Even huge venues like the Royal Albert Hall and landmarks like the London Eye joined in on the thanks, as they were lit up in blue throughout the tribute following hashtag #LightItBlue which went viral on Twitter.
Health Minister Nadine Dorries, who herself recently recovered after contracting coronavirus, tweeted about the event.
She wrote: “At no time when I trained as a nurse many years ago, did I ever think I would have to face what our nurses and all frontline staff are dealing with right now.
“Tonight, at 8pm, I will be joining the nation in a hugely grateful round of applause. You are amazing.”
