Jacqueline Jossa’s hubby Dan Osborne refuses Covid vaccine after Portugal trip

Dan Osborne has told fans he will not be taking the coronavirus vaccine and won't let his and Jacqueline Jossa's kids have it either.

The former TOWIE star, 29, shares two children with the EastEnders babe, Ella, six, and Mia, two, and he has a seven-year-old son Teddy from a past relationship.

And the father-of-three has slammed the government's vaccine rollout as he returns from a holiday in Portugal, which has just been moved into the UK's amber list.

Taking to Instagram, the reality star said: "I've said it from day one. People are going to have a go at me, but the whole thing is about money. The whole damn thing.

"I've had hundreds, maybe thousands of messages about kids getting the vaccination.

"Personally that s*** isn't even going in me – never mind my kids."

He went on: "People, do your research, it's not good."

Seemingly expecting backlash, he added: "That's just my opinion. It's my Instagram – I should be able to say what I want."

Dan previously described the coronavirus vaccine rollout as a "zombie apocalypse".

Back in March, when Matt Hancock suggested a third injection might be needed to combat new variants that the vaccines don't work with.

Dan told his 1.1million Instagram followers: "This is just something else. Third vaccine jab on its way? Wow! Welcome to the zombie apocalypse. It's like a Hollywood blockbuster.

"Have you ever heard so much bulls*** in your life? How they're getting away with this I have no idea."

Currently, more than 40% of the UK population has been fully vaccinated, while more than 66.7million doses have been given so far, meaning more than 40m people have had at least one of the vaccination injections.

With lockdowns and people getting vaccinated, the number of Covid cases and deaths has dramatically dropped since the start of the year.

The UK recently launched step two of its roadmap out of lockdown because of the success of measurements to combat the pandemic.

However guidelines are still changing, and Portugal, where Dan has just been on holiday, will move to the amber list on Tuesday, June 8.

That means, from Tuesday, those arriving in the UK from Portugal must quarantine at home for 10 days and take two Covid tests after returning.

At the moment, plans to completely lift lockdown in the UK on June 21 is reportedly up in the air.

There are reports that the government is discussing plans to keep social distancing in hospitality venues, the advice to work from home and the use of masks on public transport in place following the golden date of June 21.

Meanwhile, it's reported that people aged over 25 will be invited for the vaccination from next week.
