Jessie Cave has revealed her boyfriend Alfie Brown has coronavirus after they rushed their three month old son Tenn to hospital with the bug.

The Harry Potter actress, who is famed for playing Ron Weasley's love interest in the film series, took her little boy into A&E after noticing a change in his behaviour. Luckily, he is now feeling "much better" and is recovering from the symptoms from the comfort of their home.

However, Jessie has now announced that after a "long delay" Tenn's father Alfie, 29, also caught Covid-19 and is now in isolation.

Speaking on the Lorraine show on 12 January, she explained that she went to get a test as she wanted to see her parents over the Christmas period, but was shocked to find she tested positive without any symptoms.

The actress then explained that her long-term boyfriend also has virus as she said: "[Alfie] has now got the virus. It's just a weird delay.

"It's such a strange illness and it affects everyone completely differently and so it's completely affected our lives over this period of time, I can't really imagine a normal day now.

"He is OK, he's doing much better now, it's just bizarre how it didn't affect me and it's completely affected him."

Jessie, who recently shared a sweet snap of her boy wearing a pair of red-framed sunglasses, went on to say that just two weeks after the test, her baby Tenn "just suddenly turned".

"I think that's the thing with newborns, you just have to be so hyperaware of every single symptom and trust your instincts," she said.

"Within a day he was just kind of changing a little bit, he wasn't feeding as much. His cry was different, it was like a different baby. I just went for it, went into A&E and I think that's what everyone has to do. They just have to be so aware of a sudden, quick change. It could have been a completely different story if we hadn't gone in."

She added: "Don't wait, go."

The TV star, who is also mum to Donnie, six, and four year old Margot, then explained that the stress of the ordeal has had an impact on their entire lives as she continued: "With this stage of newborn, their immune system is so weak and so anything can actually have a really bad consequence.

"That's why they treated it so seriously. I think, we think that if you're breastfeeding you have this immunity but it's just not true.

"Even my breastfeeding was completely affected by this because even just two nights of a complete change of routine has affected us.

"Because of the stress obviously, my milk kind of dried up a little bit. I've had to give him formula.

"Our entire lives have kind of changed," she added.
