Taking to Twitter tonight, Reid said: “I am currently well but due to the new advice today I will be self-isolating for two weeks due to symptoms in my household. Stay well everyone.”
So far, there has been no news as to who will be replacing Reid on the morning show to present alongside Piers Morgan.
