Laurence Fox drags his kids into anti-vaxx row: Actor says he’ll BAN he and Billie Piper’s boys from school because he fears they’ll have Covid jab without his permission
- Laurence Fox would remove his boys from school over opposition to Covid jab
- The actor, 43, shares his two sons with his former wife, actress Billie Piper, 38
- He will home educate them rather than let them be vaccinated without consent
- Comes after reports NHS had drawn up plans to start vaccinating 12-year-olds
Laurence Fox says he could remove his children from school because of his opposition to the Government’s Covid vaccination programme.
Fox, 43, who played Sergeant Hathaway in ITV detective series Lewis, has two sons with his former wife, actress Billie Piper, 38.
Fox says he will educate them at home rather than let them be vaccinated without his consent.
‘Every parent who loves their children should resist this insanity,’ said the actor-turned-political campaigner.
‘I will not be sending my kids back to school. I will educate my kids at home from now on. The rushed vaccination of children, for no reason whatsoever, shows how deeply morally corrupt this regime has become. I look forward to reading with them at home and staying the hell away from the authorities.’

Fox shares custody of his children with Miss Piper, whom he divorced in 2016, but she declines to comment on whether she would approve their removal from school.
Fox was reacting to reports that the NHS had drawn up plans to start vaccinating 12-year-olds from the first week schools go back, with health officials quoted as saying that children would not need parental consent under the schools’ jabs programme.
Vaccines are currently being offered to those aged 16 and 17.
Yesterday a coroner concluded that BBC radio presenter Lisa Shaw, 44, died due to complications of the AstraZeneca vaccination.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Fox said: ‘Following the tragic death of BBC journalist Lisa Shaw from vaccine-related complications, and the unending lies about the efficacy and safety of the vaccine, I will not be sending my children to school until I have received a cast-iron guarantee that my children will not be vaccinated without the consent of both parents for a disease that has negligible chance of serious illness to them.’
He added: ‘We are in the middle of a mass delusion and it is time for people to wake up. Children’s lives are at risk.
‘However, I fully support the provision of vaccination for children in vulnerable groups with fully informed parental consent.’
Earlier this year Fox complained about the cost of his offspring’s education. ‘I hate paying private school fees for my children,’ said the actor, who was expelled from £43,665-per-year boarding school Harrow. ‘If it was my choice, I wouldn’t be doing it, because I just think it’s a waste of money.
‘What’s the point in spending money so you can teach them all to be posh and hang around with other elite parents? Boring.’

He was married to Secret Diary Of A Call Girl star Miss Piper for eight years. The actress, whose education at the Sylvia Young theatre school was cut short when she became a pop star aged 15, also has a child with her boyfriend, the musician Johnny Lloyd.
Fox – whose illustrious acting dynasty includes his father, James Fox, and cousin, Silent Witness star Emilia Fox – was dropped by his agent last year after a string of social media comments that critics deemed racist.
Two months earlier he had launched his own political party, Reclaim, which he set up in a bid to ‘reclaim British values’.
A Department of Health spokesman said: ‘No decisions have been made on vaccinating 12 to 15-year-olds and it is inaccurate to suggest otherwise. Ministers have not yet received further advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation on this cohort.’
