She commented on her Twitter account, which has nearly half a million followers, that one of her friends has a ‘small business doing dinner parties in people’s homes and has had to cancel 90% of his bookings’ (due to the new rules).
‘He’s in a bad way mentally. So sad. Cruel.’
Welch, 62, has caused controversy recently after being an open and avid denier of the coronavirus.
It has led to people slamming her on Twitter and other social media with the backlash causing her to step down from her television roles for a ‘break’.
Other people backed up Welch by saying that their businesses had also been shut down and that the mixed rules are causing ‘heartache’ and ‘panic’ to many people in Britain.
The new rules which came into force on Monday 14th September saw a on ban larger groups meeting anywhere socially indoors or outdoors but it will not apply to schools, workplaces or Covid-secure weddings, funerals and organised team sports.
“The law will be enforced through a £100 fine if people fail to comply, doubling on each offence up to a maximum of £3,200,” said Matt Hancock.
“One of the pieces of feedback we had including from the police was that we needed the rules to be super simple so that everybody knows what they are.
“And now this will now be rigorously enforced by the police.”
