Selena Gomez has sensationally called Boris Johnson out over his recent announcement about how Great Britain will distribute surplus vaccines across the world.

Taking to her Twitter account, the American pop star tagged the UK Prime Minister in a tweet public to 64.8 million followers.

The 28-year-old wrote: "[email protected], 5million doses by September is too little too late. You promised Britain would donate ALL its surplus vaccines. Ahead of the #G7 Summit in Cornwall, call on the PM to help meet 1B doses."

The Hands to Myself singer also tagged the Global Citizen in her tweet earlier today, as well as a link to a web page where visitors can send an email to Boris Johnson entitled "Act Now to Help End the Pandemic for All".

The American pop star included a call to action for her followers in her tweet to Boris Johnson.

The US singer tweeted the UK Prime Minister after his recent comments about vaccine distribution.

Global Citizen describe themselves as a "movement of engaged citizens committed to defeating poverty, demanding equity, and defending the planet."

Selena's tweet comes after Boris Johnson made an announcement ahead of the G7 summit that the UK would donate 100 million doses of the vaccine over the next year.

The Prime Minister made the promise that at least five million doses would be distributed to poorer countries fighting to tackle coronavirus before the end of September.

However, back in February, he had pledged to G7 leaders that the UK would share every single one of our surplus vaccines to poorer countries in need.

Speaking earlier this week in Cornwall, where he travelled to via private jet, the UK Prime Minister discussed his aim of sending 25 million spare vaccines across the globe.

He said: "As a result of the success of the UK’s vaccine programme we are now in a position to share some of our surplus doses with those who need them.

Boris Johnson was criticised for using a private jet to fly to Cornwall to discuss climate change.

"In doing so we will take a massive step towards beating this pandemic for good."

Selena isn't the only famous figure to urge world leaders to ensure wealthier nations do all they can to assist poorer countries.

Unicef has recently released an open letter, urging leaders of the G7 group to work faster with their donations of vaccines, with celebrities such as David Beckham and singer Katy Perry adding their signature to it.

A number of organsiations, including the UN children's charity have created the Covax scheme which aims to ensure Covid vaccines are made available across the world, with richer countries footing the bill for poorer nations.

Starting with the most vulnerable groups and healthcare workers, the scheme is hoping to distribute enough vaccines to protect at least 20% of the population in 92 low- or medium-income countries.

The organisation's initial goal was to provide two billion doses of vaccines worldwide in 2021, and 1.8 billion doses to 92 poorer countries by early 2022.
