Soap star Stephanie Davis was admitted to hospital on Thursday where she was diagnosed with Covid-19.

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.

Davis explained: "So last night I had a bit of a headache before bed, and my sinuses.

"I woke up so ill. I had to call an ambulance basically, and I've tested positive for Covid-19. I feel like I've been ran over.

"The worst part is my skin. I can't touch my skin, it's killing me. I'm just in so much pain.

"Oh my god, it's horrible. And it just, it happened so quick. I basically woke up and couldn't move."

Davis, who is mum to son Caben-Albi, four, and suffers from asthma added: "I've never had sore skin before, so I thought: 'Well, this isn't like a chest infection'. Normally, I suffer with my chest. I feel rotten.''

The actress last posted on Instagram on Tuesday when she shared a picture celebrating her friends wedding with her boyfriend Oliver Tasker.
