Ranj was filmed heading to a vaccination hub set up on London's Southbank for frontline workers, as he prepared to have the Oxford vaccine, which began its nationwide roll out on Monday.

He explained: 'I've already registered and filled out various forms the other day so hopefully this process is going to be quite quick.

'It's extra important for me to have it because I am from a minority ethnic background and that puts me at slightly higher risk and I'm a frontline worker so it's really really important that I protect myself, my patients and my colleagues.'
