Yet another celebrity has been diagnosed with swine flu! The latest person to come down with the virus Melissa Rycroft.

She said in a statement, "I am indeed recovering from a bout of the H1N1 flu virus. Like most people who become infected, I thought I had a mild case of the common flu, but when my symptoms exacerbated, I immediately went to the hospital where I was diagnosed with H1N1 and given the proper medications to cure the infection."

Melissa tells Us Weekly that her fiancé Ty Strickland’s mother, who is a nurse, encouraged her to see a doctor.

Melissa says, "I want to stress to people how easy it is to battle this flu when you take the proper steps such as seeking the care of a doctor.

"I'm a clear case that by paying diligent attention to your health, it's easy to overcome this illness and be healthy again."

We wish her the best in recovering!
