Idris Elba admitted having coronavirus was "very sobering". The 'Mountain Between Us' actor and his wife Sabrina Dhowre Elba were among the first high-profile names to be diagnosed with the virus at the start of the pandemic last year and although the pair only had mild symptoms, the 48-year-old star admitted it was a "traumatic" time as he was deemed high risk because he has asthma and so little was known about COVID-19 at the time.

He told the Evening Standard newspaper: "Facing my mortality, being diagnosed with Covid and not knowing what it was at the time - going through that was very sobering. " The couple were subjected to "stupid" conspiracy theories that they were being paid to lie about the virus and Idris and Sabrina admitted it.
