Fiona Phillips has revealed that she had to endure “annoying comments” while trying to recover from the corona virus.
The TV presenter, 59, who announced that she contracted the virus in March and has fully recovered since then, said he was forced to quit Twitter because of the trolls.

The broadcaster told it The Daily Star Sunday: ‘I came all the way from Twitter, because even if they think you’re on the doorstep, there are still people who make nasty comments about you.
The star, who first revealed she had coronavirus on March 20 after a “sore throat, dry cough, and headache,” said she had no time to think when the virus took over.
Phillips continued, “There is an element of fear. The unknown is very scary. But I didn’t have time to think if I might get through it because it hit me. ‘
She added, “I was completely absorbed by the disease. Now I’m tired and can’t wait for this to be over. ‘
The former GMTV host became one of the first media personalities to reveal that she suffered from Covid-19.
In March, she wrote in a column for The Mirror that the virus had given her “shortness of breath” and “a body-sized sweatcoat.”
The star revealed: ‘After wearing gifts like a fiery sore throat, high temperature / fever, shortness of breath, irritating dry cough, aches, pains, lethargy and a full-body sweat jacket – nice – I’ll do my best to make sure [COVID-19] also does not stay too long. ‘
She said: “The first sign of the nasty bug’s generosity was about a week ago, in the form of a terrible, sort of scratchy stomachache that made me feel full, from my throat, through my entire digestive system.
In March, the TV presenter took to Twitter to announce that she was in bed with coronavirus

“It kept me awake all night – it was as if a witch had pushed her twig of broom into my food channel and down my throat, leaving it there and twisting it intermittently.”
The TV presenter, who was also a guest of Lorraine, previously took to Twitter to share the news of her diagnosis in a message that read, “ I’m in bed with #coronvirusuk.
“It’s not a very pleasant bed mate, but nothing more than a sore throat, dry cough, headache and fatigue. As long as it stays that way … NO panic! ‘
After her tweet, her former GMTV co-host Eamonn Holmes, 60, shared a support message and wrote: ‘Get well Miss Fiona. Keep us informed x. (sic)
