Katie Price forced to deny she's broken Covid quarantine rules 48 hours after arriving into the UK from Turkey

KATIE Price denied she broke Covid quarantine rules by letting son Junior visit her and boyfriend Carl Woods at home within days of her trip to Turkey.

Turkey is not on England's travel corridor list so Katie and Carl have been forced to self-isolate for 14 days after landing back in the UK.

Though her teenage son Junior, 15, who she shares with ex-husband Peter Andre, was not with her on the trip he was spotted at Katie's home in a video on her Instagram page within days of her return.

Katie's rep has now told The Sun Junior was permitted to stay with his mum owing to the Government making exceptions for co-parenting adults and their children.

One exception to the coronavirus quarantine rule is to fulfil a legal obligation such as child arrangement orders which state that the child should be with the parent.

There is also an exemption for children moving between separated homes – unless the parent shows symptoms.

Katie is desperate to spend the holiday season with her five-children after they were all with their dads last year, apart from her eldest Harvey, 18.

She has paid for a private Covid test but if she tests positive, Katie – who hasn't shown signs of coronavirus symptoms – will be forced to spend a Christmas with just her boyfriend Carl Woods, who flew out with her.

Katie's kids Junior and Princess, 13 – who she shares with Peter Andre – and Jett, seven, and Bunny, six, all spent last Christmas with their dads.

Her usual custody agreement with Peter is to have their two alternate Christmases with each of their parents.

Katie revealed this week how she also wants to spend Christmas with her mum for what may be the "last time."

She said her mother Amy, who suffers from idopathic pulmonary fibrosis, has "deteriorated" in recent months and so they are looking forward to "enjoying" the festive season.

"This year my mum deteriorated more so I just want to do really Christmas this year because I don't know how long she will be here," said Katie.

"There is nothing we can do about that, that is what I speak to a therapist about, what I am going to have to deal with."

Katie added: "I am not saying it will be her last Christmas but I really want to enjoy it. I am really looking forward to this Christmas.

"The last couple have been s***. We all sit in a circle and open our presents. We watch The Snowman, Home Alone, the same old stuff. I am looking forward to it."

Amy was diagnosed with idopathic pulmonary fibrosis in 2017.

The illness causes scarring to the lungs which reduces the sufferer's ability to breathe – there is currently no cure.

Amy bravely opened up about her diagnosis in 2017 and said she could only have two or three years to live.

On hearing the sad news Katie took to Twitter to pledge her support for the British Lung foundation – and ran the London Marathon in 2018 in aid of the charity.
