Baz Ashmawy has shared his delight as his mum Nancy received her Covid-19 vaccination.

The presenter and his mother Nancy are best known for their Emmy Award-winning show 50 Ways to Kill Your Mammy, in which Baz inserts his mother into various daredevil situations to capture her reactions.

Now, the TV star is overjoyed that he gets to spend more time with his 78-year-old mum as he revealed on Instagram that she had just gotten her second Covid jab.

Baz shared a photo of the dynamic duo looking thrilled after Nancy’s vaccination appointment.

Captioning the post, Baz wrote: “Her highness is back. Get the triangular sandwiches and gingernuts ready!

“One VACCINATED Mammy. Big love to you and your families. #normality #family”

RTÉ Weather and National Lottery presenter Nuala Carey was among the dozens of people showing their support under the post, commenting: “Congratulations Nancy & keep using the F word! I’m really enjoying your BOI ads #howdareyou #hesnotmyson.”

Another user wrote: “Nancy looks amazing! Delighted she’s vaccinated and good to go!!”

Baz has previously opened up about how hard lockdown life has been for him and Nancy and revealed that they barely saw each other when the pandemic first began.

Speaking to The Irish Mirror back in October, he said: “I didn’t really get to see her the first time round and it was very hard.

“What we did was I’d go up and sit on the wall and she’d stay in the porch and chat like that.

“I’m (a) very tactile person, I usually have my mother in some sort of headlock.

“If I had to go back to not being able to see my mam I think my heart would break. I can’t imagine not being able to hug her for Christmas,” he admitted.
