The video shows the actor and musician preparing for Christmas by booking an MOT for his sleigh, polishing his boots and trimming his beard.

Kemp, who turned 60 in October, is also seen getting his coronavirus booster before heading out with a sack full of presents.

He said: “We all know the run-up to Christmas can be one of the busiest times of the year – buying presents, decorating the tree, eating mince pies with family and friends.

“I can’t stress enough how important it is to tick your Covid-19 booster or flu jab off your ‘to do’ list this festive season, among all your other preparations, to ensure that you can enjoy Christmas with your loved ones.

“It’s quick and easy and will keep us all protected as best as possible this winter. Now go book your jabs – Father Christmas said so!”

The short film is part of the Government’s campaign to encourage the public to get a coronavirus booster or flu jab when they are eligible.

Some 20 million people have had a booster or third dose in the UK.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has promised that everyone eligible would be offered a booster by the end of January, with at least 400 military personnel helping the NHS.
