He contracted Covid last week following his fiancée Laura Byrne’s diagnosis during a family car trip to Queensland.
And on Monday, The Bachelor’s Matty ‘J’ Johnson revealed his symptoms in a video shared to his Instagram as his family continue their isolation at home.
‘My symptoms for Covid were…started off with a bit of a sore throat, bit of a blocked nose, and then just a bit of a head cold,’ Matt, 34, told his followers in the clip.

‘In the mornings, I’d have aches and pains…come good by the middle of the day, and by night time, I’d feel super exhausted.’
Matt explained that ‘day five,’ which was Christmas Day, was the ‘worst day’ for him as he was ‘horizontal’ by the end of the night and completely fatigued.
‘Now I feel I’ve turned a corner,’ the former reality TV star said on a lighter note.

‘I still have a bit of a blocked nose, bit congested, but overall I feel much, much better.’
Matt then pointed out that the main difference between his symptoms and his fiancée Laura Byrne’s symptoms was that she has lost her sense of smell and he hadn’t.
He also revealed that the ‘biggest mystery’ for them was that their 10-month-old daughter Lola doesn’t have the virus and appears ‘immune’ to Covid, while their eldest daughter Marlie, two, had the virus.

Laura explained in a post on Christmas Eve that she discovered her positive Covid result during a car trip to Queensland with Matty and their two daughters.
Laura had driven the car six hours north from Sydney to see Matty’s family for Christmas before finding out about her diagnosis, and was subsequently forced to turn the car around and head home.
‘Guess who drove six hours in a car with two kids, a dog and Cocomelon on repeat only to find out that they have Covid…and then had to drive another six hours home?!!’ the podcaster asked her followers on Instagram.
