Dan Osborne ‘under investigation’ for flouting lockdown rules to visit puppy with Jacqueline Jossa

Dan Osborne and Jacqueline Jossa are reportedly under police investigation, after breaking lockdown rules by travelling from Essex to visit their puppy in Yorkshire.

Former TOWIE star Dan, 29, took to Instagram to detail the violation on Thursday, as he shared a series of images with his wife, 28, and their daughters Ella, six, and Mia, two, from their visit to the Total K9 facility in Cottam, Driffield.

And as fans criticised the reality star for his flaunted infraction, the reality star returned to Instagram hours later to share a new video in which he furiously hit back, shockingly telling his detractors to ‘go f*** yourselves’.

As a result of the visit to see their new puppy, who they have named Tyson, The Sun reports that Dan and Jacqueline are now under police investigation.

Earlier in the day on his Instagram stories, Dan posed with the pup and added a caption reading: ‘Look who we did an 8 hour round trip to go visit.’

A journey from the heart of Essex to Driffield takes around three hours and 50 minutes to complete. The stars are based in Grays.

Following the initial post, he then revealed that while their dog was trained, the family would continue to visit the facility before the pup joins their household.

The revelation didn’t sit well with a number of fans, who lashed out at the star – prompting him to hit back in a self-recorded video, taken as he sat in his car.

Dan explained to his Instagram followers that he regularly travels the country, as part his work involves delivering competition prizes.

On this particular occasion, he claimed, his job took him to Yorkshire, so he decided to take his wife and children along with him to meet the new puppy.

He then insisted that his wife and children remained in the car and didn’t come into contact with anyone during the long road trip.

He said: ‘Now if I did just go and buy a big dog and didn’t meet it and had it in the house with the kids without meeting it I would stick and people saying, ‘Why are you buying a rottweiler without letting it see your kids first?”.

‘So I can’t win in this situation. We went outside, looked at a puppy and then drove home. We were in a car, we are not causing any problem to anyone else.

‘There is no problem with what I did. I don’t know why Total K9 have had the police down there, it’s ridiculous.’

He added: ‘I know I shouldn’t have to but I’m just clearing it up. I know 99 per cent of people understand like normal humans but to the one per cent of not normal human beings, there’s your explanation.

‘It’s not a big deal, it’s not like, “Oh my God, we’re breaking the law”. Jesus Christ, it’s ridiculous.’

He then addressed the people who he said had been calling him a barrage of insulting names in reaction to the news, by ranting: “Go f*** yourself.

‘You don’t know me, I don’t know you, you wouldn’t call me it to my face, so don’t do it over social media.’

MailOnline has contacted representatives for for Jacqueline Jossa, the Essex Police and the Humberside Police for comment.

The government website currently states: ‘Under UK COVID-19 restrictions, you must stay at home. You must not travel, including abroad, unless you have a legally permitted reason to do so. It is illegal to travel abroad for holidays and leisure.’  

Dan made no secret of the trip to Yorkshire as he shared but later deleted the post detailing the journey and the length of time taken to visit the puppy, who they have since made an Instagram page for under the handle @tysonorottie.

He then explained that the eight-week-old dog would remain at Total K9 to be trained by the experts, while they would visit regularly.

Dan wrote on another post: ‘He will be trained by Total K9 with visits from us, then will join the mad Osborne house permanently.’ 

Total K9 have had a host of other celebrity clients including Lauren Goodger’s two Black Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, who have since been rehomed. 

The institution provides Pet and Working Dog Behavioural and Obedience Training and has packages starting from £300 per week.

In November last year, Jacqueline revealed she went to a therapist during the first COvID-19 lockdown, amid her marital woes with husband Dan.

The actress and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! winner shed light on the time when she moved out of the home she shares with Dan. 

She told The Sun. ‘It felt like everybody wanted to watch me fall apart. I kept it in for a while, but then over lockdown it was a really good time and place for Daniel and I to go through everything — an opportunity for us to talk through it all.’

‘For me, this meant turning to therapy. And because of that, I couldn’t be in the same house as Dan. There was no big argument or bust-up, and there were no other girls. Moving out was literally how I had to deal with it.’

Jacqueline also addressed the women who have sold stories about her husband’s alleged infidelities: ‘Listen, you can’t stop the bitches selling stories — that is fact, I know that. They can say what they want, Daniel and I know the truth.’
