Just two weeks after production on the nightly soap ended Simon who players’ Steve McDonald tweeted on Thursday:
‘1st day out of bed today starting to feel a little better after contracting the virus,my main symptom was gastric and still is b****y awful but lucky to not have respiratory. Stay safe everyone x’.
Fellow cast members and fans flocked to reply back to Simon to send him well wishes.
This comes just 17 days after production stopped on filming Coronation Street and all of the soaps.
We really hope that he’s feeling better soon.
