Rochelle Humes has shared her dilemma over whether she would choose to get the Covid vaccine for her kids.

The Saturdays singer, who guest presented This Morning on Tuesday with Eamonn Holmes, admitted she couldn't decide what she would do if her children were to be offered the jab.

Mum-of-three Rochelle hosted a discussion about the jab alongside Eamonn, with Dr Nighat Arif and TV presenter Beverley Turner battling it out with their opposing views on whether children should be vaccinated.

But although both argued their points strongly, Rochelle, 32, was still left undecided on what her own views were.

At the end of the heated discussion, Eamonn said: "Dr Arif, who believes the vaccines are safe and mass vaccination is the best way to keep our children safe and at school, and Beverley Turner there, commentator who doesn't want her children to have the vaccine, thank you both very much for your arguments."

Rochelle sighed loudly as Eamonn asked her: "Sold?"

She admitted: "I don't know. I don't know. Mine are younger, they don't come in that 12-year-old bracket, but I really don't know."

Eamonn asked her: "They've had other vaccines, yeah?" as she confirmed that they had.

He continued: "Beverley's argument – the doctor would contradict that – Beverley's argument would be this vaccine isn't fully tested. The doctor would say the Pfizer vaccine or whatever has got green for go on it."

Rochelle said: "Mmm…that's your most precious thing in the world, isn't it, so I think…"

Eamonn asked: "But what if they got Covid?"

She replied: "I don't know. I don't know the answer. I don't know how I feel yet, everything's so new."

Eamonn asked for viewers to share their opinions as he said: "Rochelle's saying she doesn't know how she feels yet, how do you feel? Get in touch."

Rochelle and husband Marvin Humes are parents to Alaia-Mai, eight, four-year-old Valentina, and welcomed son Blake in October 2020, so their children are still some way off being old enough to get vaccinated.

The Covid vaccine is due to be offered to schoolchildren as young as 12, who will be able to decide themselves whether they want to have it.
