Celebrities who have reportedly broken COVID-19 lockdown – from Amanda Holden to Rita Ora

With the recent news that Amanda Holden broke lockdown rules at the weekend by travelling to Cornwall to see her parents we look at other celebrities who reportedly did the same during the pandemic.

Although the pandemic restrictions vary by state and country, millions of people are being told to stay home, wear a mask and socially distance to curb the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.

With the UK still under a tight lockdown the rules currently state that any travel, local or international, is only allowed if you have a legally permitted reason to leave home.

While the majority of us are following the lockdown rules, only leaving home when absolutely necessary like going to work or getting our daily walk in, some celebrities seem to think the restrictions don’t apply to them.

And while many of them have followed orders during the pandemic, others have broken self-isolation and social distancing efforts, showing fans that they believe they’re above the rules.

Here is a look at stars who have reportedly broken the rules during the pandemic…
