NHS England said 120,000 people booked an appointment before 9am yesterday, as bookings opened to all over-40s.

Officials hope the two-minute clip - shared on social media - will help keep the momentum going.

It shows the stars appearing to audition for a role in a public information film about the vaccine and is the second video to be commissioned by Professor Lord Ara Darzi.

It opens with Sir Lenny saying: ‘People in the black, Asian, ethnic and minority community are 20 per cent less likely to take up the vaccine.’ Lydia West, from hit drama It’s a Sin, addresses some concerns, saying: “It doesn’t contain pork, or any material of animal origin.”

And she adds: ‘There is no evidence that it effects fertility.’ Doctor Foster actor Navin Chowdhry continues: ‘There is no scientific evidence to say that the vaccine is any less effective in people from ethnic and minority backgrounds.’
