Essex, Elmbridge, Barrow in Furness, York, North East Derbyshire, Chesterfield and Erewash will also be placed into the same category.

Earlier this month, Yazmin took to Instagram to share how much she and James have ‘grown as people’ since rekindling their relationship.

The couple split last year after two years together over claims he had cheated on her while they were on a romantic holiday together in Turkey, something he denied.

Sharing a loved-up snap of herself with her on-again boyfriend, the brunette beauty admitted that their year apart ‘taught us so much’.

Yazmin also said that she understands some people ‘may not agree’ or think that they have made the ‘right decision’ but it feels right for her.  

She penned: ‘The year apart taught us so much. We’ve both changed and grown as people but most of it all made us realise how much we’re supposed to be together. 

‘Some people may not agree and some people may think we made the right decision. But what I’ve learnt the most is that in life you have to do what you feel is right for YOU. 

‘Not care about what anyone else thinks. Once you stop caring your life will fall right into place and you will be the happiest you’ve ever been.’ 

What is the difference between Tier One and Tier Two? 

TIER ONE 

Normal social distancing should be followed. Face masks on public transport and in shops etc.

Rule of Six on gatherings indoors and outdoors, and 10pm curfew on pubs. 

TIER TWO

The Tier One rules still apply. 

In addition, households are banned from mixing in any indoor setting.

That means that socialising inside homes and bars is off limits.

However, in pub gardens, private gardens and other outdoor spaces it is still permitted as long as the Rule of Six is obeyed.
