Dame Joan Collins has revealed that she has been given the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine.
The 87-year-old actress has previously admitted that she has found lockdown restrictions an affront "to my civil rights, my human rights, my rights to live as a civilised human being and not in a draconian society".
Due to her age, Dame Joan was among the first to become eligible for the new two-dose coronavirus vaccines and in an Instagram post this weekend, she shared the news that she has received her first jab of the new Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine.
Alongside a picture of her being injected, she wrote: "Delighted to get @astrazeneca @ouhospitals #vaccine yesterday morning at the @nhsenglandldn Bloomsbury surgery - thank you Mr. @rajgill2585 and @dr_ammarahughes for a painless and seamless procedure! Same day as our Queen! #honoured #registernow"
Around 1.5 million people have now received the vaccine in the UK, although the government hopes to grow that number to 15 million by the middle of next month.
