RITA Ora will be forced to quarantine for two weeks after flying to Australia to appear on their version of talent show The Voice. The British singer has been under fire over her controversial 30th birthday party, which was held at a restaurant in West London despite the Covid lockdown rules banning gatherings and forcing hospitality venues to close.

A small number of A-listers including Tom Hanks and Matt Damon are understood to have been given exemptions from the rules to allow them to travel for filming projects.

While Brits must still self-isolate for 10 days when they return to the UK, this can be done at home, and only have to pay for two Covid tests which cost around £185. Other destinations which are on the red list include Pakistan and Bangladesh. One travel agent told the BBC that he had already arranged 15-20 journeys home via Turkey, as his passengers "couldn't afford to come back." He explained that with the hotel costs factored in for … [Read more...] about Brits are flying via Turkey from red list destinations to avoid paying £1,750 for UK quarantine hotels
