Beth recently had to take a few weeks off work when she tested positive for COVID-19 after experiencing mild symptoms.
She said, “I knew I had it as soon as I started coughing. A hospital tested me because I’m on the front line … I felt like I had the flu, so I wasn’t too bad.
The nurse was able to recover at home and is now back to normal and “happy to be back at work to take care of everyone”.

Beth told the publication that she finds it harder to impress two-year-olds in her ward than the show’s boss Simon Cowell.
The down-to-earth singer said, “Honestly, there are two-year-olds who will cry their eyes as soon as I start singing. So yes, it’s really more difficult to impress them than Simon!
