Chris later shared that her mum also suffers from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease - a lung condition that causes breathing difficulties.

Replying to a tweet, she explained: "She is old with COPD it’s to be expected really. She is a strong old bird though."

But then she continually shared images and videos of her spending time at her parents' home.

While last week, Dani - who found love with Jack Fincham on the ITV2 dating show - was also spotted enjoying a party with friends.

A source revealed to the Daily Mail: "[Dani's] been stuck indoors for weeks and just wanted the chance to see those closest to her again.

"On reflection, she feels really guilty for going and knows she shouldn't have acted against government rules. She will think twice next time."
