Phillip Schofield has said that he thinks the Queen should be ‘front of the queue’ to get a coronavirus vaccine when one becomes available.
Phillip, 58: said: ‘Quite frankly I’m happy to say I think she should be amongst the front of the queue.
‘She’s 94, her husband is 99 – what she’s done, the service she’s given, what it would do to us as a country if she, God forbid, was claimed by it.

The British Medical Association has said vaccines could be available from GPs and at drive-through centres, telling surgeries to be ready for ‘rapid delivery’.
It is thought that elderly care home residents and the carers who look after them will be close to the top of the list to get the vaccine, followed by those over the age of 75.
Aside from Holly and Phillip, other stars have also been weighing on in the conversation, including Piers Morgan, who vowed to have his vaccine live on TV.
Taking to Twitter, the Good Morning Britain host said: ‘To all the anti-vaxxer Covidiots predictably now screaming that they won’t have the jab, let me say this: a) If it’s approved then I will have it done live on TV.
‘b) If you refuse to have it then no more flying for you, and no using the NHS if you get covid. Deal?’
This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
