Neil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys has revealed he has had the coronavirus jab.

The musician, 66, shared the news on the official Facebook page for the synth-pop duo.

Alongside a photo of him in a mask, he wrote: “Just had the Covid vaccine! Hope you’re all keeping well. Neil xx.”

He also posted a link to an NHS webpage about the coronavirus vaccination programme.

Earlier this week musician Sir Elton John and actor Sir Michael Caine appeared in an NHS advert urging the public to get vaccinated.

A number of famous faces have already had the coronavirus jab.

They include naturalist Sir David Attenborough, 94, actor Sir Ian McKellen, 81, and actress Dame Judi Dench, 86.

Great British Bake Off judge Prue Leith, 80, gardener Alan Titchmarsh, 71, and entertainer Lionel Blair, 92, have also had the jab.
