Junior Andre has revealed he symptoms he has been experiencing since catching coronavirus, adding that he ‘doesn’t want to die’ despite insisting he didn’t have a ‘severe’ case.
The 15-year-old, who is the son of Katie Price and Peter Andre, revealed last week that he had tested positive for coronavirus and the family are now in self-isolation.
He took to Instagram Live to answer questions from fans on how he is feeling, including whether he is worried about dying.
Junior responded: ‘Don’t manifest it. Listen, if it happens it happens. But I know God wants me to live my life to the finish, so I’m not gonna die from Covid and if I do, I do. I don’t wanna die.’
He admitted he was confused why he was displaying symptoms as he thought that only happened in adults and not children.
‘The first few days, my head was the worst,’ he revealed. ‘My head was banging so much. I dunno how I got symptoms, because I’m a child, I’m 15. But my head was banging, my body was aching, my throat was fine.

‘And then all of a sudden my body’s sort of stopped aching – it aches sometimes – my head still bangs but not as much but for some reason my throat is so sore. It’s killing me, I don’t know why.
‘It’s not part of the symptoms I don’t think, but maybe I’ve got something else with Covid. Yeah, I have Covid. I’ve got what’s it called? Like a week left.
‘Yeah, I’ve got Covid. And for some reason I have, like, symptoms. Normally minors don’t get symptoms. It’s not severe… it’s just annoying.’
Junior admitted he didn’t know where he had caught coronavirus, joking: ‘Guys, if I die, just know that you’re all loved, OK? I could die. No, no, no, I’m joking. I mean, I could…’

He and his dad Peter, 48, stepmum Emily, 31, and his sister Princess, 13, have been isolating until Junior is over the infection, along with Peter and Emily’s children, Amelia, six, and Theo, three.
Emily recently gave a glimpse at what the family had been up to in quarantine, sharing some sweet snaps of Amelia and Theo baking a cake for the family.
Princess and Junior split their time between their mum and dad’s house usually, but Katie, 42, has had to be extra careful around her own mother Amy amid the pandemic due to her terminal lung condition.
Amy has had to shield throughout the pandemic due to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, which causes the lungs to harden and breathing to become more difficult over time.
