Dan Osbourne has accused the government of "blackmail" in yet another fiery anti-vaccination rant.

In past months, the former The Only Way Is Essex star hasn't been shy in telling his social media followers just where he stands with getting the vaccine.

And despite reports that his wife Jacqueline Jossa has been furious over his controversial comments, Dan didn't hold back as he shared another anti-vax statement on Monday evening.

In a post shared to his Instagram Stories, the 30 year old wrote: "Basically blackmailing people into having a jab if they really want to go back to 'normal', even to go to nightclubs or most countries in the world on holiday."

The father of three added: "Proper top class bull****".

Dan made headlines last month after he dismissed the safety of the Covid-19 vaccine and told his Instagram followers, "Personally, that s**t isn't even going in me, never mind my kids."

Later, the personal trainer said he was left "nervous" after backlash from fans who were "going mad" at him for talking negatively about the vaccine.

The star even said he was concerned about his safety, adding that he was worried about getting "jumped".

In a Q&A with her own Instagram fans days later, I'm A Celebrity winner Jacqueline seemed to suggest that she disagreed with her husband by saying she was "pro-choice" over the vaccines.

However, soon after, sources revealed to new! that the EastEnders star was worried for her family after Dan received backlash following his controversial comments about the coronavirus vaccine.

"Jac thinks Dan is a great dad, but she wishes he would keep his mouth shut and think about what he says before making it so public," the source claimed.

"She feels like he digs himself into a hole with his long rants and his strong opinions could put them all at risk."

Jacqueline and Dan tied the knot in 2017 and share daughters Ella, six, and Mia, two. Dan also has a son Teddy, seven, from a previous relationship.
