Tom, 63, had been filming Baz Luhrmann’s as-yet untitled Elvis Presley biopic for Warner Bros, in which he will play the singer’s manager Colonel Tom Parker.

Following his diagnosis, production on the film was halted.

There are currently 375 confirmed cases of the virus in Australia.

Tom had previously offered thanks to “the helpers” while he was in hospital.

He shared a photo of a stuffed kangaroo and koala and a piece of toast thickly spread with Australian staple Vegemite.

Tom and Rita are not the only high-profile stars to test positive for Covid-19.

On Monday, Idris Elba told fans he had the virus, but said he feels “OK” and does not have any symptoms.

Other prominent figures to be diagnosed include, Game Of Thrones actor Kristofer Hivju, Bond star Olga Kurylenko, Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta and Chelsea footballer Callum Hudson-Odoi.
