Marcel Somerville, 35, suffered a ‘crazy’ reaction to the Covid vaccine

Marcel Somerville suffered ‘crazy’ side-effects to his first dose of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine after being called early to a jab centre because of his diabetes.

The Love Island star, 35, took to Instagram on Tuesday evening to reveal he was left ‘side-lined’ by his reaction, while his fiancée Rebecca Vieira, 24, said he ‘shivered’ in his sleep. 

After resting throughout the day, the Blazin’ Squad musician, who became a dad for the first time in January, told his followers: ‘So I’ve literally woken up after five hours, just trying to recover from this vaccine. It’s side-lined me for the whole day.’

The rapper admitted he was encouraged to wake up after receiving a special gift in the post, adding: ‘But we’ve had something very special being delivered today, so watch this space.’

Influencer Rebecca explained the media personality’s symptoms earlier in the day while breastfeeding their four-week-old son Roman.

The businesswoman detailed: ‘Marcel went and got the Covid vaccine yesterday, and last night, he had the craziest side effects.

‘He woke me up, shivering. He was literally making the whole bed shake. It was so scary, and then he’s got a headache, he’s all achy everywhere, but the shivers have stopped.

‘It was literally his whole body, he was trembling. He’s had paracetamol and he’s okay now. It’s crazy!

‘If you’ve had the Covid vaccine, let me know which side effects you’d had as he’s not having a good time with it.’ (sic) 

Just one vaccine shot reduces the risk of being hospitalised by Covid-19 by more than 90 per cent, according to new findings.

Public health officials have told ministers that the remarkable results apply for both the Pfizer and Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, with the British jab proving slightly more effective.

What is diabetic ketoacidosis? 

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a serious complication of diabetes that occurs when your body produces high levels of blood acids called ketones.

DKA was first described in 1886 and, until the introduction of insulin therapy in the 1920s, it was almost universally fatal.

Today the risk of death with adequate and timely treatment is currently around one to four per cent.

Symptoms of a DKA episode include nausea and vomiting, pronounced thirst, excessive urine production and abdominal pain.

According to figures just four per cent of people with type 1 diabetes develop DKA each year.

It represents another huge boost to Britain’s world-beating vaccine rollout, which has now achieved nearly 20 million first injections. 

The successful inoculation programme is threatened only by the small minority who are still refusing to have the jab.

The Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency says more than one vaccine recipient in ten experiences some adverse reactions when given either of the two jabs currently in use in the UK (Pfizer/BioNTech and AstraZeneca).

However, the vaccine regulator added that the side-effects usually clear up on their own, or with over-the-counter pain medication such as paracetamol, in a few days.

Late last year, the artist nearly died after being rushed to A&E with what he thought were COVID-19 symptoms earlier in the summer.

The TV star had been giving fans updates from his hospital bed at the time, and later said he learned from doctors that had diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), a serious complication of type 1 diabetes.

The new dad told OK!: ‘I was throwing up, felt light-headed. I lost weight, my face was sunken and you could see my bones. 

‘It was because I have Type 1 diabetes, but I only found that out in hospital when they asked, “Do you know you’re diabetic?” I had no clue.

‘I was in hospital for over a week in intensive care and high dependency units because all the nutrients in my body were gone. I was very close to being in a coma but thanks to the NHS I made it through.’ 

DKA occurs when a diabetes patient’s blood sugar is extremely high and acidic substances called ketones build up to dangerous levels in their body, often resulting in a coma or death.
