Speaking to The Herald in August, she said ‘I was lucky’ I didn’t get a bad case of it where I had to go to hospital. 

‘But there have been repercussions. I still get a bit tired. Sometimes it will just hit me. And I have a little bit of a cough and a slight case of asthma.

‘And to add to that I have a propensity to be a bit chesty. It’s always been in the family. Now, I think I have a mild case of long Covid.’ 

Speaking to The Mirror Lulu also revealed that she’d had both jabs, so she felt a little more confident about not having any long-lasting repercussions from the illness.

‘I’ve had two vaccinations, I’ve got antibodies up the wazoo!’ She laughed. 

In June the star also revealed that she would be touring the UK this year and gave a witty response to how she maintains her youthful looks.
