The 'Coronation Street' actor - who plays drug lord Harvey Gaskell in the ITV soap - feels "fine" after a "rough few days" following his first COVID jab on Saturday (24.04.21).

He said: "It's been a rough few days.

"I had the jab on Saturday and was proper rough on Sunday. Seriously.

"It was like I'd had the full-blown flu, it was horrible.

"Really bad.

"But yesterday I did feel better, and last night I felt better again.

"And today I feel fine."

Will admitted earlier this week he felt "absolutely horrendous" and was bed-ridden following his vaccine, and he has now warned others to clear their diaries for the day after their jabs just in case they have a similar reaction to his.

Speaking in a video on his Instagram account, from his 'Corrie' dressing room, he added: "If you are thinking about getting the jab and you do get a reaction like mine it does look like it only lasts 24/ 36 hours maximum, and then you're back to normal.

"But just in case you do get a reaction like mine don't plan anything for the day after you get the jab because it's proper bad. Seriously."

Will's former 'Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps' co-star Ralf Little also admitted he felt "dog rough" for 24 hours after having his COVID jab.

He commented: "Same with me pal. Felt dog rough for about 24 hours, then it was gone as quickly as it arrived. Boom."
