Peter Andre's wife Emily, who is an NHS doctor, has confirmed she has received her first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine after visiting Epsom Hospital in Surrey last week.

Giving fans a look into the hospital visit on YouTube, 47-year-old Peter - who has recently recovered from the highly infectious virus - joined his wife, 31, as she received her jab.

The junior doctor wanted to encourage their fans whilst highlighting the hard work health care professionals are putting into the ongoing vaccination drive. "I feel like I'm part of something really important," she explained. "I feel grateful really that I'm able to get the vaccine and that's why I wanted to document it to show people doctors and NHS workers are getting this done and we're not scared.

"We just want to protect other people, protect our patients, protect our colleagues so that everyone can carry on doing the good work they're doing basically."

In pictures from Epsom Hospital, Pete and Emily could be seen looking relaxed and cheery behind their face masks.

Emily revealed that she "probably was exposed to [the virus] in the last 28 days", due to her husband. "But I didn't get any symptoms and I was testing myself twice weekly and I was negative on all occasions," she said.

The mum-of-two then added: "I think people are worried about this because it's something new but it's just another vaccine and not only that, it's vaccinating against something which is incredibly important to vaccinate against. The reason we are all in lockdown at the moment is because of coronavirus so we need to try to come together and tackle it as one."

Last week, the couple opened up about their "unpleasant" individual battles with coronavirus and detailed how the virus has left them with lingering side effects. "It's quite unbelievable because everyone has different symptoms," Peter said on Good Morning Britain.

Emily added that even she didn't think Peter had the virus, saying: "It just wasn't textbook how it presented, it was a lesson to both of us to be vigilant of your symptoms."

Talking about his symptoms, Peter went on: "I didn't have a temperature, I had body aches, I had a cough but it wasn't as persistent as what I had been told but it was persistent enough that I went and got a test. The key thing about that was, once I went and got the test, we self-isolated for ten days so we knew once we got that positive result that in that ten days we could not infect anyone else."
