ITV News Central presenter Des Coleman has gone into self-isolation as a precaution during the Coronavirus outbreak.
In November 2018 he fell seriously ill with a gastric tumour and was rushed to hospital where he had an emergency operation.
Now, although fully recovered, the NHS has advised him to self-isolate for three months.
It was a bit of a surprise, I turned on my phone and I had a text message - that's the first thing I knew about it from the NHS. Then we verified it and it basically said that because I was poorly just over a year ago, the best thing I can do is self-isolate for three months.
He assures us that he is in great health, and that it is just a precaution given the amount of blood transfusions he received during his illness.
He's going to start by pottering in the garden and fixing things round the house.
His best advice is to slow down and do everything more thoroughly than ever!
Des will be keeping a close eye on the weather forecast from home, and ITV Central will be supported by the rest of the ITV weather team.
He may even work out how to bring the forecast to you from his living room!
