Kerry Katona was upset to learn she had tested positive for coronavirus this week, meaning her Christmas will be spent in quarantine.
The singer, 40, shared a statement to social media, urging her fans to take the pandemic seriously and to follow guidelines.
Along with a crying emoji, she wrote: "Tested positive."
Kerry added: "Never felt so poorly in all my life!! Those who think this isn't real, think again!! Absolutely heartbroken! Sending love and light to all those effected [sic]."
The positive test result means Kerry will be forced to isolate for at least 10 days following the onset of her symptoms – clashing with the Christmas break.
In the comments below, Kerry's followers wished her a speedy recovery, hoping she would manage to enjoy the Christmas period despite the isolation.
One said: "Wishing you well sweetie hope you have great Christmas."
"Get well soon Kerry xx see to all that deny this is real pls pls pls take it seriously," added a second.
And a third chimed: "What a time to feel poorly, hope you feel better soon K."
Kerry had originally planned to spend her first Christmas as a bride-to-be with her fiancé Ryan Mahoney and four of her children.
Her daughter, Molly, 18, will spend the winter break in Ireland with her dad Brian McFadden, where she is currently studying at university.
Kerry made headlines last month when she urged Brits to be wary of bragging this Christmas, as many have lost their jobs during the pandemic.
Defending those who have suffered financial hardship in 2020, she said: "Before you start bragging that you've done your Christmas shopping please remember some parents have lost their jobs and don't know how they're going to buy presents for their kids."
The mum-of-five also pointed out thousands of Brits have lost loved ones throughout the year, meaning this Christmas will be a time of sadness for many.
She continued: "Some people have lost family members and Christmas won't be the same.
"Some people don't do online and now have no idea when they'll be able to shop.
"Some people are fighting for their lives with COVID and Christmas shopping is the last thing on their minds."
Wrapping up her message, Kerry finished: "So remember, nobody likes a show-off and who's around your tree is more important than ever rather than what's under it."
