In a video message to his 1.1 million followers online, The Only Way Is Essex favourite, who recently showed off his impressive Lego room in his new pad, said he has been bombarded with messages which has left him concerned about the welfare of his family.

The 29 year old, who shares daughters Ella, six, and Mia, two, with wife Jacqueline Jossa, 27, kindly asked his legion of followers to stop with the comments.

In a candid video, Dan addressed the controversy online after first revealing his Covid vaccination views following his family vacation to Portugal last week.

He admitted: “I can’t take this. You lot are making me nervous. I’ve had so many messages from people going mad at me for talking bad about the vaccine.

“You lot are crazy. It’s my opinion, chill. It’s not dangerous enough to be forcing an injection on the world. That to me is suspect."

He added: “Can we talk about something else now. I ain’t looking to get jumped by the Covid f***ing army.”

The father-of-three shared his controversial opinion on Instagram shortly after he returned from Portugal to the family home, to be reunited with seven year old son Teddy who he shares with his ex-girlfriend Megan Tomlin.

Dan admitted he knew he would receive a lot of hate online for his opinion on the Covid-19 vaccination.

Nevertheless, he took to his Instagram stories to share his opinion on the topic.

He said: “I’ve said it from day one, people are going to have a go at me, but the whole thing is about money. The whole damn thing.

“I’ve had hundreds, maybe thousands of messages about kids getting the vaccination. Personally, that s*** isn’t ever going in me – never mind my kids.

“That’s just my opinion, it’s my Instagram I should be able to say what I want.”

This comes after Portugal was recently downgraded to the amber list of countries over fears of the new Indian variant of Covid-19.

Many celebs have visited the popular holiday destination include Dan Osborne and Katie Price with her fiancé Carl Woods.
