The presenter, who lives in Sheffield, visited Walton Hospital for his jab on Wednesday, December 8 and took to Twitter afterwards to praise the staff.

He said: “Booster jabbed! Thanks to Dr John Pryce and his brilliant, friendly staff at the Walton Vaccination Centre in Chesterfield."

Every eligible adult in the UK should be offered a booster by the end of January to increase protection against the Omicron variant.
