Richard and Judy 'stranded in US' after flight ban

Legendary TV presenting duo Richard and Judy are reportedly left stranded in the US after the introduction of a flight ban.

Legendary presenting duo Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan have reportedly been left stranded in the United States after President Donald Trump imposed a flight ban amid the coronavirus crisis.

The former This Morning hosts were holidaying in the States when the severity of the pandemic escalated and are now unable to return to the UK for the foreseeable future due to travel restrictions.

The pair's son Jack told the Daily Mail: "They are being as stoic and upbeat as can be and figuring things out one day at a time, just like the rest of the country."

At the age of 71, Finnigan is considered to be in the government's high risk category for contracting coronavirus - an age group that have been advised to self-isolate as far as possible for the next few months.

After leaving This Morning in 2001, Richard and Judy made a return to the ITV show last year for a guest appearance and have since agreed to host the programme on a casual basis.
