Linda Robson accused of breaking Tier 4 rules as she had family over for Xmas

Join the Secret Elves to discover the best shopping deals and things to do this Christmas

Loose Women panellist Linda Robson has been accused of breaking the Tier 4 rules over the festive period.

Appearing on the ITV show on Monday, the 62-year-old actress spoke about how she spent Christmas Day.

When asked by fellow panellist Jane Moore if she had a good one, Linda replied: "Yeah, it was lovely. I had the family around because they're in my bubble. So I cooked roast dinner for everybody.

"Saw my granddaughters, which obviously Christmas wouldn't have been Christmas for me without seeing them. So that was really nice."

But viewers were not happy at all and took to Twitter to vent.

Many were quick to point out that unless either Linda or her daughter were living without their partners, then they could not legally be in a bubble together.

According to government guidelines, households with only one adult can form a bubble with another household in Tier 4, including in the case of childcare.

One person posted: "Bubble is just the new way of saying 'I broke the rules'.. Genuinely, can Linda please explain how her "bubble" works???"

Another viewer added: "I presume Linda Robsons daughter is a single mother otherwise she cannot be in her bubble.

"There is no such thing as bubbles unless you are a single adult or single mother with young children and only one family can be in your bubble."

Agreeing with that point, a third person tweeted: "This was my thought exactly. I think her daughter is married (to Steve?).

"When tier 4 was announced, she said the family would be with her Christmas day (bubble) and Steve would go to his family Boxing day. I think @loosewomen need to clarify this or explain rules to Linda."

Another person asked: "Linda can’t have a bubble can she? She’s married, her daughter is married. They’re in Tier 4 so shouldn’t have been mixing on Christmas Day. No f**king wonder we’re about to be locked down again."

Linda's home life does appear to have made her ineligible to form a bubble with any of her children, as she lives with her husband of 30 years, Mark Dunford.

Linda has three children in total, Lauren from a previous relationship, and Louis and Roberta with Mark.

The Birds of a Feather star also has two grandchildren named Lila and Betsy.

Daily Star Online has contacted a representative for Linda Robson for comment.
