Mark Wright has revealed Covid-stricken dad is out of hospital but ‘isn’t the same’ and his uncle remains in ‘a critical condition’

The TV presenter and footballer’s mum Carol, 60, and dad Mark Wright Snr, 64, tested positive for the deadly bug on New Year’s Eve and he admitted he’s since had the “scariest week” of his life.

He told Goood Morning Britain hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid today: “My dad is out of hospital now. One of my dad’s other brothers is in hospital, he’s doing OK on oxygen, my dad’s other brother is not in a good place he’s in a critical condition.

“We’re praying every night we’re going to have a miracle. We’re getting good news each day. He’s not getting worse but we’re praying.”

He added: “I hope my dad doesn’t mind me saying this but mentally something’s not right there, he’s not my dad who he was four weeks ago. It can leave long lasting problems.

Mark said he has had the ‘scariest week’ of his life

Piers wanted to know if Mark had a message to people who believe the coronavirus is a hoax.

Mark replied: “The message is what it should be from the start. What Kate (Garraway) has tried to promote. Until you see it first hand, that might be the day you realise you need to buck up your ideas.

“I’ve got friends who do it as well, they think it’s a conspiracy theory. Whether the government are right or wrong they know more than you.

“I’ve had the hardest few weeks of my life, potentially losing family members who are close to you and very sick. You will regret not sticking to the rules.

“Please stick to the rules, when you see it first hand it is the scariest thing.”

“My hubby and I have got attacked with the virus all over Christmas, my husband is fighting it, I am suffering the worst coughing fits ever.
