Joshua Ritchie appears to be flouting the lockdown rules by having some friends over.

The former Love Island star, 26, took to his Instagram Stories on Saturday to reveal that he had at least three mates in his Bolton home this weekend.

The first post showed that the group weren't keeping to the social distancing rules of staying at least two metres apart.

Josh and two of the men were sat very close to each other on the sofa while they played games.

The reality TV star then filmed himself in the kitchen with his pals as he relaxed without a top on.

He then recorded himself singing while two of his friends laid next to him on the sofa and the other sat at the dining table.

The government lockdown rules say that you can't have friends and family over.

You can now meet one person at a time in a public park, so long as you stay at least two metres apart.
