Prue Leith has received her COVID-19 vaccination
Prue Leith has received her COVID-19 vaccination.
The 'Great British Bake Off' star took to Twitter to reveal she had the "painless jab" on Tuesday morning (15.12.20).
She wrote on Twitter: "Who wouldn't want immunity from #Covid19 with a painless jab?? #vaccine (sic)"
Prue was also filmed having the vaccine and in the video, she can be heard saying: "Have you done it? I didn't even feel it."
In order to film this year's series of 'The Great British Bake Off', the cast and crew – including judges Prue and Paul Hollywood and presenters Noel Fielding and Matt – all had to form a COVID bubble and self-isolated together at a hotel in Essex during the show's run.
And Prue previously admitted she was dreading having to isolate with the stars as she thought there would be lots of tension and someone would kick up a fuss.
She explained: “I thought being locked up with those three for six weeks might be hard, but it was absolutely lovely. Because we had to get along together, everybody just got on. There were no quarrels. We did not have the usual sort of ... nobody stamped off or got in a temper with anybody.”
Prue joined the series after it moved from the BBC to Channel 4 and underwent some changes as former judge Mary Berry decided to leave the show.
At first, Prue received some comments about her presence on the show but she believes fans have come to terms with her role.
She added: "If you were really really famous like Beyonce, your life is completely dominated by the fact that you cannot go anywhere. I don’t have that. A couple of people at the beginning said, ‘We love Mary Berry’, but since I have been on it they seem to have liked it."
