Laurence Fox drags kids into anti-vaxx row: Actor says he will ban his boys from school over Covid jab
Laurence Fox drags kids into anti-vaxx row: Actor says he will ban his boys and Billie Piper’s boys from school because he fears they will get Covid jab without his consent
- Laurence Fox would take his boys out of school because of resistance to Covid jab
- The actor, 43, shares his two sons with his ex-wife, actress Billie Piper, 38
- He will raise them at home instead of having them vaccinated without permission
- Comes after reports NHS had plans to vaccinate 12-year-olds
Laurence Fox says he can pull his kids out of school because of his opposition to the government’s Covid vaccination program.
Fox, 43, who played Sergeant Hathaway in ITV detective series Lewis, has two sons with his ex-wife, actress Billie Piper, 38.
Fox says he will raise them at home rather than having them vaccinated without his consent.
“Any parent who loves their children must resist this madness,” said the actor-turned-political campaigner.
“I’m not sending my kids back to school. I will be raising my children at home from now on. The hasty vaccination of children, for no reason, shows how deeply morally corrupt this regime has become. I look forward to reading with them at home and staying the fuck away from the authorities.’

Fox shares custody of his children with Miss Piper, whom he divorced in 2016, but she declined to comment on whether she would approve of their expulsion from school.
Fox responded to reports that the NHS had plans to start vaccinating 12-year-olds from the first week schools go back, with health officials saying children would not need parental consent under the jabs program from school.
Vaccines are currently being offered to 16 and 17 year olds.
Yesterday a coroner concluded that BBC radio host Lisa Shaw, 44, has died as a result of complications from the AstraZeneca vaccination.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Fox said: “After the tragic death of BBC journalist Lisa Shaw from vaccine-related complications and the endless lies about vaccine efficacy and safety, I will not send my children to school until I have a rock solid I have been given a guarantee that my children will not be vaccinated against a disease that has a negligible risk of serious illness without the consent of both parents.’
He added: ‘We are in the midst of a mass delusion and it is time for people to wake up. Children’s lives are at stake.
“However, I fully support the provision of vaccination to children in vulnerable groups with fully informed parental consent.”
Earlier this year, Fox complained about the cost of his offspring’s education. “I hate paying private school fees for my kids,” said the actor, who was banned from £43,665 a year of boarding school Harrow. “If it was my choice, I wouldn’t do it, because I think it’s just wasted money.
“What’s the point of spending money so you can teach them all to be chic and get along with other elite parents? Dull.’

He was married to Secret Diary Of A Call Girl star Miss Piper for eight years. The actress, whose education at Sylvia Young theater school was cut short when she became a pop star at age 15, also has a child with her boyfriend, the musician Johnny Lloyd.
Fox — whose illustrious acting dynasty includes his father, James Fox, and cousin, Silent Witness star Emilia Fox — was dropped by his agent last year after a series of comments on social media that critics deemed racist.
Two months earlier, he had founded his own political party Reclaim, which he had set up to ‘reclaim British values’.
A spokesperson for the Ministry of Health said: ‘No decisions have been made about vaccinating 12 to 15 year olds and it is incorrect to suggest otherwise. The ministers have not yet received any further advice about this cohort from the Joint Committee for Vaccination and Immunization.’
