'I Feel Like I Dodged A Bullet' - Says Idris Elba

Idris Elba has declared he feels 'very lucky to be alive', after he and his wife Sabrina Dhowre tested positive for novel coronavirus earlier this year.

In the earlier stages of the pandemic this spring, the 47-year-old heartthrob was forced to quarantine in New Mexico after discovering he'd contracted COVID-19, a virus which his American wife Sabrina, 30, later caught.

And in an interview with BAFTA, the Luther star admitted he was counting his blessings, as he said: 'I do feel like I dodged a bullet – I’m very thankful to be alive.'
