Announcement: Junior – who is the eldest child of Peter Andre, 48 and ex Katie Price, 42 – shared a message with his followers that read: ‘I have tested positive for COVID’

It marks Junior’s third brush with the virus. In March 2020, Junior revealed that he was showing symptoms of coronavirus, just hours after his father expressed fears over his children contracting it.

Taking to Instagram Stories, Junior said that while he has not been diagnosed, he was making sure he was staying safe.

Junior said: ‘These aren’t easy times as we know. I am videoing this to tell you I am showing symptoms of the coronavirus. It is not me saying I have it , I am showing symptoms.

‘Everyone please stay safe these aren’t easy times like I said.’ 

Wow: The teenager boats an impressive 429,000 followers on Instagram

Third time: It marks Junior’s third brush with the virus. In March 2020, Junior revealed that he was showing symptoms of coronavirus (pictured with mum Katie last year)

In November, Junior was forced to isolate again due to a coronavirus outbreak at his school.

According to his dad, Junior was annoyed he still had to complete his lessons at home but luckily didn’t have any symptoms.

The teenager splits his time between his father and mother’s homes, as does his sister Princess Andre, 13, who Peter 48, also shares with Katie, 42.

Peter split from the former glamour model in 2009 after four years of marriage and went on to welcome Amelia, seven, and Theo, four, with his current wife Emily McDonagh, 31.

Katie is mum to Harvey, 18, from her relationship with Dwight Yorke. While she welcomed Bunny, six, and Jett, seven, with ex Kieran Hayler.

Peter himself tested positive for the respiratory virus in December, while his wife Emily – who has been working as a frontline NHS doctor during the pandemic – tested positive in June. 

As for Junior’s mum Katie, she received her first Covid vaccine this month alongside her beau Carl Woods, with both falling sick with a fever and nausea afterwards. 

Katie’s eldest son Harvey has now been fully vaccinated against the virus. The teen was rushed to hospital in February after his first dose of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine caused his temperature to sky-rocket.

He has allegedly suffered little reaction to his second dose.

 MailOnline has reached out to representatives for Junior’s father Peter for comment.
