EastEnders' Danniella Westbrook has coronavirus despite being double-jabbed and says she's 'fuming'

DANIELLA Westbrook has told fans she has coronavirus in a video message from her bed.

The former EastEnders star, 47, who played Sam Mitchell, wrote on Instagram: "I’m fuming and so poorly."

She posted a video: "Just a quick update to let you know that yes, I've got Covid and I'm really, really poorly. I'm gutted, fuming.

"People I know that have had both jabs have got it again so f*** knows if that's worth it.

"I don't know why people bother because they've gone and got Covid again anyway.

"It seems there's been a massive wave of Covid outbreak yet again and I'm one of the people that have got it.

"Look after yourselves, look out for each other and stay safe. Take care."

Yes, I've got Covid and I'm really, really poorly. I'm gutted, fuming

Two jabs from any of the three vaccines used in the UK provides significant protection against severe disease and hospitalisation.

The most commonly-administered to the over 30s is the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine which is about 30 per cent effective against getting ill from the dominant Delta variant.

Two weeks after the second jab AZ gives 67 per cent protection against catching the strain, the latest figures from Public Health England found.

PHE revealed this week the AZ jab is 71 per cent effective against hospitalisation with the Delta variant after just one dose.

After after two jabs the effectiveness against serious illness rises to 92 per cent.

Last week Daniella sparked hopes she was joining Emmerdale after turning up on set and posting videos of her outside the Woolpack.

In reality viewers could be waiting some time before we see Danniella in the Dales, with the star visiting the old set for an event.
