This has seen their FA Cup clash at Bournemouth on Saturday postponed – and means TV and radio star Wright is stuck indoors with his stunning other half.
Wright’s agent Jonathan Shalit confirmed to SunSport: “Mark is of course following all guidelines.
“Consequently he as had to postpone his daily BBC 2 fitness show, Workout the Wright Way, by a week, which was due to start next Monday.
“Also will be broadcasting his daily Heart evening radio show from home, which he did last night until, he is allowed out.”
Wright, who celebrates his birthday today, will now have to self-isolate for seven days as per government rules.
This gave him time to appear remotely as a guest on hit ITV show Loose Women where he put on an exercise class for the panel.
He is promoting a one-month plan to get people fit during lockdown.
The 34-year-old made his professional football debut earlier this month for Crawley when he came on as a late sub in the stunning 3-0 FA Cup win against Premier League Leeds.

Their next match in the competition against Bournemouth is set to be rearranged for Tuesday, subject to the results of two rounds of tests beforehand.
Earlier this month Wright revealed how his family had been living their own Covid nightmare.
His father Mark Snr, mother Carol and two uncles had all contracted the virus in what he described as ‘the scariest week of my life’ over New Year.
Wright explained how his dad ‘wasn’t the same mentally’ while one of his uncles remains in hospital.
