The Downton Abbey star, 57, has been volunteering at a coronavirus vaccination centre in West Sussex.

Bishop, 54, visited the centre on Saturday to receive his jab.

Alongside a picture with Bishop, Bonneville wrote: “My turn to ask for a selfie.”

Bonneville said that he and another volunteer had to “up our welcome game” when Bishop arrived to be vaccinated.

Bishop added on Instagram: “You know you have picked a posh vaccination centre when you get there and Hugh Bonneville is a volunteer.”
