COVID-19: Robbie Williams ‘quarantining in Caribbean with coronavirus’

Take That star and solo singer Robbie Williams has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 in St Barts in the Caribbean.

Robbie Williams is understood to be quarantining on a Caribbean island after testing positive for coronavirus during a family holiday.

The 46-year-old singer reportedly flew to St Barts with his wife Ayda Field and their four children shortly after Christmas, and he was pictured in a flowery shirt and wearing a mask as he got on to a boat there earlier this month.

However, he has been forced to self-isolate and extend the trip after testing positive for COVID-19, according to The Sun.

A source quoted by the paper said: “Robbie’s been fairly sick.

“He’s confined to the villa where he is staying with his family. It’s not exactly the worst place in the world to be quarantined, although he cannot go to the beach.

“He will have to remain in quarantine for up to 14 days.”

A representative for Williams did not comment on the report when contacted by Sky News.

Current rules mean people are not permitted to travel unnecessarily, including foreign trips, although Williams is reported to have flown out on 28 December, before the full lockdown restrictions came into force.

The singer and Take That star is not the only celebrity holidaying in the sun during the pandemic.
