KYM Marsh has updated fans on her return to Strictly after a “tough and scary week”.
Kym, 46, was also terrified for her dad who was rushed into hospital.
Appearing on Morning Live, Kym said: “Start of the week I came down with Covid. That was rubbish. Thankfully I’m testing negative now.”
She will return to rehearsals today in preparation of being back on Strictly at the weekend.
“I can’t wait to see you,” Kym’s dance partner Graziano Di Prima, 28.
“We take for granted that we spend so much time together.
“Being apart for a week has been strange. It’s crazy – but today, I’m going to meet her again.”
Kym was given a free pass through to next week after getting sick.
