What Emma Willis and her husband Matt had to say

Masked up Emma and Matt Willis both made it clear how eager they are to help out on images of them wearing green St John Ambulance T-shirts.

Emma captioned her post: “Today @mattjwillis and I spent the day finishing our training with @stjohn_ambulance to become part of their vaccination volunteer programme.

“Thank you so much to the whole team who guided and taught us and for making it informative AND fun! What a brilliant bunch of good eggs. Bring on the first shift!”

A jubilant Matt added: “We did it. Coming to a vaccination centre near you… Thanks so much @stjohn_ambulance for all your incredible help and training.

“It has been so challenging and rewarding already and we have only just begun. Cannot wait for the first shift!”

Emma also shared a pic of the couple wearing PPE gear and a photo of a medical dummy from her training on her Instagram Stories.

She joked about the dummy: “Got a new mate.”

Matt has previously said he will be offering support rather than dishing out jabs himself.

He told Vicky Pattison on her podcast: “I’m not allowed to administer vaccines because I don’t have two A Levels but I’m going to be helping people walk in and register on the computer.

“I have got [bleep] all else to do and I am sitting around. I’m feeling quite inadequate.”
