Speaking from her Hertfordshire home, Michelle, 40, said: "Basically a friend has come in contact with someone we know very well that has been confirmed, so I was with that person who was with the other person, about 11 days ago.

"That person in particular had been with the one who was confirmed, and is always with us as a family.

"I do have a cough, AJ has sniffles, but kids get sniffles, it's a delicate situation. But I decided to do this, it was 12 days ago when the person was taken away and confirmed.

The singer added: "I'm as clueless as everyone else but I am taking that reaction as AJ has a weak immune system as he had meningitis, and we don't want to bring anything into the school."

Yesterday, the former Liberty X star assured fans she was fine, after experts in protective suits were seen roaming in the street outside, insisting: "We are NOT at all infected."

In a long post, she explained that they had decided to go into "house isolation" after "much deliberation".

She wrote:  “We do not have any symptoms… kids , me and Hugh have been told to go about our normal daily life, unless we show symptoms!

“That’s the advice and what’s been explained to us from the authorities. However, for those at school with our children, we are keeping Faith and AJ , and myself on “house isolation” after much deliberation.”

She again reiterated that they didn’t have any symptoms and that they hadn’t been in contact with the confirmed.

Michelle added: "To the countless friends and people in our area who've asked or reached out to us over the last 48 hrs with concern after seeing the the men in their white suits outside our house… We are all good!"

Her decision comes as Britain's coronavirus death toll has risen to five and the UK's infection rate rocketed to 321.

The patient, who was in their seventies, had long term health conditions and died at St Helier Hospital in Sutton, South London.

Daniel Elkeles, Chief Executive, for Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust said the patient "was very unwell with a number of significant and long term health conditions".

Yesterday it was revealed a fourth person had died from the virus while being treated at Royal Wolverhampton Hospital.
