Williams posted on Facebook last week that she had tested positive and was isolating at her flat.

“I’m feeling ok and continuing with my work remotely,” she said.

Kanongataá-Suisuiki said earlier on Monday she had taken a day three Covid-19 test as her daughter had the virus, and had also tested positive.

She said she was “feeling OK”, but could not smell or taste.

Parker tested positive last week, saying he had “some minor symptoms but not feeling too bad”.
