‘I have both Covid and Influenza A. Good times,’ she sarcastically added.

She spoke of how the illness was affecting her both physically and mentally.

‘I was not prepared for how awful influenza A actually is. If you haven’t had the flu jab, get it. You’re just so uncomfortable you can’t even sleep. And this is 24 hours on.’

Mel also uploaded a photo of four different types of flu medication she was taking.

Mel has had a difficult month thanks to her ongoing battle with Endometriosis, a condition where cells grow outside the uterus lining.

Last week, Mel revealed she was experiencing horrific pain after getting her period – a common symptom of Endometriosis.

‘Thanks to my Endometriosis my next 24hrs will be painful with a period from hell,’ she wrote next to a photo of herself looking miserable on the couch.

‘I stay on the contraceptive pill (even though I don’t need it) to help mask the pain and to only have a period every 3-months. I can normally time it to fall on a weekend and here we are, it’s the couch and a wheatbag vibe over here,’ she wrote next to a photo of herself looking miserable on the couch.

‘It’s important to share these moments and normalize conversations about periods and Endo… I’ve encountered way too many people that feel awkward having the conversation or partners that actually express disgust. It’s a normal part of a females body and life.’ she added.

Mel is the former co-host of 2Day FM's Hot30 Countdown program (here with ex co-host Mike Christian)

The pair were at the center of an international controversy in 2012.

One of their prank calls to the English hospital which then-pregnant Kate Middleton was staying at contributed to the suicide of a nurse who transferred their call.

Mel has worked at rebuilding her career since the incident and is now working part-time for a public relations agency.
