Good Morning’s Charlotte Hawkins has returned to the show after being forced to self-isolate for 10 days.
The presenter revealed first thing on today’s programme that she had been taking measures to stop the potential spread of coronavirus after coming into contact with someone at ITV.
Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan didn’t have to isolate because only Charlotte had been in contact with that person.
‘It’s good to be back after 10 days of isolation,’ Charlotte told viewers.
Speaking to meteorologist Laura Tobin, Charlotte said she was glad ‘everything was all okay’.

Later on in the episode, Charlotte said she took advice from Dr Hilary Jones and did a self-imposed quarantine at home.
‘I was really worried and I just felt that huge sense of responsibility of keeping my family safe,’ she told her co-stars. ‘It was a really tough thing to do.’
Charlotte also opened up about her time in isolation in a post on Instagram and said it was tough having to be kept apart from her daughter Ella Rose.
‘I can’t tell you how hard I found it having to self-isolate for ten days, & how relieved I am it’s over and all is OK,’ she penned.
‘Not being able to be near this special one… not being able to hug her was heartbreaking, but not knowing whether I had Covid or not meant I needed to keep my family safe.
‘I’m so relieved I escaped it & tested negative, I know so many others haven’t been as lucky.
‘Sending love to all those going through it right now, & thinking of all those facing a tough time at the moment who can’t hug their loved ones. It makes you so thankful for what you have. If you’re able to, hug them close tonight.’
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
