Mums have got the hots for Covid scientist Jonathan Van Tam.
His pandemic performances have turned him into an unlikely sex symbol.
Now producers are desperate to sign him up for shows when the world gets back to normal.
The Deputy Chief Medical Officer – nicknamed JVT – is a regular at Covid press briefings alongside Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Dozens of mums on online forum Mumsnet have admitted having a crush on him. Some have even called themselves the Van Tam Clan on the parenting site.

Mumsnet moderators had to delete some of their raunchier comments.
One started off the thread and said: “Is it very wrong to have a little crush on the Prof???”
Another said she felt weak at the knees after the medic told Britons not to “tear
the pants off” lockdown easing last year.
She said: “I am a fan of Prof Van Tam. Clear, articulate, intelligent, calm.
“When he mentioned tearing the pants off I realised I even quite fancy him.”
In response, another mum gushed: “I love him, he looks like Dangermouse’s sidekick Penfold”.
TV’s Richard Osman has already begged him to star on his House Of Games.
And Strictly pro Janette Manrara said he would be a natural dancer, but JVT joked: “It would be rather like watching Jumbo on ice”.
