Ruth was seen rocking a face mask and a black T-shirt with the word, ‘love’ emblazoned on the front as a nurse planted a needle into her arm. 

The Loose Women presenter penned on Instagram post: ‘JUST HAD MY VACCINE!! Feel SO grateful. Thought it was a scam message at first as I wasn’t expecting to be called until March! 

‘Thank you everybody, staff & volunteers, at the vaccination centre in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey…a quick, well organised and very friendly experience. The jab took seconds and was painless.

‘Thank you @stephanieshervington for being so lovely….you & your colleagues are doing an amazing job. Another step forward to being able to see my Mum again I hope.’

Legendary rocker Ozzy Osborne, 72, said he was ‘relieved’ after receiving his first dose earlier in February. 

Renowned broadcaster and naturalist, Sir David Attenborough, 94, received the Oxford/AstraZeneca jab, in January according to the Sun.

A source said to the newspaper: ‘Sir David was always keen to get vaccinated, and support both the current programme and the NHS.

‘Of course, as well as his family and loved ones, millions of animal fans across the globe will be delighted – this is brilliant news.’

The national treasure, who recently returned to our television screens with a new five-part BBC series of A Perfect Planet, earlier told the Telegraph he was keen to get the jab, saying: ‘At 94, I think I’m entitled!’

However, the veteran natural historian previously admitted that the prospect of having a jab made him a little squeamish.
