In face masks and matching green T-shirts they excitedly smiled.

Emma, 44, wrote on Instagram: “Today @mattjwillis and I spent the day finishing our training with @stjohn_ambulance to become part of their vaccination volunteer programme.

“Thank you so much to the whole team who guided and taught us and for making it informative AND fun! What a brilliant bunch of good eggs. Bring on the first shift!! 💚👊.”

Last month Matt, 37, revealed that while he wouldn’t be administering vaccines, anyone getting the jab where he’s working will get the pleasure of his company and smiling face as they register.

The pair are raring to do their first shifts

Speaking on Vicky Pattison’s podcast The Secret To…, he said: “I am signing up for the St John’s ambulance team.

“I’m not allowed to administer vaccines because I don’t have two A Levels but I’m going to be helping people walk in and register on the computer.”

He went on: “I have got f**k all else to do and I am sitting around. I’m feeling quite inadequate.”

The Busted bassist added that because his job revolves around being in front of an audience, he feels like he’s “f**ked for the time-being”.

“There’s not a chance there’s going to be any gigs, any theatre, any plays going on for a long time,” Matt told Vicky. 

“So I am like, ‘right, what can I do?’ I am just going to do that for a little bit and see what happens. It’s only 16 hours a month, so very little commitment. I can do 16 hours a day, right now. Get me out the house!”

Matt impressed upon Vicky what vital work the ambulance service is doing right now.

“They’re doing such an amazing thing. I said I am doing this, I got really carried away researching it. If you think about how many people in the UK need this vaccine and there are s**t loads of people on furlough sitting around with their thumbs up their a**e.”

The dad of three added: “Believe me this is not a selfless act, I am doing this completely selfishly. I want my life back. I want to play shows, I want festivals to happen, I wanna hug my f**king mates.”

Millions of fans were left broken hearted when Matt and his bandmates Charlie Simpson and James Bourne split at the peek of their Busted fame in the noughties.

However, they luckily got back together and Matt is convinced the band will reform once again after the pandemic is over.

During the same podcast, the musician revealed: “J’s doing a solo record and Charlie is doing a solo record.

“I am being an unemployed self tape actor and a stay at home dad/teacher/hooverer. We’ve all moved on.

“We are too busy for the band right now but it will definitely happen again. Busted is something we all absolutely love and we know what it is.

“It’s a big part of my life and always will be.”
