Nursing homes are one of the hardest hit areas during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many residents are separated from their relatives for months.
It is hoped that the possibility of a vaccine may allow some families to visit their elderly relatives during the Christmas season. The government recently claimed that some shocks could be distributed in nursing homes as early as next month.
Jodie is known to many for her role as the ruthless assassin Villanelle in Killing Eve, in which she received a BAFTA and a Primetime Emmy.

Elsewhere, Jodie recently defended her boyfriend James Burke for allegedly supporting US President Donald Trump.
In a recent interview with Porter Magazine, Jodie insisted there was "false information about" James, a 26-year-old Massachusetts lacrosse player with whom she was seen several times this year.
Some of the Killing Eve star's fans were upset over the summer when screenshots of James' alleged Instagram account showed he was following Trump, which Jodie did not confirm or deny in the interview.
She stated, "All of this false information came out on him and people mocked him, me, and my family."

"And I say," OK, I can spend my life and energy trying to convince people, or I can leave, I know who I am, I know my truth, and that's good enough for me. "
