Piers Morgan has revealed that his mum has had a "bad reaction" to the coronavirus vaccine.

The 55 year old has been eagerly waiting for his mum Gabrielle, 76, to receive the vaccine after she contracted the virus late last year.

But he has now revealed that both Gabrielle and her husband Glynne Pughe-Morgan have both been vaccinated, although his mum has developed flu-like symptoms.

He took to his ITV breakfast show Good Morning Britain on Monday to give an update on his mum and stepfather, saying the process was "efficient" and "very painless".

Piers told viewers: "They said it was very efficient, very quick, very painless, all very happy.

"My mum then got quite a bad reaction to her jab.

"I say bad, like a fluey reaction, and she's in bed. A lot of people are getting a little bit, or a little bit more reaction."

Dr Hilary Jones was on hand to explain Gabrielle's side effect, telling Piers: "Most people might get a slight reaction at the injection site so some redness, some heat, some warmth a bit of tenderness probably last a few hours. Certainly gone overnight.

"That's not uncommon at all, and that's common with any vaccination.

"The second thing people are reporting is a bit of fatigue, headache, muscle pains, that might last a bit longer. Some people getting chills and a very slight temperature.

"Up to 50 per cent people are getting fatigue for a few hours, maybe 24 hours," he continued.

Piers revealed in November that both Gabrielle and Glynne has contracted coronavirus from a member of their support bubble.
