Kirstie Allsopp has taken to Twitter and slammed a social media user after she addressed social distancing rules on the set of Location, Location, Location. The Channel 4 presenter reacted online after she was questioned about maintaining a two-metre distance from her co-presenter Phil Spencer.

Taking to the micro-blogging site, Kirstie, 50, retweeted a message in view of her 423,000 followers.

The property expert informed her followers that the team have to follow strict guidelines behind the scenes.

But one person took aim at the Channel 4 presenter and claimed that she was not telling the truth.

It comes after Kirstie tweeted: “Filming today OUTSIDE, fully vaccinated, healthy adults having to walk two metres apart. Will it always be like this? Where will it end? Covid is here to stay so when will things change?”

Kinch60 wrote: “You don’t have to walk two metres apart. Please stop lying.”

Kirstie fired back: “I’m not lying, the rules that enable us to film say two metres. Ask @Channel4.”

Another user Steve Bishop quizzed: “Why are you having to stay two metres apart, the rules on distancing have been dropped?”

The Channel 4 star replied: “Not by insurance companies. We cannot film without insurance and we can’t get insurance unless we adhere to rigid protocols.”

In a later post, she added that the two metre rule still applies to filming.

“Presumably as the star of the show you would have the ability to make a stand and demand changes,” 3dedd queried.

Kirstie explained that she is unable to make any changes because those are the current rules that remain in place.

She commented: “Sadly not, if I could I would, the extra pressure it puts on our teams is absurd. Poor Director constantly having to say ‘move apart, remember two metres’.”

Social media users flocked to comment on Kirstie’s original tweet that she has to remain at a safe distance on the property programme.

Erin Northover said: “Everyday I ask this question… what is the end game. If it’s not now, it’s surely not ever.”(sic)

James Baxter remarked: “All social distancing measures have been removed by the Government so maybe talk to your employer about their procedures?”

“There are no social distancing requirements now, so someone in your production is going mad,” a user named Acrobat commented.

Social distancing – a key part of the fight against Covid-19 – has come to an end throughout the UK.

In England, almost all legal restrictions have been lifted on the number of people you can meet – at home and in a public place – whether indoors or outdoors.

Social distancing is still required in certain circumstances – such as travellers entering the country as well as people in hospitals and care homes.

The government says people should still “consider the risks of close contact”, particularly if someone is clinically extremely vulnerable, or not fully vaccinated.
