    Weekend Today co-host Richard Wilkins has revealed his wishes for the New Year. 

    Talking to Nine Honey this week, the 66-year-old said that he wants to focus on his health in 2021.

    The veteran entertainment reporter revealed his wishes when asked by the publication about his New Year’s resolutions. 

    Dickie said he doesn’t believe in making resolutions, but wants to focus on his health. 

    ‘I stopped doing that a few years ago, but in general it would be to exercise a bit more, drink a bit less,’ Richard said.

    The star had a tough year in 2020, and was even diagnosed with coronavirus.

    He returned to his hosting duties on Weekend Today in April, after 18 days in self-isolation with COVID-19.

    In an interview with The Australian that month, Richard reflected on his battle with the illness and said he never once had a symptom of the virus.

    ‘I swear on my life, I’ve still not had a runny nose, a headache or a fever. And I’ve not had a Codral or a Nurofen. Not a thing,’ he said.

    Richard also joked that he has ‘Corona for life’ – referring to the eight cases of Corona beer friends had gifted him during his recovery.  

    He self-isolated for 18 days after testing positive for COVID-19 three times.  

    Richard went into self-isolation on March 12 shortly after it was revealed that American actor Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson tested positive for coronavirus.

    Richard had met Rita twice; once backstage at the Sydney Opera House and once during her Today Extra interview on March 9.

    He first tested positive for COVID-19 on March 15 and got the same result for two more tests until eventually getting the all-clear from NSW Health.
