Anne Hegerty admitted she felt guilty for enjoying isolation amid the coronavirus lockdown.

The Chase star, 61, said she was the "luckiest person in the UK right now" because she's been "absolutely fine staying in" her home in the UK.

During Wednesday's Good Morning Britain interview from her home, Anne confessed she had been enjoying some well-deserved me-time while the UK plunged into lockdown.

The I'm A Celeb star has been keeping herself preoccupied by doing a string of quizzes online, so much so she's had to restrict herself to how many she completes a day.

She told the presenters: "I feel slightly guilty about it, I am the luckiest person in the UK right now.

"I’ve been absolutely fine staying in my home. To be honest, this is working for me if I just wasn’t worrying about how its effecting other people."

However, Anne revealed the one thing she missed during lockdown was filming The Chase.

The quiz master admitted it was "irritating" the show's filming had been postponed but otherwise she has been quite content at home.

"He was 69 and in good health and I’m not quite sure what happened. That was really unfortunate. We are all going to miss him."

Anne later shared her well wishes for her The Chase co-star Paul Sinha who has been really unwell for the past 10 days.

She elaborated: "My colleague Paul Sinha has been tweeting about how he is really quite ill for the last 10 days or so. We are hoping he is over the worst of it now."
