Zara Holland Faces Court For Breaking Covid Rules In Barbados

Love Island star Zara Holland is to be prosecuted for allegedly breaking Covid rules on holiday in Barbados.

Island police say the former Miss Great Britain is expected to appear in court on Wednesday, accused of “breaching quarantine”.

Station Sergeant Michael Blackman told Newsbeat she was “intercepted” at the airport and later presented herself at a police station.

It’s not clear whether she will appear in court in person or by video link.

An apology from the 25-year-old for what she described as “a massive mix-up and misunderstanding” was published by the Barbados Today website.

She told the publication: “I have been a guest of this lovely island in excess of 20 years and would never do anything to jeopardise an entire nation that I have nothing but love and respect for and which has treated me as a family.”

Vicky Malmsjo from Essex downloaded an app called Her Spirit, which offers a supportive community to help women get active.

Despite “hating technology”, the swimming coach, who at one point was in the gym seven days a week, finds the app simple to use. She combines it with a fitness tracker so she can monitor her improvements.

“I’m quite a competitive person, so even though I was being only competitive with myself each week, I tried to increase what I was doing. I ended up walking 10 to 15km (six to nine miles) a day,” says Vicky.

“I started to post on the app every day, and other people encouraged me. If it hadn’t been for those ladies at Her Spirit I don’t think I would have done it. Through the whole of lockdown they offered different challenges and things to keep your mind busy.”

Both Ben and Vicky have been using relatively inexpensive technology to keep themselves motivated.

But for others, the time and money saved last year – from not going to gyms, not commuting, cancelled holidays, and shut bars and restaurants – has prompted a splurge on expensive internet-connected fitness equipment that enables them to livestream exercise classes and compete with others around the world.
