The talented star left her neighbours angry as they accused her of endangering key workers and vulnerable people.

One local told the publication: “She must have known what she was doing was wrong.”

Amanda’s mum and stepdad live in a small hamlet near Bude, Cornwall, but locals were furious that she had travelled 215 miles during lockdown from her home.

Speaking in more depth to The Sun about Amanda’s apparent rule break her spokesperson said: “Amanda is aware that all families are going through difficulty during these turbulent times but received a distressing telephone call from her elderly father on Friday afternoon.

“On balance Amanda felt the round trip to Cornwall necessary to contain the matter at her family home. The very personal situation has now been aided and Amanda is back in London.

“Amanda did not act on a whim and has adhered to Covid rules every step of the way in all three lockdowns.

“Amanda is aware of the travel rules and is devastated she had to break them on this one occasion.

“Her parents are vaccinated and, with Amanda testing for Covid weekly, she felt she was not putting her parents at risk.

“She did not come in contact with any member of the public.”
