Susan Boyle has got her coronavirus vaccine and she’s thrilled to share the news with the world, saying she can now see the ‘light at the end of the tunnel’.
The Britain’s Got Talent star shared a sweet snap of herself, clutching all her vaccine information in one hand and giving us a thumbs up with the other.
‘Monday felt for the first time like there is light at the end of the tunnel,’ she explained on Instagram.
Urging others to follow in her footsteps, the 59-year-old added: ‘There is so much disinformation surrounding the vaccine but I encourage you to go out and get the vaccine when it’s available to you.
‘I am grateful for science, grateful for medicine and especially grateful to the wonderful NHS nurses and doctors, thank you.’
Fans are delighted for her, with one dubbing her a ‘national treasure’ and another saying: ‘Congrats Susan! Wishing you well ❤️❤️.’
Here’s hoping she can get back to performing pronto!
Like many other artists, coronavirus has caused havoc on Susan’s shows, with the singer previously having to pull out of the BGT Christmas special.
Her representative told Metro.co.uk at the time: ‘Susan, unfortunately, couldn’t appear on Britain’s Got Talent as her area in Scotland was in a tier four category, (the highest tier of Covid-19 restrictions) at the time of filming and she felt it prudent to stay at home and not breach the order by travelling to London.’
Susan shot to fame after singing I Dreamed a Dream from Les Misérables on the 2009 series of the show, narrowly missing out on first place to dance troupe Diversity.
Meanwhile, she’s not the only star to have had the vaccine, with the likes of Sir Anthony Hopkins, Dolly Parton, Dame Judi Dench, and Sir Ian McKellen excitedly sharing their experiences.
So far, more than 20 million people in the UK have had the first dose of their vaccine.
