Ricky Tomlinson: The Royle Family star issues plea after brother's tragic loss to Covid-19


Ricky Tomlinson, 81, has spoken candidly about his family loss as he warned people to “not let it happen to you”. The actor has posted a video message where he opened up about the loss of his brother.

On the official Liverpool City Council Twitter account, they shared a video message with the actor and comedian.

The post was captioned: “Not being able to get to a test centre doesn’t mean you can’t get tested.

“Actor and comedian Ricky Tomlinson shares his passionate plea after one of his brothers sadly passes away.”

In the video, Ricky explained: “Covid is a killer. I know only too well, because one of my brothers has just died from Covid-19.

“Don’t let it happen to you, send away for your kit today and do what you’re supposed to do. Save your life and your loved ones around you.”

Ricky urged the public to take a home testing kit in a bid to get people to take part in the mass pilot scheme.

As part of the pilot scheme, which began on November 6, anyone who lives or works in Liverpool can have a coronavirus test, even if they are not showing symptoms.
