On Wednesday, the comedian posted a hilarious update to Instagram about working from with his girlfriend.

‘It’s day something of quarantine and my girlfriend has to work from home because otherwise she’ll die,’ he said in the clip.

‘And it’s very nerve racking because now she sees how f***ing lazy I am during the day. I had to hide under the pretence that “Oh no, I’ll work, probably wake up around 8 or 8:30 and I’ll just do some writing, go to the gym”. 

‘And now she’s here, I’ve got to do some writing and go to the gym and it’s f***ing s***e. I’ve got to hike to masturbate!’  

Daniel’s girlfriend can be heard in the background chuckling at the joke.

‘Do you know how many time I’ve told this woman that the reason I couldn’t do the washing up was that I’m busy all day? That’s gone! Can’t lie about that anymore’ he continued. 

‘She comes back I’m like “I’ve been busy all day, can you make my dinner? I couldn’t”. But – gone! I hate this disease, more than anyone, I would say.’
