Jamie Laing reveals he broke lockdown in London to move to Cotswolds home because he ‘couldn’t live in one bedroom flat’

Made In Chelsea star Jamie Laing has revealed he broke lockdown guidelines by leaving London for the Cotswolds with girlfriend Sophie Habboo.

The TV star, 31, has revealed he wanted to leave the capital for the countryside because everything was “kicking off and becoming a bit hectic” amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Jamie revealed that he didn’t want to isolate in his one-bedroom London home, despite the government urging the public to stay at their primary address.

Speaking to the Castaway podcast, Jamie explained: "I’m currently in the countryside in the Cotswolds.

"I decided when everything was kicking off and becoming a bit hectic, I decided: right, I’ve got to get out of London because the thought of being in my one bedroom apartment in London I was just like: 'I can’t do this.'

"So my mum lives in the countryside so I went down to hers, living with her we’ve had about 400 arguments which is good.

"I’m with my girlfriend as well, we’ve had about three arguments, which isn’t that bad, and I’ve got my sister here. We’ve had one argument but if all of my family go missing I promise you it’s not me!"

In advice given by the government last month, it was urged that people rule out visits to their second homes “whether for isolation purposes or for holidays”.

Jamie also opened up on the lockdown in the podcast, saying he’s enjoyed slowing down in life.

He explained: "You know what, it’s an amazing thing. I think we’ve become a generation that if we’re not up at 6am in the morning going to the gym and doing this and that we’re considered lazy.

"In fact that’s not what success is at all. Success is about having strong relationships, good friends, good empathy, loyalty. I think what we were doing is running ourselves in to the ground, we work all the time and my biggest fear actually is that I was going to suddenly stop and I’d be like: 'Well: 'What do I do now? I can’t do anything.'

"Actually, stopping and relaxing and appreciating life which we’re all having to do right now is so much better because we’re appreciating so many more things… It’s a really grounding experience."
