Love Island star Zara Holland is reportedly arrested for leaving Barbados after her boyfriend tested positive for the coronavirus.
Zara, 25, and her boyfriend Elliott Love, 30, tried to return to England to stop spending time at the quarantine facility Paragon Military Base after Elliott tested positive for coronavirus.
The couple made plans to celebrate the New Year in Barbados, and after landing on the island, they are said to have been tested for viruses.

The two are detained for violating coronavirus regulations, each subject to a fine of £18,000 and imprisonment for up to one year.
Sun claims the two were detained after a £300 per night Sugar Bay Resort employee found a wristband and reported it to police in a Covid-19 ward at St.Lucy Hospital in northern Barbados.

Dr Kenneth George, the island’s chief medical officer, told The Sun: “There are three tourists with special interest. Two are in quarantine and one is detained by the police.
“Two people were arrested at the airport. This is a police issue and I believe appropriate evidence will be presented.”
A spokesman for the State Department of Health and Human Services added: “We have identified several confirmed complaints about violations of the Covid-19 protocol regarding quarantined visitors.
“The police questioned at least three tourists in connection with the alleged violation. These rules and regulations have been established to protect workers in the hotel sector and other countries.
“We will take decisive action against individuals who violate the protocol.”
