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


DJ Jo Whiley has referred to as it the “cruellest twist in the world” that she was provided a vaccine earlier than her disabled sister, who’s in hospital with Covid “fighting for her life”.

Her sister Frances, who has a studying incapacity and diabetes, has now been referred to as in for a vaccination – however Jo says it is “too late”.

Speaking on The Andrew Marr Show, her message was to “forget the classifications” and defend all individuals with studying disabilities.
