Hollyoaks star Malique Thompson-Dwyer accused of 'breaking lockdown' with trip

Hollyoaks star Malique Thompson-Dwyer has been accused of ‘breaking lockdown’ with a 300-mile trip from Cornwall to Manchester.

This week, the Prince McQueen actor shared a photo of himself on Instagram in front of Polean Farm Cottages in Cornwall, writing: ‘Can’t stop won’t stop.’

According to The Sun, he also shared a photo on his Instagram Stories of the motorway on his drive back to Manchester, with the caption: ‘I’ll be back.’

Malique’s girlfriend Christelle Armstrong also reportedly shared a snap on her Instagram Stories, tagging the location as Exeter, Devon, and writing: ‘Nice long drive home.’

A rep for Malique told The Sun that the trip was ‘for work’.

Polean Farm Cottages are currently closed due to the lockdown in England, but note on their website: ‘We are able to accommodate people from Tier 3 areas who are key workers or who need somewhere to live as a main residence or while moving homes, so please get in touch if this is the case.’

With the third lockdown currently in place in England, travel is not permitted, unless you have a reasonable excuse, which includes for work.

In the ‘staying away from home overnight’ section of the guidance, the rules state: ‘You cannot leave your place of residence to go for holidays or overnight stays unless you have a reasonable excuse for doing so.

‘This means that holidays in the UK and abroad are not allowed.’

Last June, Malique was seen attending an illegal rave while gatherings were banned due to coronavirus restrictions.

He initially tweeted for people to ‘mind their business’ but in an Instagram Story, he said: ‘Yo, I’ve just come on here to give a quick message.

‘First of all, I apologise to anyone I may have offended, but let me just get one thing straight.

‘I’ve got family members who have actually passed away due to coronavirus so yo, I’m in this as well so don’t go on at me like I’m not in this as well.’

The actor starred in Hollyoaks from 2016 to 2019. has contacted reps for Malique Thompson-Dwyer for comment.
