Great British Bake Off’s Prue Leith receives second coronavirus jab and implores others to get vaccinated

Great British Bake Off judge Prue Leith has received her second dose of coronavirus vaccine.

The 80-year-old shared the joyous news with Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid on today’s Good Morning Britain just weeks after confirming she’d had her first jab.

‘I have had both jabs,’ Prue exclaimed. ‘I had my first one before Christmas. My little local health centre, Chipping Norton Health Centre, is very efficient.

‘They had all the 80s in practically before Christmas and had done. And they did the rest of us almost three weeks later, and so we are all fine.’

Prue implored viewers to get vaccinated and highlighted that doing so is ‘the only way out’ of the pandemic.

‘I think everyone should get the jab the minute they get the chance,’ she added.

Prue is one of a number of celebrities who’ve had the Covid-19 vaccine so far, including the likes of Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Billy Connolly.

She shared the news of her first dose on Twitter with a photo of a nurse administering the vaccine in her arm.

‘Who wouldn’t want immunity from #Covid19 with a painless jab??’ she penned at the time.

On Monday, Government data up to January 31 showed that over 9million people had received their first doses of the vaccine.

Based on the latest figures, an average of 407,402 first doses of vaccine would be needed each day in order to meet the Government’s target of 15 million first doses by February 15.

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
