Downton Abbey's Hugh Bonneville gets Covid jab while volunteering at local centre after dramatic weight loss

DOWNTON Abbey's Hugh Bonneville got a Covid jab while volunteering at a local centre after his dramatic weight loss.

The actor, 57, gave a thumbs up to the camera as he received the AstraZeneca jab at the Midhurst's Riverbank Medical Centre in West Sussex.

Wearing a volunteer top, grey jeans and a mask, he looked happy as the needle went into his arm.

He captioned the pic: "Midhurst’s Riverbank Medical Centre started vaccinating last week. Today Midhurst Pharmacy, led by Raj Rohilla, joined the rollout in north West Sussex.

"With former nurse Jo Wiltshire (left), Raj and retired GPs Andrew Douglas & Madelaine Litchfield (who gave me my AstraZeneca jab).

"Delighted to be part of the support team as a volunteer marshall. I get to wear hi viz and everything."


The actor is continuing to look well after his dramatic weight loss last year.

Hugh left fans stunned with his dramatic weight loss during an appearance on The One Show.

The star looked a far cry from his famous Downton Abbey character Lord Grantham, with some viewers admitting that they didn't realise who he was.

At the time, only Hugh's head and shoulders were visible – but his face was notably thinner, and he had also opted for a dramatically shorter haircut.


Fans flocked to Twitter at the time to share their shocked reaction to his transformation, but humble Hugh laughed off one tweet he was read that said he looked "amazing".

In 2009, Hugh admitted that his wife Lulu Williams had called him "as fat as a pig" when he returned from filming, and he has used a personal trainer in the past.
