Baz Ashmawy has revealed that he is still waiting for a hug from his Mam, Nancy despite the fact she has had her vaccine.
Speaking with Evoke, the presenter shared that he is considered high risk, so is waiting until he gets vaccinated too before he can go in for a hug!
Baz said; “I haven’t had my hug yet. I still have to be a little bit careful as I’m one of those who is slightly vulnerable but hopefully I’ll get the vaccine soon.”
Revealing why he’s considered vulnerable, Baz shared that he suffered a collapsed lung a number of years ago; “It doesn’t cause me any problems but I had a collapsed lung a couple of years back and I had to have double lung surgery back in 2011.”
“I was out for quite a while with it. It hasn’t caused me any problems but you just have to be a little bit careful with this particular pandemic and abide by the rules like everyone else.”
Continuing, he added; “The people around me are a little more worried about it than I am, so I am under strict orders to toe the line and keep my head down, do the work. But I’m looking forward to just getting on with life a bit. Soon enough I won’t have to worry.”
Just last week the DIY SOS presenter shared his delight after his mother, Nancy got her vaccine; “Her highness is back.”
“Get the triangular sandwiches and gingernuts ready! 1 VACCINATED Mammy. Big love to you and your families.”
We hope he gets his hug very soon.
