Gardeners’ World host Monty Don spoke of the “immensely impressive service” he received yesterday when he got the Covid jab. The 65-year-old shared the news on social media, confirming that he’d received his first dose of the Oxford/Zeneca vaccination.

Monty also said that he was “grateful” for the professionalism of all the people who were involved with running the programme.

“The NHS is so good,” the clearly delighted TV star told fans.

Following his appointment, he spoke about the news on Twitter, in view of his 210,200 followers.

He tweeted: “I had my first Oxford/Zeneca vaccination this afternoon and hugely impressed and grateful for the professionalism, cheerfulness and efficiency of everyone involved.

Many took to the comments section of the post to share their thoughts.

“Good news. So impressed with it all, the volunteers are just wonderful, standing outside for hours in freezing temperatures and still smiling,” one follower replied.

“YES Monty! As well as that only 5 weeks to a new series of GW. The glass is definitely half full!” another added.

“Take it easy tomorrow monty it can knock stuffing out of you a bit no digging tomoz,”(sic) a third person warned.

Monty also shared the news with his 750,000 Instagram followers.

He posted a picture of his appointment card along with his praise of the National Health Service.

“Immensely impressive service. Calm, professional, cheerful – the NHS is so good,” the gardener wrote online.

“Thank-you for posting this, I’m sure for many this will serve as reassurance that this vaccine is essential, and safe,” one follower wrote in the comments section of the photo.

Earlier in the week, Monty sparked confusion when he revealed that he had booked an appointment for his vaccination.

“What I’m puzzled about is that @TheMontyDon said he’d booked his vaccination.. mmmm how does that work?

“I’m to the understanding that you are contacted and not able to personally book a vaccine injection.” a confused Twitter user wrote online.

“They contact you with a date and range of time slots – which you then book,” Monty explained.

The presenter was not the only celebrity to receive their Covid jab yesterday.

This Morning host Ruth Langsford, 60, told fans that she was “so grateful” to be called upon for her vaccination.

“JUST HAD MY VACCINE!! Feel SO grateful,” Ruth wrote alongside a picture of herself getting the first dose, which she posted on Instagram.

“Thought it was a scam message at first as I wasn’t expecting to be called until March!

“Thank you everybody, staff & volunteers, at the vaccination centre in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey…a quick, well organised and very friendly experience.

“Another step forward to being able to see my Mum again I hope,” she added.
