Earlier today a fake BBC account had falsely tweeted that Daniel Radcliffe, known as Harry Potter in the fantasy book and film series, Harry Potter, had contracted Covid-19. And just for good measure, we checked Snopes, who rated this as "false". 

The account (@BBCNewsTonight) has since been suspended, presumably for spreading fake news.  

That wasn't before, of course, the internet bought it hook, line, and sinker.
