LITTLE Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock appeared to break the Rule Of Six at her crowded 29th birthday party.
The popstar was filmed with around 10 people at posh restaurant Sumosan Twiga in Belgravia, west London, dancing and downing champagne without face masks on.
Current restrictions mean only six friends can meet indoors or out as coronavirus cases continue to soar across the UK.
New £200 fines have been announced if Brits meet in groups of more than six. Those fines double for each repeat offence up to £3,200.
Despite Leigh-Anne’s representative insisting she had done nothing wrong, she was filmed with a group of around 10 friends sat across two tables in the restaurant, tucking into sushi while sipping on cocktails.
Her excited friend filmed Leigh-Anne enjoying her drink and panned the camera around to wave at more friends sitting at another table.
After the meal, the party started to get going and the popstar got up – without wearing a face mask – and downed £370 Dom Pérignon champagne from the bottle.
Her friends at another table also got up to dance without wearing face coverings and cheered as waiters brought more bottles of champagne topped with flashy sparklers.
Her representative denied she had done anything wrong and told The Sun Online: “Leigh sat in a group of 6 people at the restaurant, and they were not in a private room.
“The people you see in the background of this video are not her friends and not part of her group.”
Current rules in restaurants and bars mean that you need to wear a face mask indoors – and can only remove it when seated at your table.
But the girls got up to dance without face coverings and could be seen waving sparklers as they ordered more bottles of plonk.
Earlier in the evening Leigh-Anne got the party started as she posed with 850 balloons at home.
Showing off her glamorous off-shoulder mini dress, she posed for snaps with her elaborate balloon display before heading out to her party.
Leigh-Anne’s footballer fiance Andre Gray was caught breaking lockdown rules back in June.
He later apologised for flouting lockdown rules to hold a birthday bash at his home.
“I wanted to wait to make [a] public apology as my first apology needed to be to my team-mates and staff first for not being able to be involved in yesterdays game and the risk I may have caused!” he posted on social media.
“I just want to reiterate that it was not a late night party like what is being portrayed and only a gathering of friends which turned into a sort of football tournament on my birthday!
“I understand my responsibilities and will do what it takes to make it right, apologies again (sic).”
It is not known if Leigh-Anne, 28, was there as Gray’s pals played on an artificial pitch in his garden.
Gray proposed to her in May on their four-year anniversary while they were in lockdown together at their five-bedroom Surrey mansion.
