Make-up artist pleads guilty to 5 COVID breaches

Legal case around a crew member from I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here was in court this week.

A legal case around a crew member from I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here allegedly breaching COVID-19 rules went to court this week.

The Daily Telegraph reports make-up artist Kelly Anne Bowman, 32, was not required to appear in Tweed Heads Local Court on Monday but defence lawyer Michael Hempsall entered guilty pleas on her behalf to five counts of failing to comply with electronic registration directive.

Bowman was granted a COVID-19 exemption to travel to Northern NSW for work in September.

NSW Police allege she breached her exemption conditions on September 18 and 19 by visiting several local businesses.

She also faces one count of not complying with permit conditions but the defence is still waiting on the police to provide that evidence.

Byron and Tweed regions entered a snap 7 day lockdown following the positive case while Byron Mayor withdrew support for a Love Island shoot.

The case was adjourned to January 17, 2022.
