Sir David Attenborough has become the latest well-known name to receive the Covid-19 vaccine, his representative has confirmed.

The news about the 94-year-old natural historian comes a few days after it was revealed the Queen had been vaccinated.

It's not known which vaccine Sir David has been given or exactly when he had it.

The Perfect Planet host is one of several stars to receive the first of two doses of the vaccine.

They include The Great British Bake Off's Prue Leith, actor Sir Ian McKellen, choreographer Lionel Blair and actress Dame Joan Collins.
