Reports claimed that The Chase star Bradley, 60, had apparently attended a “boozy bash”.

What happened with The Chase star Bradley Walsh?

Wearing a festive shirt and with a bottle of beer in his drink holder, he leaned forward to pull a face to the camera in photos obtained by The Sun.

In one hand he was holding his phone, and the other his glasses.

Rules for people using taxis include wearing face coverings.

However, a rep for Bradley told ED! that the star was not at a “boozy bash” as had initially been claimed.

He had been filming his last stint on The Chase before Christmas and was therefore wearing a festive shirt.

They also said that the car was a private car and not a taxi.

Which other celeb broke COVID rules?

One more notable celeb has broken COVID rules after a boozy night out recently.

Last week, GMB host Piers Morgan was pictured without a face covering after a night out in London with wife, Celia Walden.

Bang to rights, he took to Twitter to explain and apologise.

I’m guilty as charged. For a few seconds I was a Covidiot

“I’m guilty as charged. For a few seconds I was a Covidiot,” he said.

“I did breach COVID rules for a few seconds by forgetting to put my mask on before I got in the cab.”
