"But he decided to go for a test to make sure as he started feeling very weak, which is unusual for him and he struggles to breathe sometimes."

The source added “He’s barely been out and has spent most of his time at home with his family.

“Because Emily is working and the UK is in lockdown, Pete has no option but to look after his four children as normal and isolate away from Emily at home."

  • Katie Price 'desperate to fall pregnant with twins' and will 'consider anything' with Carl Woods

The star's management team confirmed the bad news.

But said he determined to fight off the virus and get back to normal as quickly as possible.

They said: “Yes, he has got Covid and he’s recovering at home.

"He is coping well."

The star's coronavirus battle comes as the UK recorded over 1,000 more deaths according to the government's latest concerning update.

Pete has two children with wife Emily, Amelia, six and four year old Theo.

They also live with Junior, 15, and Princess, 13 – the star's older children from his previous marriage to Katie Price.

As of Monday January 4, government figures suggest there are 30,451 patients in hospital with Covid-19.

Emily is an NHS doctor and Pete has spoken of his pride as his wife's work during the pandemic.

He spoke to the Sun about the worrying moment she fell unwell.

“It was a really scary time. Emily became ill when the cases were soaring, nobody knew the symptoms, not all doctors were wearing masks and Emily was very exposed to it,” he said.

Pete called her "wonderful" and "selfless" as she helps patients in hospital wards on a daily basis.
