Ricky Tomlinson is concerned that he, like his younger brother David, will succumb to Covid.

Ricky, a fan of the Royle Family, was heartbroken when his brother David died last year at the age of 79, and he’s concerned that his own health issues make him a big risk for Covid.

Ricky Tomlinson, from the Royle Family, is concerned that he, like his younger brother, will succumb to Covid.

When David died last year at the age of 79, he was devastated, and the actor is concerned that his own weakened immune system puts him at risk.

Ricky has been shielding for long periods of time since the pandemic hit early last year.

“I haven’t taken any chances,” the actor told the Brinkwire on Sunday.

My wife, Rita, has been keeping a close eye on me.

Due to Covid, we’ve had to be extremely cautious.

“I have a compromised immune system as a result of some medication I’m taking for a skin condition, so I have to be extremely cautious.”

Ricky, 82, has been through hell as he has watched his family suffer from Covid’s effects in recent months.

“I lost a younger brother,” he added.

“It was also my older brother who got it, and he got it bad.”

Thankfully, he overcame it.”

Ricky, who played Jim in The Royle Family, has taken a number of precautions to avoid contracting the virus.

He agreed to star in a new film on the condition that he would be subjected to strict set restrictions.

“I worked on a film called The Witch-finders, and the precautions they took were incredible,” Ricky said.

“Every morning and every night, we were put to the test.”

“They went above and beyond to ensure that everyone was safe.”

Ricky has been dealing with a variety of health issues for a long time.

He underwent a quadruple bypass in 2012, and he considers himself fortunate to be alive.

He’s also had cataracts removed from both eyes and has suffered from asthma over the years.

“I’d be dead if it weren’t for the NHS,” he said.

They owe me my life.”
