Mel Greig is in a world of hurt after catching the flu.

‘Everything aches, including my teeth,’ Mel, 39, said in a video on Instagram.

She spoke of how the illness was affecting her both physically and mentally.
‘I was not prepared for how awful influenza A actually is. If you haven’t had the flu jab, get it,’ she said.
‘You’re just so uncomfortable you can’t even sleep. And this is 24 hours on.’

The pair were at the centre of an international controversy in 2012.
One of their prank calls to the English hospital which then-pregnant Kate Middleton was staying at contributed to the suicide of a nurse who transferred their call.
Mel has worked at rebuilding her career since the incident and is now working part-time for a public relations agency.
