Having seen reports claiming that he broke the UK lockdown rules, Jack took to his Instagram Stories to clear up the confusion as he explained: "CLEARLY over 2 metres from anyone the person I am standing closest to is my brother who I live with.
"I didn't go within 2 metres of anyone I didn't live with all day. That's all".
His friend Bill also commented on the claims in an Instagram post as he explained: "We stuck by the social distancing rules, 1 hour excercise & 2 meter rule only stood near eachother to take a pic!!" [sic] alongside a laughing face.
The coronavirus has lead government officials to place numerous rules to protect the public from landing in the care of the NHS staff, who have been working round the clock to save lives.
