JACK Fincham had been “in bed” all weekend in the nasty cold – but luckily, Covid caught on after it was revealed he was working on a construction site.
The 30-year-old ex had a poor voice in a video shared on Instagram today.
He said his weekend plans were ruined, telling his 1.9 million followers: “I’ve been in bed for two days. I haven’t woken up for two days. Anyone else have something similar?
“I don’t know what to do. I’m going to get tested for Covid today, my finger passed it negative. But to be honest, I’ve never felt so hard in all my life.
“Winter wonderland out the window, I really want to die. But I won’t let it put me down. I’m here, I’m breathing, I have my beautiful dogs and I’m going to stay positive possible. “
The reality TV star later updated fans with another video showing his negative Covid test results.
He added: “Oh, thank God for that. I’m not jealous of anyone getting the Covid man because I had the flu and it was horrible. But yeah, thank God, at least I have it. can go to work.”
Jack last week told how he’s been working on a construction site – three years after winning Love Island.
He also talks about “loving it” and driving dumps on the spot, but swears it’s just a temporary gig.
“I wake up at 5 or 6 every day and I’m at the construction site, I’m driving the dump truck and I love it,” he said on the podcast. Anything Goes with James English.
“Not because I want to be a builder, but because I want to keep my brain busy.”
He added: “I was sitting there waiting for the job to come to me and it didn’t happen. I had to go out and get it and that shows I’m very active.
“I’m making money again.”
He is trying to rebuild his fortunes after a battle with mental health and his recent drug-driving charge was dropped days before his trial.
Who is Jack? father for 11 month old daughter Blossom, is said to be focusing on charity work and taking some time for herself as legal proceedings have been settled.
In his most heartfelt interview, he opened up deeply about his personal drug war since leaving the villa.
Jack said: “I want to be recognized as good enough, not be the one to make it up.
“The one that people say ‘he could have done really well’.
“I don’t want to be known as that person. I want them to say yeah, he did it but look what he did now.
“I had no choice. With my addictive personality, it was death or death.
“I know it sounds extreme, but it’s true. If I don’t turn my life around, it’s either death.
“It’s going to hit a car or take too much of something. They’re choices.”
