A British couple were caught breaking Covid rules after sneaking a woman into their Barbados hotel room.

Police were called by a security guard who saw a woman scale a wall at Turtle Beach Hotel after midnight and join Andrew Luker and Julia Knightley in their room.

The trio of Luker, Knightley and Jamaican local, Jacas were rounded up by police during a drink on the patio of their luxury accommodation.

Both Mr Luker, a plant hire director, from Rochdale, and Cheadle Hume beautician Ms Knightley, pleaded guilty to breaching the Covid-19 quarantine protocol when they appeared in court on Thursday, Mail Online reports.

They were told by a Magistrate they must pay a fine of £2,200, and £7,000 for bail within seven days or face nine months behind bars.

Single 41-year-old mum-of-four and qualified nurse, Knightley, first hit headlines years ago after using provocative photos of herself to promote her cosmetic clinic.

She later apologised following accusations that she was being unprofessional.

A picture of the scantily-clad woman in black lingerie sitting on a throne and surrounded by whips and paddles is still on the cover of the Facebook page for the beauty salon she runs in her home town.

Her clinic website states: "Slip into a world of opulent grandeur and exclusive elegance, and indulge your desire for passion and pleasure.

"With the right password, and the right knock at the door, you can find out more about our sensational anti-wrinkle treatments at Julia Knightely in Cheshire."

Ms Knightley admitted that she understood they could not leave the hotel until they tested negative for the virus but claimed she was unaware of rules forbidding guests to their room.

Regretting the incident, Mr Luker said: “Beyond that there is nothing to say besides to apologise.”

Magistrate Ian Weekes said he was "baffled" by the couple’s actions.

And he said if they had been infected with Covid their actions could have led to it being spread among the local community.

The couple arrived on the island on December 28 and are set to leave return to Britain on January 9.

The couple are the latest Brits abroad to land themselves in trouble with the law in the Caribbean where tough coronavirus measures are enforced by the authorities.
