"2nd Vaccine done!! SO grateful" Ruth wrote. Praising the NHS staff, she penned: "well organized, friendly and reassuring… and it was BUSY!"

Despite being fully vaccinated, Ruth will have to continue following social distancing requirements in line with the governments roadmap plan to ease the UK out of lockdown.

Some of Ruth's followers were divided in the comments given the 61-year-old appeared to have her second dose earlier than many people older than her. The vaccine is prioritised for people over the age of 65, but the Loose Women presenter revealed she was called early back in February after receiving a message from the NHS.

Many shared Ruth's excitement for hitting the major health milestone: "Congratulations! I felt such freedom when I got my second jab" said one fan, whilst another sweetly shared: "Fantastic Ruth! So happy you're vaccinated fully!".
