One half of the famous double act Chuckle Brothers, Paul released a video of himself on social media explaining that he was just getting over COVID-19 and urged people to stay at home to help prevent the spread.
More than 22,000 people in the UK have now tested positive for the virus, with 1,993 of these in Scotland.
Government advice for those developing symptoms is to self-isolate, only seeking medical attention if symptoms worsen.
The Chuckle Brothers, made up of Paul and his brother Barry, were most famous for their slapstick children’s show Chucklevision.
The pair, real names Barry and Paul Elliot, continued performing together until the death of Barry in 2018.
