comedyBilly Connolly has received his second Covid-19 vaccination.

The stand-up legend received the injection at a supermarket near his Florida Keys home, wife Pamela Stephenson revealed on Twitter.

It comes four weeks after the 78-year-old received his first dose, and Stephenson added: ‘So relieved he has some protection now!’

Sir Billy was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2013 and subsequently retired from stand-up, saying: ‘The Parkinson's has made my brain work differently and you need to have a good brain for comedy.’
