A source told the publication: "Toff left her home on Friday to visit Jess in London for her dog’s party.

"Of all the reason’s to breach lockdown rules, your friend’s pooch’s first birthday is hardly essential travel."

"It was so surprising to see Toff making such a blunder - especially after she has been so vocal during the pandemic."

Toff's tribute to her granddad

Meanwhile, Toff recently paid tribute to her granddad on her Instagram, writing: "I’ve been a little bit quiet as we lost my Grandad over the weekend.

"I’m trying not to feel so sad because there’s too much sadness at the moment.

"I already miss him terribly, and someone sent me this. We had no idea we were being filmed it was my 25th birthday last year.

"We were the stragglers at the table not wanting to leave when everyone else had!

"I will forever miss listening to Sinatra with you.

"I’m going to keep myself busy and keep smiling (no more crying - he would hate that) and hopefully the time will go quickly so I can see the rest of the family.

"I’d also like to thank every person who has been kind to us as a family, particularly anyone who cared for him.

"It gave us and him such comfort. I love you Grandy."

Toff opened up about losing her granddad and her grandma's condition on Kate Thornton's podcast, White Wine Question Time.

She said: "My grandfather has been very ill for the last six months to a year and in and out of hospital, so in the end [he died from coronavirus].

"My grandmother actually caught it off him in hospital. When it all happened, I thought, 'It's not going to come near me or my family and friends.'

"But I can't believe how many people close to me and their family members... it doesn't discriminate."

She added: "I spoke to my grandmother yesterday and she's turned a corner, thank goodness."

Entertainment Daily has contacted Georgia's representatives for comment.
