Television presenter Ruth Langsford has said she is overjoyed after receiving the first dosage of the coronavirus vaccine.

Taking to her social media pages, the presenter who was born in Singapore proudly shared a picture of herself the moment the vaccine was administered into her arm.

An emotional Ruth penned: "JUST HAD MY VACCINE!!

"VACCINE!! Feel SO grateful. Thought it was a scam message at first as I wasn't expecting to be called until March!"

She went on to say: "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."

After thanking the "lovely" NHS staff for doing "an amazing job" Ruth added: "Another step forward to being able to see my Mum again I hope. Thank you @nhsengland @astrazeneca @oxford_uni #covid #vaccine."

"I've seen my mum through a window, I phone her all the time but I haven't physically touched her."

Despite her heartache, Ruth acknowledged that she understands why such a ban is in place until people have been vaccinated.
