Andrew Lloyd Webber said he felt 'right as rain' after taking part in trials for the Oxford coronavirus vaccine.

The composer behind shows Cats, Evita and The Phantom of the Opera, revealed he had been given the real jab – not the placebo.

“I had no effects from the trial whatsoever; I felt right as rain.”
