In the video, Oprah, who has been with Stedman since 1986, told some of her 18.2million Instagram followers: ‘Stedman is at the guest house. You all know I had çç late last year and you can still hear the raspiness in my throat sometimes… 

‘And I just got off antibiotics last week and so Stedman was late to the party. Stedman didn’t arrive from Chicago until Thursday and he was speaking in St. Louis on Saturday and he’s been on planes.’

Oprah admitted that she was quick to make clear plans when he returned to diminish any chances of contracting the virus. 

She said: ‘He was like, ‘What’s the procedure for coming home?’ And I was like, ‘You ain’t coming in here and sleeping in my bed. It doesn’t work that way…

‘Social distancing doesn’t mean you can go sleep in a bed with someone after you got off American Airlines.’ We can not play those games.’

In the meantime, she revealed their plan: ‘I leave food on the doorstep…He’s happy to have me safe. We just take him dinner and we take him breakfast.’

Oprah has been hitting headlines in the midst of the pandemic after she spoke to Idris Elba and his wife Sabrina about their diagnosis. 

In an interview on her new Apple TV+ series Oprah Talks, the couple opened up about being quarantined together in New Mexico, where Elba’s latest film was in production.

‘Actually, I found out this morning, Oprah, that I tested positive,’ Sabrina told the host on Facetime on Saturday.

Idris told Oprah, he ‘hasn’t witnessed any major symptoms’ and is ‘feeling okay.’

‘It’s interesting and worrying that people are possibly carrying this disease and are seemingly okay, but can spread it easily,’ he said of not being symptomatic.

Sabrina, who also feels healthy, said: ‘I don’t feel anything that would come to what people would now expect to be a symptom of coronavirus, which is really strange. It might change in the coming weeks, and we’ll keep everyone updated.’

To stay entertained in isolation, the pair are focusing on the ‘silver lining’ of spending quality time together and playing video games, chess and ‘staying creative.’
