Kate Garraway was infuriated when Stanley Johnson hailed the vaccine as a "get out of jail free card".

Good Morning Britain's breakfast star didn't hold back on Friday after Boris Johnson's dad gushed he was looking forward to being "fancy free" following his second vaccination.

In her personal life, the broadcast journalist has suffered a great deal as her husband Derek Draper remains in hospital following his struggle with coronavirus.

During Good Morning Britain, Kate, 53, informed Stanley, 80, that people will have to be "very careful" because it's not known whether the vaccine protects people from spreading the virus.

She said: "They have made that quite clear, Stanley. Your son has been saying this is not just carrying on in a care-free way because we don't know if the vaccine protects you from spreading the infection.

"And if it works, it could only be reducing the impact of symptoms, which is a huge thing, but still means you have to be very careful."

Stanley was joyous over the vaccine's potential to free people from lockdown.

He told Good Morning Britain: "I am very much looking forward to it. I'm going to be fancy free after that. One thing that is not quite clear to me is what rules will apply to people who have (had vaccinations), will we get a get out of jail free card?

"We'll still have to be locked down even though we've been notionally been released."

However, Kate and her co-star Ben Shepherd had no qualms about correcting Stanley.

Ben pointed out Stanley had no clear idea of the coronavirus guidelines – despite being the dad of the Prime Minister.

He said: "We saw Stanley Johnson talking about what he has to do and how he has to behave – or not really knowing how he has to behave.

"Fortunately Kate put him right. He's the Prime Minister's dad, but he didn't know, having had the second booster, what he can and can't do."

Dr Hilary Johnson – who has been offering his health professional advice throughout the coronavirus pandemic – backed up Ben and Kate on the regulations.

The TV doctor insisted people must still be very careful and follow social distancing rules once they have the vaccine because the immunity isn't there for three weeks.

He said: "You still have to follow the social distancing rules and all the other guidelines because immunity isn't there for three weeks.

"You still have to be very careful, even after the vaccinations."
