KATIE Price has slammed the Covid checks in place at Heathrow airport after she wasn’t asked for a negative test when she returned from Portugal.
The 43-year-old decided to film her experience to share with her fans who are concerned about travelling and she was shocked by what she had found.
Katie and her fiance Carl were one of the first people to jet off on holiday after the borders opened last week.
They decided to go to Portugal, which is a green listed country meaning travellers do not have to quarantine when they return but they are expected to produce a negative test before returning and then a PCR test two days after getting back.
However, Katie claims she wasn’t asked about her Covid test once and was forced to share a carousel with people arriving to the UK from an amber country.
Her mate explained: “We just went through passport control and no-one asked to see our passenger locator form, no-one asked to see proof of a negative covid test.”
Katie added: “All the measures that are supposed to be in place, don’t exist.
“They didn’t ask to see our PCR test when we landed.”
As they went to pick up their bags, Katie pointed out a flight from Abuja, the capital of Nigeria, was also on the same carousel.
She said: “If you look on that list some of those place are on the amber list and they are due to come in this hall where we are now which means we are going to cross paths and some of them need to quarantine.”
Her friend added: “Bags are on the same carousel as Abuja – how mad is that.”
As they left the airport, Katie pointed out: “It’s really quiet, nothing like what we expected at all, nothing like what we expected at all.”
Her airport report comes after Spain opened it’s borders to UK travellers today – despite still being on the amber list.
Up to 100,000 Brits are expected to head to Spain this week.
Not only does this require a mandatory 10-day quarantine when returning to the UK, but the government has advised against holidays to destinations on the list.
Despite this, eager holidaymakers have descended with tourists already heading to UK airports after Spanish PM Pedro Sanchez announced it would allow Brits to return without proof of vaccination or a negative coronavirus test.
