SIR Keir Starmer has been forced to self-isolate for the fourth time after one of his children tested positive - just minutes after grilling Boris Johnson in the Commons.
The Labour leader tested negative this morning ahead of his weekly Westminster showdown with the PM, who is also in quarantine.
A spokesperson said: "One of Keir’s children tested positive for Covid this lunchtime. In line with the rules, Keir and his family will now be self-isolating.
"Keir was already doing daily tests and tested negative this morning. He will continue to take daily tests."
Sir Keir left the chamber when PMQs finished around 1pm, and within 90 minutes his spokesperson released the statement that he was self-isolating.
Today marked the first PMQs after Freedom Day, meaning more MPs were allowed on the green benches than at any time during the pandemic.
During the exchanges Sir Keir branded the PM a "super- spreader of confusion" as he tore into mixed messaging on the pingdemic.
Mr Johnson was patched in via video link from Chequers where he is self-isolating after coming into contact with infected Sajid Javid.
