Ben Shephard has shared a rare photo of himself with wife Annie after having received his first Covid-19 vaccination.

The 46 year old, who recently said he'd only sign up to Strictly if the fee is high enough to pay for his divorce settlement, took to his Instagram feed to post side-by-side snaps of his day.

On the left side, the Good Morning Britain host could be seen sitting in a pair of blue jeans, white trainers and a grey T-shirt with one sleeve rolled up as a nurse administered the jab into his arm.

The TV presenter donned a blue face mask to ensure he keeps safe amid the ongoing pandemic and looked off to the side during the appointment.

It comes as Ben recently appeared emotional as he discussed Kate Garraway's husband Derek Draper returning home over a year after he was hospitalised.

Derek was admitted to hospital in March 2020 after contracting coronavirus. He was put into an induced coma to help his recovery and woke up for the first time in October last year to tell doctors he was in pain.
