Will Mellor has recovered after being bed-bound following his coronavirus vaccine.
The 'Coronation Street' actor – who plays drug lord Harvey Gaskell in the ITV soap – feels "fine" after a "rough few days" following his first COVID jab on Saturday (24.04.21).
He said: "It's been a rough few days.
"I had the jab on Saturday and was proper rough on Sunday. Seriously.
"It was like I'd had the full-blown flu, it was horrible.
"But yesterday I did feel better, and last night I felt better again.
"And today I feel fine."
Will admitted earlier this week he felt "absolutely horrendous" and was bed-ridden following his vaccine, and he has now warned others to clear their diaries for the day after their jabs just in case they have a similar reaction to his.
Speaking in a video on his Instagram account, from his 'Corrie' dressing room, he added: "If you are thinking about getting the jab and you do get a reaction like mine it does look like it only lasts 24/ 36 hours maximum, and then you're back to normal.
"But just in case you do get a reaction like mine don't plan anything for the day after you get the jab because it's proper bad. Seriously."
Will's former 'Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps' co-star Ralf Little also admitted he felt "dog rough" for 24 hours after having his COVID jab.
He commented: "Same with me pal. Felt dog rough for about 24 hours, then it was gone as quickly as it arrived. Boom."
