The 58-year-old previously isolated in September after a member of his family started to show coronavirus symptoms.

Sir Keir and his wife, Victoria, have two children together, an 11-year-old son and 9-year-old daughter.

The politician was last pictured on Thursday, December 3 during a visit to the Portsmouth Gin Distillery in Southsea, Portsmouth.
