Harry Potter’s Jessie Cave sparks claims she’s flouted Covid rules while filming podcast

Jessie Cave and her sister Bebe have sparked claims they flouted Covid rules while filming their podcast We Can’t Talk About That Right Now.

While chatting on their latest YouTube video, the women were joined by both of their partners after Bebe had said her comedian boyfriend ‘lives in a house of four boys’. 

Some fans were left asking whether the Harry Potter star, 33, and her actress sister, 23, had flouted the guidelines and mixed with too many households while recording.

However, a representative for the sisters explained to MailOnline that the siblings are living together during the pandemic and in a support bubble with Bebe’s boyfriend.

They said: ‘Jessie, Bebe, their mum and Alfie are all currently living together in one household, and in accordance with current government guidelines the family are in a support bubble with Bebe’s boyfriend.’

In the sisters’ latest podcast they chat about a wide range of topics including Jessie’s breastfeeding journey and their partners’ bathroom habits.

During this conversation, Bebe reveals her beau, Horatio Gould, ‘lives in a house of four boys’, going on to say the cleanliness of the bathroom is an ‘actual nightmare’ and admitting there’s even a ‘mushroom growing’. 

Shortly after this admission the sisters are then joined on camera by their boyfriends, with them all cosying up and smiling for a few seconds before Horatio gets back behind the camera.

Dozens of celebs have continued making podcasts during the pandemic however many have opted to recorded via Zoom to avoid mixing households.  

Government guidelines say people shouldn’t mix during the pandemic, however there are some instances when support bubbles are allowed.

A support bubble is a support network which links 2 households and you have to meet certain eligibility rules to form a support bubble.

This can include situations such as when a household includes a child who is under the age of one or was under that age on 2 December 2020. This would apply to Jessie who gave birth to her youngest child Abraham in October.

However you should not form a support bubble with a household that is part of another support bubble, according to the Government’s rules

It comes five weeks after Jessie revealed her baby son Abraham, then three-months-old, was being treated in hospital after testing positive for coronavirus.

The actress took to Instagram to share a snap of her baby in a hospital cot in an isolated room, with an iPad playing Boris Johnson‘s national address announcing lockdown in the forefront. 

In her caption, Jessie – who has Abraham, son Donnie, five, and daughter Margot, three, with comedian Alfie- confirmed her baby is ‘okay and doing well’ having been stricken with the ‘super powerful and contagious’ strain of the virus.

London-based Jessie,  who played Lavender Brown in Harry Potter, welcomed her son in October and he spent the first days of his life in the neo-natal unit following her ‘terrifying and humbling’ pregnancy, before being discharged in November.

Abraham was discharged from hospital a few days after Jessie revealed he’d been taken in, with the doting mum-of-three sharing regular updates since. 

Shortly after the scare, Jessie discussed Abraham’s COVID-19 battle on Lorraine, as well as her relief that she took him to hospital as soon as he became unwell.

She told the host: ‘We’re fine, we’re doing well, we’re much better’ before discussing the onset of the deadly virus on her baby.

The thespian said: ‘It’s the most contagious thing. I was completely symptomless so it’s bizarre. He was completely fine, almost two weeks later, he suddenly turned. With newborns, you have to be so hyper aware of every single symptom.’

Jessie was gravely concerned by the change in Abraham’s behaviour and took him to hospital.

She continued: ‘Within a day, he wasn’t feeding as much, his cry was different, it was like a different baby. I just went into A&E.

‘Everyone has to be so aware of a quick change because it could have been very different if I hadn’t gone in. Everyone is so scared right now, understandably.

‘For children, it’s not as overwhelming for adults. You have to be so quick to go in and don’t be scared of going in. Don’t wait basically, go.’
