Jamie Oliver praises wife Jools as he reveals she has ‘deeply scary’ long COVID | UK News

Jamie Oliver has praised his wife Jools after revealing she has been suffering from long COVID for two years.

The celebrity chef, 47, told the Daily Mail Weekend magazine his wife had been “really affected” by the virus.

He said: “She’s had bad COVID and long COVID so she’s been really affected by it, sadly.

“She’s okay but still not what she wants to be. It’s been two years, she finds it deeply scary.”

Oliver, who rose to fame on cookery show The Naked Chef, said his wife, a childrenswear designer, had been “an absolute superstar” over the past two years.

The pair have seen specialist medical professionals but her symptoms have not eased as the condition is still being learned about, he said.

“We’re all over Harley Street like a rash but no one really knows anything. The data on long COVID is still piling in. She’s been an absolute superstar,” he said.

This month, experts from King’s College London said there seem to be three “subtypes” of the condition, each with their own set of symptoms.

Sufferers can experience fatigue, brain fog, shortness of breath, muscle ache and heart palpitations.

Oliver and his wife have been together since they were 18, married for 22 years and have five children together.

Speaking about their relationship, he said: “We went to London with nothing but dreams and aspirations. Luckily, we were able to solidify our relationship before it all kicked off. Then we did it together. It was exciting.

“When I first started going out with Jools, she was like, ‘I’ll never be able to have kids’. She had polycystic ovaries. But here we are with five.”

The Olivers’ children are Poppy, Daisy, Petal, Buddy and River.

The chef added: “I haven’t done teenage boys yet but I found teenage girls very hard. I tried to be an on-point dad, I’d give myself nine out of 10 for effort.

“Then the minute they get to 13, you’re dumped. You’re outside looking in. All you want is a few hugs a day and to be appreciated but there’s a lot of chemistry going on.

“You never get the kid back after 13, they completely change. Just when you start to get them back, they’re off to university. So it’s like a bereavement.”

In 2020, Jools revealed she had a miscarriage during lockdown and the couple spoke about losing “five little stars in the sky”.

Man in court charged with murder and attempted murder of his wife after firearms incident on Isle of Skye | UK News

A 39-year-old man has appeared in court charged with murder as well as the attempted murder of his wife and two other people following a series of firearm incidents in northwest Scotland.

Finlay MacDonald, from Skye, appeared at Inverness Sheriff Court on Friday and did not enter a plea.

MacDonald was committed for further examination and remanded in custody.

Officers were called to a property in the Tarskavaig area of Skye shortly before 9am on Wednesday, where a 32-year-old woman was found with serious injuries and taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Glasgow.

About half an hour later, gun shots were reported at another property about eight miles away in the Teangue area of the island, where 47-year-old John MacKinnon was pronounced dead by emergency services.

Pensioner slit throat of wife in suicide pact that went wrong, court hears | UK News

A pensioner slit the throat of his wife of more than 40 years in a suicide pact went wrong, a court was told.

Police were greeted with the “extraordinary scene” of Dyanne Mansfield, 71, slumped dead in a chair at the bottom of the couple’s garden backing on to open fields in Hale, Greater Manchester.

Mrs Mansfield had bled heavily from a 16cm “gaping incised wound” and her windpipe had been severed.

Three knives and a lump hammer were found near her body.

They had responded to a 999 call on the morning of 24 March last year from her husband, Graham Mansfield, 73, who was discovered lying seriously injured in the kitchen.

He told officers he killed his wife at about 9pm the day before and then tried to take his own life but it had “all gone wrong”, Manchester Crown Court heard.

Together forever

Mrs Mansfield had been suffering from cancer and the court was told the pair “had a perfect relationship and wanted to remain together for the rest of their lives”.

Opening the case, prosecutor David Temkin QC said: “He explained what he had done was in pursuance of a ‘pact’ made with his wife.”

He said Mansfield, who denies murder and manslaughter, does not dispute he intended to kill his wife but claims his reason for doing so provides him with a defence.

Also discovered at the scene nearby were two bricks on top of a plastic wallet containing a note written by Mansfield for the police.

“We have decided to take our own lives,” it said, giving instructions on where to find his house keys and how to contact his sister, the court heard.

‘Don’t get upset’

Another note written by Manfield, addressed to his family, was found in an envelope on the dining room table.

It read: “We are sorry to burden you with this but there is no other way.

“When Dyanne was diagnosed with cancer, we made a pact. I couldn’t bear to live without Dyanne and as the months progressed and as things got worse, it only reinforced our decision that the time has arrived.

“We hope you all understand.

“Don’t get too upset. We have had a wonderful and happy life together.”

Mansfield was arrested on suspicion of murder at the scene and was captured on police body-worn cameras explaining how he killed his wife and then tried to kill himself in the garden and then in the house.

Mr Temkin said: “He repeatedly expressed frustration at having failed to kill himself. He said that he just wanted to die.”

Mansfield was taken for surgery at Manchester Royal Infirmary, where he said he and his wife made the suicide pact on the first day of her diagnosis in September 2020.

Devoted to his wife

When interviewed by police, Mansfield said life had been “turned upside down” in the preceding six months. Mrs Mansfield’s disease had spread rapidly and quickly reached stage four.

Mansfield searched the internet for ways to end life, Mr Temkin told the jury, with the pair settling on the garden as the “venue” at the suggestion of Mrs Mansfield.

Police spoke to the couple’s family, their friends and neighbours.

Mr Temkin said: “All of them spoke about the defendant’s unswerving devotion to her.”

No record of her wishes

However, he added an “important feature” of the case was there was no record of Mrs Mansfield’s wishes.

“The defence has to satisfy you on the balance of probabilities that a genuine suicide pact existed,” he said.

He said Mansfield had also pleaded not guilty to the alternative count of manslaughter because he maintained “his actions were lovingly undertaken through duress of circumstances or necessity for the purpose of avoiding any further severe pain and suffering”.

The trial continues on Tuesday.
