But a video appeared on Lola's Instagram stories earlier this week appearing to show her decked out in a lifejacket on her way to the island in a dinghy.

The video is now gone from her open Insta page, which has over 15,700 followers, but has been shared on social media.

Lola gives a thumbs up to the camera with the caption "Tier 4 journey".

A third of England is now in Tier 4 – the new highest level of lockdown restrictions.

It's then followed by a picture of her and the caption "Isle of Bute".

After slashing Christmas bubbles to one day, Boris Johnson told the public not to travel outwith Tier 4 areas from 12.01am on Sunday.


Nicola Sturgeon also announced travel ban over the border.

The Marquess, a former F1 driver who raced under the name Johnny Dumfries , has several properties on the Isle of Bute including Mount Stuart House and a family cottage.

A police spokesman said: “Three men aged 32, 62 and 69 years, and four women aged 21, 29, 60 and 90 have been charged in connection with alleged breaches under the coronavirus legislation and will be subject of a report to the Procurator Fiscal.”

The Bute family has been approached for comment.
