"Recorded this last week 9 days after my Covid hospitalisation," Colin wrote.

"I'm getting there but this is real and affects us all. #covid19 #vaccine take a moment of self care and please watch this."

Thankfully, the actor appears to now be on the mend.

On Sunday (January 31), Colin tweeted again to thank fans for their "kind thoughts and best wishes", urging them to 'look after themselves' and keep an eye out for symptoms several days after infection.

"Thank you for your kind thoughts and best wishes," he wrote.

"Hope my story helps someone. Be aware that between day 10-14 Covid can often switch on the inflammation, so as much as they say you’re ok please be aware it takes its time and is constantly changing. Look after yourselves."
