She said: ‘I actually got it in January, I was really lucky because I didn’t have to go to the hospital, but I’ve noticed I’m still tired and sometimes a little bit of a cough… it’s persistent.

“I don’t know if I could say it’s covid for a long time, but it’s persisting.”

She continued: ‘I think I was lucky I wasn’t sick for 3 or 4 or 5 months, I had it for a few weeks, I didn’t have to go to the hospital.

The singer is known for her incredibly successful singing career and her brief affair with David Bowie.

In 2019, she revealed that she was in love with him in the 1970s.

In Lorraine, the star spoke about her partnership with the late Heroes hitmaker, who passed away in 2016, and said the couple had a “unique relationship.”

She said, ‘I had a thing for him, I’d say. And it was mutual.’

She added that they had “kissed,” and when Ross King asked her if she’d been in love with the Starman singer, she revealed, “Maybe for a minute, yeah.”

The Shout hitmaker previously discussed her romance with Bowie in her autobiography, I Don’t Want To Fight and in a 2017 interview with Weekend Magazine.

The pair collaborated on a 1974 song, The man who sold the world. David invited her to record with him at his chateau studio in France, with the couple ending up in bed together, though he famously told her she could use some to lose weight.

“He didn’t suggest that I lose weight because he loved me more that way,” she wrote in her book. “It was more of a professional observation. He was one of the pioneers of the gaunt, heroin-chic look, and he thought it would help my career. It was typical of David.’

The singer has been married twice, first to Bee Gee Maurice Gibb in 1969 and then to hairdresser John Frieda, the father of her son Jordan, 43.
