Zara Holland has been spotted for the first time since returning home from Barbados in disgrace after breaching the country’s strict Covid-19 laws.
The former Love Island star was seen with her face almost completely covered as she stopped at a petrol station in East Yorkshire this weekend.
Sitting in the passenger seat of a black SUV, Zara kept her mask on inside the car and pulled her grey bobble hat low down over her forehead.
She covered up further with a pair of black aviator sunglasses, no doubt hoping to keep a low profile after being slapped with a hefty £4,417 ($12,000 Barbados dollars) fine on Wednesday.
The contrite star managed to avoid a jail sentence on top of the fine and fled the tropical paradise hours after her conviction.
Zara’s lawyer Andrew Pilgrim QC said on Thursday: “Zara left Barbados last night. The fine has been paid and she was free to go.”
She left boyfriend Elliot Love behind, after he faced a similar plight for attempting to leave Barbados with a positive coronavirus test.
The couple had tried to board their flight back to the UK after Elliot’s test came back as positive, but were stopped at the airport and questioned.
They were arrested by police at Barbados’ Grantley Adams International Airport as they made their way to departures after surveillance cameras captured them entering public toilets and leaving in different clothing.
They were then taken back to their hotel where Zara had to stay in quarantine while Elliot was checked into a medical facility until he returned two negative tests.
Elliot faced court on Friday, where he was fined the equivalent of £3,000
Love’s defence attorney Harry Husbands asked the court for him to be treated differently because he was a “simple guy” who owns a small demolition company and works for £450 a week.
The magistrate said he had been reckless since he had tested positive.
They said Love had put the taxi driver who drove him to the airport and his family’s life in danger.
Zara’s lawyer Andrew Pilgrim previously blamed her “lapse” on a “foolish error,” telling the court she had two negative tests and became extremely nervous about her and Love’s status in Barbados, which is why she decided to try and leave the island.
Mr Pilgrim said: “We accepted the decision of the court.
“Miss Holland wants to express her sincere apologies to the entire nation of Barbados. At this point we have no further comment.”
