Emmerdale's real-life couple Max Parker and Kris Mochrie volunteer at Covid clinic

EMMERDALE'S real-life couple Max Parker and Kris Mochrie volunteered at a Covid vaccine clinic today.

The two stars heaped praise on our NHS as they posed in PPE for a snap at the centre.

Max shared the photo to his story, with the image showing the men with their arms wrapped around each other.

Both have plastic aprons over their clothes, as well as face masks and medical gloves.

He captioned the post: "Volunteered today at the vaccine clinic!

"NHS are the best!"



Kris added the photo to his own Instagram Story, with the volunteering coming after The Sun's Jabs Army drive won a top industry award for playing a "vital role" in helping with the Covid crisis.

Our fantastic volunteers – part of the biggest civil mobilisation since the Second World War – worked with the NHS to get a shot in the arm of nearly seven in ten UK adults.

Other celebrities to have also volunteered at coronavirus clinics include Katie Price and her boyfriend Carl Woods, and Vernon Kay.

Kris and Max met playing brothers in ITV soap Emmerdale, with Max starring as Luke Posner, and Kris evil rapist Lee.

Call to arms – how MPs, celebs and big businesses backed our campaign

A HOST of celebs and politicians threw their weight behind Jabs Army as they praised kind-hearted Sun readers who signed up.

Their calls were led by Boris Johnson, who begged for volunteers to help 'return the country to normal life'.

The PM wrote personally to our readers, saying: "The Sun’s Jabs Army campaign is a brilliant example of the power of collective action.

"It has already inspired companies and workplaces up and down the country to join the call to arms.

"So today, I call on everyone who has the time to join the legions of volunteers already signed up and to boost volunteer numbers further still."

Jeremy Clarkson urged Brits to get off the sofa and sign up to beat the lockdown blues.

He said: “Everyone is saying how bored they are. They’ve watched Netflix, gone through everything on the internet, read Google.

“Well let’s not be bored — let’s get off our bottoms and volunteer.”

His call was backed by a string of other celebs – including the Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, who hailed our campaign as “fantastic”.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock saluted Jabs Army as he addressed the nation in a No10 press briefing.

He said: "Come and be a part of it. The Sun’s Jabs Army is marching and helping the nation.”

Former GMB host Piers Morgan branded the campaign as "excellent".

While celebrities like Bear Grylls, Gordon Ramsay and Bake Off's Matt Lucas have also thrown their support behind the campaign.

Kris' character was killed off after his sick crimes were exposed, but thankfully his and Max's relationship has only gone from strength to strength.

The star broke his silence on their relationship in October after a romantic holiday, sharing at the time: "It’s great to meet someone through work and have so many things in common and an understanding of each other’s jobs.

"We didn’t actually share any scenes together on Emmerdale but kept in touch after I left.

“I don’t want to jinx things. We are seeing how we get on. We had a great time on holiday in Dubai. Let’s see how it goes.”
