Former Hollyoaks actress Stephanie Davis has shared a video from hospital after testing positive for coronavirus.

The 28-year-old said she had developed a headache before bed and woken up with symptoms that led to her calling an ambulance.

Davis, who played Sinead O’Connor in the Channel 4 soap from 2010 to 2019, told her followers she felt like she had been “run over”.

In one video posted on her Instagram story, she is seen lying in a hospital bed with an oxygen mask and intravenous drip.

She said: “Last night I got a bit of a headache before bed and my sinuses – I woke up so ill and I had to call an ambulance basically.

“I’ve tested positive for Covid. I feel like I’ve been run over. The worst part is that my skin – my front and back and my skin – I can’t touch my skin and it’s killing me.

“I’m in so much pain. Oh my God, this is horrible. It happens so quick. I basically woke up and I couldn’t move.

“Obviously I’ve never had sore skin before so I thought this isn’t a chest infection or what I would normally suffer with my chest. I feel rotten.

“I’m going to go back to sleep now, I’m literally in and out of sleep.”

Davis said medical staff had given her fluids and painkillers.

The actress shares a four-year-old son named Caben Albi with reality television personality Jeremy McConnell.
