Corrie's Sally Dynevor, 57, 'so grateful' to NHS as she receives her Covid vaccine
Sally Dynevor has told of her gratitude after receiving the first of her two coronavirus vaccine jabs.
The actress, 57, who plays Sally Metcalfe on Coronation Street, was among the 800 people to have received their jabs in the north-west yesterday.
She tweeted: "Thank you so much to our NHS. Had my vaccine and I'm so grateful. Thank you for everything you do."
This comes after her co-star, Jimmi Harkishin - who plays Dev Alahan on the Cobbles - urged communities in the UK to get the jab amid a number of conspiracy theories about the jab's contents.
Some have wrongly claimed that it contains meat and alcohol - which are banned in a number of religions.
"We are living in such difficult times," the actor said, "but Covid-19 has been affecting Asian communities disproportionately.
"Whatever the reasons for that, whether they are social or medical, it is very important for us to firstly follow the guidelines and secondly embrace the vaccination programme.
"I know there has been an awful lot of misinformation, rumour and speculation about the vaccine, but I can't stress how important the vaccine is in the battle against COVID.
"For the sake of yourself and your families, when you get contacted please please go for the vaccination."
Meanwhile, Sally has spoken of her pride for daughter Phoebe after she landed the lead role in Netlfix's biggest show ever, Bridgerton.
Phoebe plays Daphne Bridgerton in the show that has surpassed Henry Cavill's magic and monsters epic The Witcher on the streaming service.
And of it has come another possible name for the role of James Bond once Daniel Craig hangs up the tux.
Regé-Jean Page, who plays the Duke of Hastings, has proved his heartthrob status and rumours have been swirling that film bosses have eyed him up for the role.
And he's got some backing in the shape of Bridgerton co-star Adjoa Andoh, who reckons he'd fit the role down to a tee.
