UK Love Island reality TV show star Zara Holland has escaped jail but been hit with a 12,000 Barbados dollar fine for breaking Barbados coronavirus laws.

Zara, 25, was summoned to appear before District A magistrates’ court after attempting to flee this love island when her boyfriend tested positive for coronavirus.
Before the court, Holland pleaded guilty to “contravening the emergency Covid-19 curfew directive”.

 

Holland faced fines of up to £18,000, but was handed just a £4,417 ($12,000 Barbados dollars) fine in the ruling.

The former Miss Great Britain had been accused of “contravening the emergency Covid-19 curfew directive” in Barbados by leaving “her hotel premises without reasonable explanation” while being “a person in quarantine”.

Holland and her boyfriend Elliott Love, 30, underwent coronavirus tests upon arrival in Barbados on December 27 and were instructed to isolate at the island’s Love Sugar Bay hotel.

However, when Love’s test came back as positive, the pair headed to the airport to escape the island.
