GOGGLEBOX’S Jonathan Tapper left stranded for his life as he contracted the fatal Coronavirus.

The TV star of the reality show, 52, who has diabetes, was stranded “heaving with every breath” as his agitated family, who also caught COVID-19, eagerly watched by his bedside.

Nikki, 47, wife of Jonathan, spoke the Daily Star, and said, Jonathan, came from work the other night and couldn’t move a bit. 

“He had a high temperature with a severe cough. With no exaggeration, he laid on the sofa, and there stayed for more than two weeks in the lounge.”

The family was told by the Doctors to keep him attached to the oxygen monitor at home.

As she continued: “I ran downstairs and saw him heaving with every breath, he was pale, and I couldn’t believe it.

I held my nerves and kept on asking him if he could breathe. At that time, I couldn’t think straight as I was unwell myself at the time. Amy was crying too.”

Family’s spokesman has said that the whole Tapper family has the Coronavirus. The family is in better condition as of now. Jonathan is recovering fast and is in much better shape now.

Jonathan lost almost three stones in 3months after being diagnosed with diabetes. He slimmed down from 21st 3lb to 18th 8lb and also saw his waist shrink down from 44 inches to 38.

Jonathan said: sitting in front of Google telly filming box was one of the main reasons he gained weight, and after getting diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, he made the change.

He told the Daily star how much he loved eating and that kept him from losing weight. Though I have lost weight a couple of times, through exercise and rubbish diet, but gained more pounds over the years.

The star now has porridge in breakfast and veggies for lunch a stir fry healthy dinner and is total of the takeaways. The calorie drop is much noticeable, from 3000 to 1800 a day and exercise now four times a week.

He is now on, Do the Unthinkable diet on the Musclefood.com, featuring the high-intensity workouts with low calorie based meals.
