Emma Willis and husband Matt complete training to give COVID-19 jabs

Written by on 29 March 2021

Busted frontman Matt Willis and former Big Brother presenter Emma Willis have completed training to administer coronavirus vaccines.

The couple trained with St John Ambulance and can now give the COVID-19 injections to people in Hertfordshire after enrolling in the vaccination volunteer programme.

Live COVID updates from across the UK and around the world

They revealed the news on Instagram, with Matt saying: “We did it…coming to a vaccination centre near you.

“Thanks so much St John Ambulance for all your incredible help and training. It has been so challenging and rewarding and we have only just begun… cannot wait for the first shift!”

This is the second medical qualification Willis has completed in two years.

In 2019, she qualified as a maternity care assistant following her experience on TV show Delivering Babies.

In February, The Only Way is Essex star Bobby Norris announced he had completed his vaccination training course with St John Ambulance after testing positive for coronavirus over Christmas.

Emma and Matt married in 2008 after three years of dating and have three children together.

The news comes as further restrictions begin to ease in England, with outdoor sports allowed to restart.

People are also allowed to mix in groups of six, or in two households, outside from today with further easing set to start in April.

So far, over 30 million people have received the first dose of a vaccine in the UK.
