"You can't go around your mates house, you can't have big family groups, you can't have barbecues with 20 people, just stay in your own homes with the people yourself-isolating with."

Jacqueline received backlash for posting the clip while laying in her garden, which she later responded to.

She said: "I'm really done with people on Instagram DM'ing saying stupid stuff like: 'Oh my God, easy for you to say in your garden.' Yeah, I'm in my garden.

"I understand people in flats with kids and stuff, it's really hard. I understand it's hard but it's doable. Otherwise, we'll be doing this for months and months.

"If you're in a flat and you're like: 'The kids are driving me mad, I've got to get out', just go for a walk, no one is saying you can't go for a walk, go get some fresh air.

"Just don't go to the park and let your kids play with other people's kids. Don't go on playdates, stuff like that. I know it's hard."
