Kay Burley took to Twitter to tell the public that she is self-isolating after coming back from the US. The Sky News presenter had been there to cover the US elections. But she compared herself to Boris Johnson who is also self-isolating this week after coming into contact with someone who has coronavirus.

Ms Burley said: “Working from home, a little bit like the Prime Minister.

“I think that’s one of the only things we’ve got in common.

“Hopefully he’s watching.”

In a video posted on her Twitter earlier, the presenter showed her working from home set up in her living room.

She said: “Little bit weird this morning.

“We have a makeshift studio for the next 10 days because obviously, I’m quarantining having been to cover the US elections.”

Ms Burley furiously erupted at Matt Hancock this morning as she questioned why MPs are not wearing masks.

Ashfield MP Lee Anderson has tested positive for COVID-19 just days after a meeting with Mr Johnson.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock was asked about a photograph of the meeting between Boris Johnson and Lee Anderson, which appeared to show the pair closer than two metres apart.

He replied: “They are socially distant and the critical thing is, as Prime Minister, you do meet people.

“I have no doubt he will be driving things forward via Zoom but the thing is when you are in close contact with somebody you do need to self-isolate if they are positive and that’s exactly what the Prime Minister has done.”

The presenter continued: “You also need to wear a mask when you’re in close contact with people especially indoors, don’t you? And they’re not and look what has happened.”

The Cabinet Minister said: “There are of course Covid-secure guidelines for how you operate at work and this is true in Downing Street or in any other work environment.

“Then if you test positive, it’s really good that the test result came back so quickly.

“We’ve brought those test turnaround times down.

“This is how the system ought to operate and then Lee Anderson MP and the Prime Minister are following those rules.”

Ms Burley added: “Why on earth are they not wearing a mask? As a result, our Prime Minister is incapacitated on what could be one of the most important weeks ever for Brexit.

“They should be wearing masks. You know that, I know that. Why are they not doing it?”

Mr Hancock said: “There are Covid-secure guidelines in any workplace and I have absolutely no doubt the Prime Minister will be able to drive the agenda forward and communicate with the public in the way he does normally.”
