Harry Potter star Jessie Cave has confirmed that her baby is out of hospital after testing positive for COVID-19.

The comedian, who played Lavender Brown in the movie franchise, revealed earlier this week that her son Abraham 'Bam' Benjamin – who she welcomed in October – was in hospital after contracting the virus.

Jessie has now told fans on Instagram that her baby boy is "home now", as she shared a series of photos and clips from the hospital.

"Baby is home now," she wrote. "Thank you for all the well wishes and messages of support. Be safe everybody amazing care from everybody at Chelsea & Westminster #nhsheroes."

In her previous post, Jessie said that Bam was "doing well" and was being looked after by "vigilant and cautious" doctors and nurses.

"I watched the news about lockdown from an isolated room in hospital," she said at the time. "Poor baby is COVID positive. He's okay and doing well but they are being vigilant and cautious, thankfully. This strain is super powerful and contagious so I do hope that people take extra care in the coming weeks."
