said.

"Look after yourselves, look out for each other and stay safe. Take care."

Westbrook added in the caption: “I have Covid yet everyone I know seems to be on social media having it as well …. What’s going on!”

Saying she was handing her social media platforms over to her management while she recuperated, the star said she was “sending love and light” to everyone.

The actress has also dabbled in reality TV, appearing on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, Dancing On Ice and Celebrity Big Brother.
