The PM is seen leading a wine toast with a handful of staff at a leaving do for his comms chief Lee Cain on November 13, 2020.
They are all gathered round a table crowded with several bottles of plonk with the PM's red box propped up on a chair.
At the time meetings between people from separate households were prohibited – unless they were in an "exclusive support bubble".
