Speaking to Angelica at the start of the show, the money-saving expert was in high spirits as he joked: “I’m a little bit under the weather, a bit nauseous, but I’ve got make up on to cover the green!”
Martin tweeted prior to that: “The problem with having your own live TV show, is when you’re feeling under the weather as I am right now (nauseous and weak) show must go on.
“Let’s hope Dr. Showbiz helps. At least I’m doing it from home so I can go to bed straight afterwards.”
One of his followers wrote: “It’s not the virus I hope.”
Martin admitted that he shared the fan’s fear – but felt it wasn’t likely as he didn’t have any of coronavirus‘ main symptoms.
Retweeting the message and adding: “I hope not too, but I have no fever, no cough and still have my sense of taste, so thankfully I think it’s unlikely.”
Another concerned follower urged Martin to do the test just to be safe, writing: “Maybe time to get tested before you do any more shows!

“Hope you feel better soon – you need to rest up”.
Another agreed: “My sister had all the symptoms of a kidney infection.
“She was sick which then raised her temperature so was able to book a test. Came back positive. Wouldn’t hurt to do a test just in case.”
