Victoria Derbyshire Admits She Will Break The Rule Of Six At Christmas If It Is Still In Place


With many of us thinking about how we’re going to spend this Christmas in light of the various restrictions currently in place around the country, Victoria Derbyshire has admitted she won’t be playing ball.

The presenter lives in Tier 2 London, meaning a ban on different households mixing, but says she intends to spend the festive period with her relatives.

Speaking to Radio Times when London was still in Tier 1, which meant households of up to six people could still mix, Victoria admitted she was willing to break the rules.

She told the magazine: “If the rule of six is still in place at Christmas, we’re breaking it to have the rule of seven. We just are. 

“Joining me, my husband and our two boys will be my mum, her partner and my husband’s dad.”

The presenter admitted she felt “irresponsible” getting together with more than six people from different households but would be taking precautions.

“It’s fine,” she said. “We’ll do it knowing what the risks are. We’re not stupid. We’re going to be sensible and buy a thermometer gun. But we have to be together at Christmas. It feels almost irresponsible saying that, but I don’t think we’re alone in feeling that way. We need to see my elderly mum and my husband’s elderly dad. We just do.”

Victoria also told the magazine that it was family that she has missed the most during the pandemic.

“What I’ve missed most is having loads of people round my house and seeing family,” she said.

“My mum lives in Bolton, I live in London, so I’ve not been able to see her much. We do Zoom calls every Saturday, but that’s it. It’s mad.”
