The family have barely been back to their UK home since last June, with businessman Jay admitting concerns over their protection was one reason they had not been back more.

The father-of-two revealed to MailOnline that they have no plans to return to London following the dramatic security lapse that led to a multi-million pound jewel heist at her West London home in December 2019.
Previously speaking from Dubai about their intentions, Jay said: ‘We do not intend to return to the UK from Dubai.
‘There are a host of reasons why we are not going back to London any time soon and security is one of them. The truth is we are playing it month by month and watching how the situation develops.’

Denying they had broken travel restrictions, he explained: ‘We have not broken the lockdown rules to come to Dubai, that is not what we have done. At the beginning of the outbreak last year we really stuck to the rules.
‘From March to May we locked down and did not leave the house [in London]. We went to Croatia in [June] the summer, but that was only after the rules changed and everyone was allowed to travel.
‘From there we went to Switzerland and we stayed there until Christmas when we came here to Dubai.’
