Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock's Watford ace fiance Andre Gray flouts lockdown rules to host an illegal poker party
WATFORD ace Andre Gray has apologised for holding a Covid poker party with pals when his Little Mix girlfriend was away – months after previously flouting lockdown rules.
The illegal gambling session was held at the £5million Surrey mansion he shares with pop star fiancé Leigh-Anne Pinnock – despite an England-wide ban on households mixing.

Video footage obtained by The Sun shows Gray behind the posh bar of his sprawling home while friends sit around playing poker on Saturday night.
Footie star Gray, who pockets £50,000 a week, had six mates over for the knees-up despite Britain currently enduring tough coronavirus lockdown laws.
A source said: “He was well aware that you’re not allowed friends round for a social in light of what’s going on – but he did it anyway.
“Leigh-Anne was away working with Little Mix so he thought it would be a good idea to get the boys round for a gambling session.
“It stinks of arrogance when you think of what the rest of the country is having to go through.”
Staggeringly it is the second time Gray has broken covid rules in just a matter of months.
The Watford frontman was given the hairdryer treatment by boss Nigel Pearson in June after holding a birthday bash at his mansion.
He was axed from the squad to avoid the risk of potentially catching and spreading Covid-19 to team-mates.
He was forced to make a grovelling apology to his gaffer and colleagues.
It is expected he will be forced out the squad for a second time in light of his latest covid breach.
After getting caught for a second time, Gray told The Sun last night: “On Saturday evening I hosted a small gathering at my home.
“In hindsight, it was incredibly naïve to do so and is deeply regrettable.
“I would like to wholeheartedly apologise.”
