Jane also spoke on the show about receiving her second dose of the coronavirus vaccine. She implored anyone who could to get vaccinated to do so, explaining: "I'm lucky, I didn't have any reaction to it, it certainly didn't hurt!"

The actress explained that even though she'd gotten the second dose, she would still be following coronavirus restrictions, like wearing masks and socially distancing.

"Things don't go back to normal just because you've had the vaccine," she said. "You can still spread it or pick it up."
