Jessica Wright has given fans an update on her parents' coronavirus battle.
The former TOWIE star, 35, said her family is "not out of the dark yet" just hours before her brother Mark Wright 's appearance on Good Morning Britain.
Mark revealed that dad Mark Sr. has returned home following his shock battle with the deadly bug, but admits he's not the same "mentally".
And Jess has been flooded with questions from worried fans on Instagram over her parents' wellbeing.
"How are your family with corona doing," asked one curious fan.
"Have so many of these so thank you," Jess wrote. "Like I said ti has affected a lot of my family & some are not out of the dark yet but we are remaining to be positive."

She went on: "The strangest thing is that we all spend the whole Xmas period apart (of course) but still so many got it.
"It seems to be particularly contagious this second strain, and so much around where we live. And we don't even know how most have caught it."
Jess was the hit with even more questions from fans, as one asked about her mum and dad in particular.

Mark, who is married to Michelle Keegan, said one of his uncles is on oxygen in hospital, while another uncle named Eddie is in a critical position.
"My dad is out of hospital now, one of my dad's other brothers is in hospital, he's doing okay, he's on oxygen and my dad's other other brother … he's in a critical condition as we speak," he said.
"The message is what it should have been and has been from the start, like Kate has tried to promote on Good Morning Britain until you see it first hand, that might be the day you realise I need to buck up my ideas, but then it might be too late."

He continued: "I have good friends who are conspiracy theorists and they think it’s all rubbish and you don’t need to be locking down the country.
"My answer is, the Government, whether they are right or wrong, they know more than you, so, if they are telling you to do this, do it.
"Because until you get to a point where I am now, and I’ve had the hardest few weeks of my life and looking at basically potentially losing family members who are close to you or them being very sick."
