The Chase’s Anne Hegarty has revealed that she’s enjoying life in coronavirus lockdown – although does feel ‘slightly guilty’ about it.
The general knowledge whiz appeared live from her home in Watford on today’s Good Morning Britain and revealed to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid that she’s been coping on her own just fine.
‘I feel really slightly guilty about it, but honestly I am literally the luckiest person in the UK right now, because I am absolutely fine staying on my own and I’ve been thinking for ages how wonderful it would be to have a nice, long guilt-free sabbatical,’ Anne confessed.
‘So, to be honest, this is working for me, if I just wasn’t worrying about how it’s not working for other people, obviously. Apart from missing recording The Chase, this actually really suits me.’
Anne revealed that The Chase has had to postpone filming for the foreseeable, but is continuing to put her knowledge to the test by participating in online quizzes.
‘I miss recording The Chase,’ she continued. ‘We had a whole load of programmes going to be recorded that had to be postponed.
‘I’m quizzing like mad. There’s a group opened on Facebook called Wiki Quiz, where people are setting enormous numbers of quizzes.
‘I’m actually having to ration myself. I’m telling myself I can only do three of those quizzes a day. Literally I could spend all day doing them, it’s dreadful.’
On Tuesday, it was reported the number of people hospitalised in the UK with coronavirus has passed 10,000.
Giving details at a press conference last night, Michael Gove said that 10,767 people had been admitted to hospital overall.
In London, he said there were 3,915 people needing hospital care while in the Midlands there were 1,918.
The Department Of Health also confirmed the number of people who have died after contracting coronavirus in the UK has reached 1,789.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
