Pregnant Michelle McManus has tested positive for Covid but reassured fans that she and the bump are feeling ‘a bit better.’

The 41-year-old Pop Idol star, who won the second and final series of the singing contest back in 2003, announced the news on Instagram on Thursday with a photo of her positive lateral flow test. 

The Scotswoman is expecting her second child with husband Jeff Nimmo, after the pair welcomed their son Harry, 22 months, last February.

The All This Time singer used the accompanying Instagram caption to express her gratitude at being double vaccinated, despite receiving a Christmas present she ‘wasn’t quite hoping for.’

She wrote: ‘Not quite the Christmas present I was hoping for but thankfully me & bump are now feeling a bit better [smiley emoji, pregnant emoji]. So very grateful that I had been double vaccinated [injection emoji].

‘Thank you to our incredible @nhsggc & all those responsible for the brilliant vaccine roll out across Scotland [sic] #covid #covidpositive #pregnancy #vaccination’.

Last month, the pop singer took to Instagram to share her baby news, alongside a sweet snap of her son Harry playing ‘peekaboo’ with her bump. 

In the image, Michelle tenderly placed a hand on her bump while little Harry covered his eyes in excitement.   

The post was captioned: ‘Harry playing Peekaboo with Mummy, Daddy and bump.. Baby Nimmo no 2 due early 2022. #overthemoon #family #love #pregnant #3become4.’

Michelle’s followers quickly flooded the comments section with their congratulations, including presenter Kate Thornton who wrote: ‘Congratulations.’

The couple announced the birth of their son by sharing a very candid snap of herself cradling her adorable little boy following his birth.

The songstress gazed adoringly at her new arrival as she held him in her arms while wrapped in a blanket, as he wore a sweet little knitted hat.

Following the special event, Michelle took to Instagram to thank NHS staff for their ‘care and attention’ throughout her ‘challenging’ pregnancy.
