American comic Pete Davidson has been caught breaking Britain’s Covid quarantine laws while visiting his Bridgerton star girlfriend, Phoebe Dynevor.
The couple were pictured together for the first time on Sunday, with 26-year-old Phoebe showing her boyfriend, 27, around Stoke-on-Trent, where she is currently shooting new film The Colour Room.
However, MailOnline can reveal that Pete, 27, only flew into London’s Heathrow Airport on Thursday evening, which means he should have been isolating until Tuesday at the earliest.

Passengers arriving in Britain from the US are required to quarantine at home for 10 days, though they can be released after five clear days, not counting the day they arrived, provided they test negative for Covid.
In order to comply with rules, Davidson’s quarantine would have begun on Friday and he would take a test no earlier than Tuesday – having to remain in quarantine until he received a negative result.
A photographer who spotted him arriving at Heathrow from a Virgin flight on Thursday said the comic went out of his way to try and avoid being photographed as he walked through the Arrivals hall.
MailOnline has contacted Davidson’s representatives for comment.

It’s the third time the couple are said to have met up in recent months.
In February, former Waterloo Road star Dyvenor, daughter of Coronation Street actress Sally Dynevor, flew to New York City where he is based.
Although she didn’t share any pictures with Davidson, the Netflix star shared photos of Brooklyn on Instagram, as she penned: ‘Grateful I got to be here for a hot sec ❤️.’

Rumours of their romance took off last month when Davidson was spotted out in Davidson’s leafy hometown of Altrincham, Cheshire.
Meanwhile, an insider told People magazine: ‘Pete is telling friends he’s serious about [Phoebe]’, as they continued to visit each other on both sides of the Atlantic, while another source added the pair are ‘really into each other.’
Davidson’s trip to the UK appears to coincide with some of his free time from Saturday Night Live, as the show is on a break without a live episode until May 8.

The couple added to relationship speculation last week when they wore identical necklaces featuring their initials – which are the same – during interviews.
‘Pete is wearing it as a romantic gesture to Phoebe,’ a source told The Sun after viewers noticed their matching jewellery.
‘He wanted to show just how much she means to him and just how serious he is about them,’ the source continued.
‘She’s in London and he’s in America. So they wanted to feel like they’re together when they’re not. Any time they’re feeling a bit lonely and missing each other they look down at the PD!’
Earlier this month, Pete seemed to confirm the relationship during a virtual conversation with Marquette University students.
When a student asked him to share his ‘celebrity crush’ during the Q&A session, he told them he wasn’t available anymore.
‘I’m with my celebrity crush,’ he said, while grinning – though without mentioning Phoebe – months after the romance rumours first began.
Phoebe is best known for her leading role as Daphne Bridgerton in the Netflix’s raunchy period drama series, Bridgerton, where she starred alongside Rege-Jean Page, with whom she was rumoured to have been dating.
She is currently working on Sky Original drama The Colour Room alongside Matthew Goode.
The film tells the true story of Clarice Cliff, a pioneering ceramic artist who became a rising star in the pottery industry in Stoke-On-Trent in the 1920s.
Meanwhile, Pete is best known as a cast member on Saturday Night Live, and last year co-wrote and starred in the semi-autobiographical drama film The King of Staten Island.
Pete’s dating history included a long-term relationship with Larry David’s daughter Cazzie but he confirmed their split in 2018.
That summer he carried on a whirlwind romance with Ariana Grande and even got engaged to her but they were broken up by that October.
Shortly thereafter she released her smash hit breakup single Thank U, Next which formed part of an album of the same name.
In the title song from the chartbusting album Ariana sang that she ‘even almost got married and for Pete, I’m so thankful.’
In 2019, Pete hit the headlines for his brief romance with Underworld actress Kate Beckinsale who is 20 years his senior.
As the year went on he was linked to Once Upon A Time In Hollywood actress Margaret Qualley whose mother is Andie MacDowell.
Then near the end of 2019 he became romantically involved with Cindy Crawford’s daughter Kaia Gerber who at the time was just 18.
Reports of their split circulated at the start of last year with an E! News insider saying that Pete was ‘taking a break to work on his mental health.’
