Coronavirus has its red letter day
In the second episode of Cabin Fever. As 1.5m people wait to receive letters classing them as High Risk in the fight against coronavirus we find out if Octavia made it safely to Somerset after her care package collapsed in London when it became impossible for her PAs to travel through the city.

Presented by Beth Rose, from her kitchen table. A full transcript is available here.
