Like many of us, Kirstie Allsopp, 49, hasn’t been afraid to voice her opinions throughout the coronavirus pandemic. The Location, Location, Location star came under fire for her comments about children and the virus at the beginning of this year, and she has since tweeted her frustrations about the latest rules and what message football crowds are sending in lockdown.

I’d be pissed off as hell

It comes as the Euros 2020 has commenced since they were postponed after the disastrous past year.

But as football fans took to the pubs, restaurants and the streets of the UK to celebrate, the presenter shared her worries about big crowds gathering while there are still specific rules in place to prevent large amounts of people attending weddings and other events.

Taking to Twitter, she vented her concerns after seeing a video of sports fans celebrating in London’s Leicester Square.

“I love these scenes, but if I’d had a wedding planned for next Saturday, I’d be p****d off as hell,” she penned.

“God only knows what message it sends to my stepson and all the other kids in the same boat, whose 18th-now-19th was finally happening next week, but has now been cancelled.”

Kirstie is no stranger to ruffling a few feathers with her opinions, but it appeared most of her followers actually agreed with her sentiments.

Fans rushed to the comments section to share their views, with one writing: “Kirstie you are absolutely right as usual! I’m so gladdened seeing these scenes it’s brilliant! But for goodness sake let common sense prevail Weddings must now surely go ahead with 100 people. Do LFTs and let’s just b****y get on with it!”

Another added sarcastically: “FFS this is disgraceful – agree wholeheartedly Kirstie. Lovely to see how transmission rates will increase north and south….who cares about lives of people and the NHS.”

A third complained: “My sister is working in a theatre in the west end – she had to get to work through this – to a socially distanced performance after struggling for work since March 2020. Imagine how she feels too. It makes no sense.”

“School transfer days cancelled, can’t watch my daughter School leavers production and last sports day,” a fourth said.

While fifth moaned: “No graduation for my Son after 3 years hard work.”

Someone else tried to reason: “They were told not to come.”

After the Government announced last week that today’s supposed ‘Freedom Day’ will be pushed back four weeks to 17 July for fears of the rising cases of the Delta variant, this meant that certain rules had to remain.

The latest outlines for weddings states that any number of guests can be invited to a wedding ceremony or reception held outside or in a Covid-secure public venue, however venues must comply with social distancing rules, which will limit how many people they can host.

They must also provide table service, and dancing and singing are still restricted.

Face coverings must be worn indoors when not eating or drinking.

A risk assessment will also need to be completed if you are holding a wedding in an outdoors private setting, such as a garden, to determine how many guests you can host safely.

Weddings in private homes can only take place with six people or two households present.

An exception is made if one of those getting married is seriously ill, in which case 30 people can attend.
