KATIE Price has been pictured leaving a cabin 180 miles from her home after dodging a fine and being accused of "breaking lockdown rules".
The Sun can reveal that West Mercia Police ruled the 42-year-old star had made the journey for "legitimate" work purposes.
Katie and Carl, 32, left his home in Essex and drove 180 miles to Shropshire at the weekend, with the pair appearing to stay at the luxury cottages at Henlle Hall – the same place they visited with the family at Christmas.
They were seen driving away from the accommodation – about a five-hour drive from their home – today in a white BMW.
The Sun can exclusively reveal that the couple escaped a fine for their Valentine's Day outing.
Shropshire DCI Rik Klair told us: "We received reports on Sunday 14 February of a possible Covid breach at a location near Oswestry.
"Officers attended and after speaking to the manager of the premises identified that two individuals were staying at this location.
"It was found that they were there for legitimate business purposes and were not issued with any fines.
"We are continuing to liaise with the premises to see if any breach of the Covid-19 regulations has taken place on their part."
Katie had previously claimed that they spent yesterday in a "love cabin" in Carl's back garden, telling The Sun: "I never expected all of this. There's a cabin in the garden and the decorations are unbelievable.
"So much thought has gone into it and he didn't get anything for free – he designed and paid for it all himself."
Under Tier 4 lockdown laws you must stay at home and only leave for a specific purpose or if you have a "reasonable excuse".
This includes going to work if it can't be done from home, shopping for essentials, attending education or training, using registered childcare, outdoor exercise and for medical reasons.
The luxurious cottages, which are nestled in the grounds of a Grade II listed house, come with wood-burning fires and romantic jacuzzis.
She and Carl previously took her children Harvey, 18, Jett, seven, and Bunny, six, to Henlle Hall at Christmas time when travel was subject to fewer restrictions.
Katie wrote: "Absolutely love seeing my children enjoying themselves together and here they are tonight in the Jacuzzi at @henllehall_holidays.
"We love coming here for a break the lodges are magical."
