Former TOWIE star Dan Osborne launches into an angry rant against the coronavirus vaccine.

Former TOWIE star Dan Osborne has launched into an angry rant against the coronavirus vaccine.

In a series of Instagram videos titled "I called it from the start", the 29-year-old claimed that the pandemic and the vaccination programme was all "about money" and insisted that he would be refusing the jab if called forward.

Osborne, who is not known to have any medical qualifications, was speaking after returning from a holiday to Portugal, which has just been taken off the government's green light travel list due to concerns over rising infections.

"I've said it from day one. People are going to have a go at me, but the whole thing is about money. The whole damn thing," he told his 1.1 million followers.

"I've had hundreds, maybe thousands of messages about kids getting the vaccination.

"Personally that shit isn't even going in me - never mind my kids. People do your research, it's not good.

"That's just my opinion, it's my Instagram I should be able to say what I want."

According to the latest government figures, more than 40.1 million adults living in the UK have now had at least one dose of the life-saving vaccines, while since the start of the vaccination programme the average number of daily deaths has fallen from a high of 1,285 to a low of seven.
