Love Island winner Anna McEvoy has revealed her boyfriend Michael Staples has now tested positive to Covid.

‘Michael has tested positive to Covid,’ Anna said. ‘The hotel has called us and said they have found space in a hospital hotel.’ 

“I don’t have to go to hospital now. I cannot tell you how relieved I am. We are going to the hospital hotel this morning.” 

Anna said she has no symptoms with her able to leave hotel quarantine hopefully within seven days – if not sooner – depending on if she is ‘shedding’ the virus.

Anna explained the rules would have meant she is to be ‘taken to hospital’ while Michael would have been forced to quarantine for 14 days after she leaves.   

Anna said she was having a difficult time emotionally, with her moods ‘up and down,’ and saying she is trying to remain positive. 

‘The thing we are most concerned about is if Michael is never going to test positive. If he has to go and do 14 days isolation if he leaves me,’ Anna said.

‘We are assuming we can be together. But if I at some point get taken to the hospital. If they say that we could be in Thailand for a month.’   

Anna said a month in Thailand would be ‘very expensive’ for the couple – who would need to foot the bill for the hotel and flights. 

‘If they tell him his 14 days isolations starts we could be in Thailand for like a month, which is very scary and extremely expensive. I can’t go there.’  

Tough: 'It's difficult when you're in a different country as there's a language barrier. Everyone has been nice...But there has been so miscommunications in regards to what is going on'

Anna went on to say the language barrier has also been a problem, along with the hospitals being overrun with Covid patients. 

‘It’s difficult when you’re in a different country as there’s a language barrier. Everyone has been nice…But there has been so miscommunications in regards to what is going on. 

‘Mainly because I think the hospitals are full and rules are if you have Covid you go to hospital so they don’t know what to do with us.’   

Anna revealed the night before she had a ‘panic attack’ and was struggling with her ‘mental health’ saying they were both ‘confused and stressed’.
