Holly Willoughby has revealed she has received her first dose of the coronavirus vaccine — but sparked a war with her This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield.

The 40 year old excitedly told viewers that she had gone and had her jab after Wednesday's show, and received a badge and sticker for attending the appointment.

At the top of Thursday's episode of the hit ITV daytime show, Phillip said to Holly: "We're excited here in the studio because you've been done."

Holly said: "I've been done, I am fully vaccinated. Yesterday I went for my vaccine and I stood in the queue and I went in, it was totally seamless, all fine.

"It's quite an emotional experience isn't it? Because you've been talking about it for so long and you go in there and it's everybody around you, there's sort of a real atmosphere that we're all finally getting that vaccination that we've wanted, and you're sort on the road to being completely protected so, yeah, it was amazing."

Phillip asked: "So that's your first one?," with Holly clarifying: "That's my first one, yeah, I've got to wait a while. You've been done, haven't you?"

The silver fox responded: "I've had mine, yeah, which was once again so unbelievably efficient and you're sort of in then you're out."


Holly joked: "Shake it all about!," with Phillip laughing: "I shook it all about, I was so thrilled I did, actually, as a matter of fact. All the way down the corridor on the way out!"

Discussing her lack of symptoms, Holly announced: "But I feel fine! I was sitting here yesterday and they're going, 'Oh you’re doing it on a Wednesday, you might get a bit of a temperature, you might get a bit of this', I feel fine.

"I feel positively let down, I'm like where's mine? But I did get a badge."

Phillip exclaimed: "I didn't get a badge!," with Holly teasing him: "I got a badge! I got a sticker and I wore it all day."

Turning to the show's studio crew, Phillip asked: "In here, who's been vaccinated?," with show regular Matthew Wright saying: "I've been vaccinated but no badge. Very nice lady who I had a selfie with but no badge."

Holly joked: "I feel a poll coming up… #Badge, #NoBadge," with chef Gok Wan chiming: "I got a badge. Framed it, love mine."

Holly also took to Instagram to reveal her happiness at having the jab, writing to her followers: "Had my vaccine yesterday… straight forward and seamless… felt super emotional (it's been tough right?).

"Thank you to our incredible @nhsengland for everything… for being there when you need them most. We are so lucky to live in a country that has a system that has rolled out vaccines so successfully…Back to work today with a spring in my step…"
