His tweet read: “From today, all those on a trip to @THORPEPARK will be able to get a COVID-19 vaccine, in between queuing for rides or enjoying a bite to eat.

“Our vaccines are protecting millions from COVID-19, preventing infections and serious symptoms.

“Now’s the time to get the jab.”

How did Alison’s followers react?

It’s fair to say they were divided – with many expressing their surprise at her views.

Another asked: “Have you not had yours? This Morning will be needing to find someone else to fly to different places.

“Surprised at your response!” stated a third. “One person I really didn’t think would be anti-vaccine.”

Another issued a warning to Alison.

“Be mindful Alison what you get involved in …this is a sensitive issue,” they said.

“Urgh, not you too,” said another.

Was anyone on her side over the vaccine plans?

Some Alison fans did have the star’s back.

One said: “I’ve had my two vaccines, but this is a crazy idea.

“People who want the jabs should get it done by medical staff in the proper environment, not in a damn theme park, that’s just crazy!!

“Jabs ‘while-u-wait’ then jump on a ride? No. Just no. Supposed to take paracetamol, water, rest!” they declared.

Another responded to those who asked why Alison had posted the tweet.

“She is a human being entitled to her own opinions. If she has serious concerns she is free to express them,” they said.
