Ruth Langsford was all smiles on Saturday when she received her COVID-19 vaccine.

Sharing the news on Instagram, the mother-of-one could be seen with a big grin on her face (despite the fact that she was wearing a face mask) as a nurse next to her administered the vaccine with a needle.

Posting a caption alongside the snap, Ruth explained that her vaccination came as a surprise, as she hadn't been expecting it until next month.

Ruth explained to her social media followers: "Thought it was a scam message at first as I wasn’t expecting to be called until March."

What's more, the veteran presenter also thanked staff at the Walton-based vaccination centre, and assured her fans that the injection "took seconds" and "was painless".
