On Monday Frankie revealed that she had coronavirus 'at the beginning' of the pandemic as she admitted that she is struggling with England's second lockdown.

The Saturdays singer, 31, said that her and her husband Wayne, 40, had planned to come out of the four-week lockdown 'lean and healthy' but admitted that their plans have already 'gone out the window'.

Speaking to Geordie Shore's Vicky Pattison on her podcast The Secret To..., Frankie expressed her annoyance at people stockpiling toilet roll for the second time this year.

Vicky, 33, jokingly asked whether people who suffered from coronavirus 'got the s**ts', in a bid to try and explain why people were still panic buying toilet roll.

But in response, Frankie revealed: 'I had corona, right at the beginning. I did not get the s**ts let me tell you.'

She continued: 'Yesterday I just burst out crying. I was like: It is all so rubbish, What the hell is going on – I can’t believe it!
