Jo Whiley on sister’s Covid: ‘It’s been the worst week of our lives’


DJ Jo Whiley has called it the “cruellest twist in the world” that she was offered a vaccine before her disabled sister, who is in hospital with Covid “fighting for her life”.

Her sister Frances, who has a learning disability and diabetes, has now been called in for a vaccination – but Jo says it’s “too late”.

Speaking on The Andrew Marr Show, her message was to “forget the classifications” and protect all people with learning disabilities.
