​Jennifer Aniston Surprises Nurse Who Has Contracted Coronavirus

​Jennifer Aniston Surprises Nurse Who Has Contracted Coronavirus

A nurse who had contracted COVID-19 and was being virtually interviewed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! was left stunned when Jennifer Aniston popped up in their video chat to say hello.

Kimball Fairbanks, from St. George, Utah, was explaining to show host Jimmy what her 'mild' symptoms of coronavirus felt like, how she was being furloughed for two weeks whilst she recovered and how she was having to keep separated from her kids.

As the pair chatted, Jimmy then said to Kimball: "We wanted to cheer you up a little bit so we'd like you to meet somebody, her name is Jennifer."

He continued: "Jennifer if you're joining us here, please say hello to Kimball".

The Friends star then gatecrashed the video chat screen waving and Kimball looked visibly shocked, barely even able to say hi. We mean, you would be pretty stunned to suddenly be on a face to face call with Rachel Green.

After recovering from her shock, Kimball went on to explain that she'd been living on mostly food that had been delivered to her since falling ill earlier in the week, which cued Jen to deliver a second surprise.

She explained that on-demand delivery company Postmates would be sending Kimball a $10,000 (approx. £8,166) gift card, as well as cards for all the other nurses on her hospital floor.

Kimball certainly won't be going hungry whilst in isolation that's for sure!

Jimmy then joked: "But you have to use it all one shot," suggesting the nurse had to put in one single $10,000 order, although laughed it off saying he was just having her on.

Of course the amount on the card is HUGE but a nurse who is putting herself at risk everyday to save people suffering extreme side effects of coronavirus couldn't be more deserving, right?

Jimmy confirmed it by adding: "On behalf of all of us, I think Jen said it very well, we're very very grateful for what you and all these healthcare workers are doing.

"It is so far above and beyond it really is unbelievable, thank you so much Kimball for this and we really hope you feel better very soon."

Now we just wish we were key workers, we are SO jealous she got to meet Jennifer Aniston, even if it was virtually.
