Luisa Zissman has been forced to defend her decision to buy her own coronavirus antibody test.
Covid-19 has affected millions around the world, with the UK death toll passing 33,000.
And the Apprentice star revealed she had paid £125 for a test and would be getting the results in a matter of days.
Taking to Instagram, the 32-year-old shared a boomerang clip which appeared to be of her blood test, telling fans: ‘Antibodies test sent off!
‘Apparently 99% accurate so let’s wait and see, results in 2-5 days…. I really hope when I was bed bound a few months ago I had it!!

‘We bought these tests privately after a lot of research from a company in London. #staysafe #stayhome.’
However, shortly after her upload, the mum-of-three was inundated with comments from unhappy fans, who attacked her for getting a test when so many are still waiting.
When one asked why she decided to share her test so publicly when others ‘need them so much more’, she replied: ‘It’s an antibodies test. Anyone can buy them.
‘Key workers can get tests for free. I’ve chosen to spend the money I earn on a test, I’m struggling to see why so many people have an issue with that?’
Another follower suggested that she should be ‘spending the money to give a test to someone who needs it.
To which she said: ‘The government are providing tests for key workers. Easily ordered via their website and posted to your home.
‘Check out the .gov website you will be entitled to one if you are a front line key worker.’
‘Sorry for the negative post, but look us NHS workers don’t get this luxury,’ an Instagram user fumed.
‘Me and many others have the £125 but don’t have the time to even get down there for a test.
‘Obvs be awesome to know if you are immune but lets give the frontliners the view first? Being a nice person sic.’
But many, many more applauded Luisa’s purchase, and begged for more details.
The Celebrity Big Brother star is currently isolating at her lavish Hertfordshire mansion, alongside husband Andrew Collins, and her three daughters.
The couple share little Clemmie and Indigo together, while she also has Dixie from a previous relationship.
