SKY presenter Kay Burley has called herself an “idiot” for breaking lockdown regulations on her 60th birthday bash.
Although she and friends were using a “Covid compliant” restaurant in London she “popped into” another place to use the bathroom.
In a public outcry at “double standards” of holding people to ridicule for breaking rules and regulations SKY suspended Ms Burley for six months.
On her return Kay said:
“I thought I was Covid-compliant.
“I wasn’t. I made a mistake.
“I was an idiot and I let myself and my viewers down.
“I’m sorry for what I did and for any heartache I caused the loyal friends with me at the time.
“I paid for my mistake; quite rightly.
“My viewers told me how frustrated they were with me, and they were right to do so.
“With time, the mood music changed and my viewers wanted me back.”
