    Mark Wright has two uncles in hospital battling COVID-19

    The 33-year-old star's dad Mark Wright Sr. has just returned home after being hospitalised with coronavirus, and now his father's two brothers are receiving medical attention for the respiratory illness, with Mark's Uncle Eddie in a coma in ICU


    Speaking on his Heart Radio show, he revealed: "My father was suffering in hospital and we worried for his life for two weeks, he’s now home, he’s not completely better, he knows that and we know it.

    "My other uncle is in hospital right now, receiving oxygen, and their other brother, my uncle Eddie who I love dearly is currently in a coma in the ICU.”

    The former 'TOWIE' star - who is married to actress Michelle Keegan - pleaded with his listeners to adhere to the UK government's rules and stay home to stop the spread, even though he can understand the urge to return to normality.

    He said: "I want my life back. I want my family to be well again. I don’t want my family to have to worry anymore. I don’t want you to worry anymore. If you want to get your life back, the only way this will happen is if we obey by the government rules. Now last time when this happened, last year’s lockdown, I saw such a difference.

    "Do you want to see your family members go through what I’m seeing right now? I understand if it hasn’t affected your family like it has affected mine, bloodlines are different, I don’t know the science of it, but what I do know is that my father, my dad was suffering in hospital and we worried for his life for two weeks, he’s now home, he’s not completely better, he knows that and we know it.

    "Now I’m trying not to be too dark but I’m trying to give you a personal from me, because I am seeing first hand, and I know if you haven’t seen it and you haven’t felt it the way I have, I understand it’s hard to believe it."
