Good Morning Britain's Susanna Reid did an impromptu impression of *that* Harry met Sally scene as she reacted to news of a Covid-19 vaccine.

Susanna and co-presenter Piers Morgan were looking at newspaper coverage about the new coronavirus vaccine, including the Daily Star's front page with "Yes, Yes, Yes!" splashed across it.

This was in response to a Radio 4 interview with Oxford professor John Bell, who was asked whether this vaccine could mean life could be back to normal by spring.

"Yes, yes, yes!" he enthusiastically replied.

This prompted Susanna to begin shouting "yes" and slamming her fist on her desk, just like Meg Ryan's Sally faking an orgasm in a New York deli in the classic romantic comedy.

Piers looked slightly shocked as he replied: "Oh blimey, are you alright Susanna?"

"I'm very excited about the prospect of a vaccine," she replied.

Piers then added: "This is Pfizer – the company behind the vaccine which also created Viagra. So you know, it all comes together."

According to early results announced yesterday (9 November), the first effective coronavirus vaccine can prevent more than 90% of people from getting Covid-19.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said that the NHS is ready to start providing the new coronavirus vaccine "as fast as safely possible". But he urged people to be patient, and added that "we just don't know" how many people will need to be vaccinated before life can return to normal.

He told BBC Breakfast: "We still appeal this morning for people's patience, firstly to follow existing rules, because this is still a deadly disease and this is not over yet.

"Even once we start to roll it out, we still need to look after ourselves, look after our community by following the rules and being careful to stop the spread of transmission."

Good Morning Britain airs on weekdays on ITV.
