He broke his silence on his diagnosis in a video on Instagram on Thursday night.

He told his 4.5million followers that he is lucky to not have any symptoms, but he is taking precaution not to spread the deadly virus to others.

Speaking to camera, HRVY said: "Hi guys, so I wasn't going to say anything because I didn't want to worry anybody or be dramatic but now the story's out there. I have coronavirus. I've tested positive.

"All is fine, I'm isolating. I have no symptoms. I'm just chilling. I'm bored. I've been making a million TikToks if you haven't seen already.

'It just proves that us youngsters can get it and not even realise.”

He continued: "I'm fine but I'll be chilling in this bedroom for 10 days or two weeks I'm not sure, but I'm gonna be here for a while. But I'll see you on the other side."
