It is claimed that a security guard saw Ms Jacas, from Jamaica, hop over the wall of five-star Treasure Beach hotel after midnight on December 30 to join the couple in their room. 

Cops were called two hours later and Jacas was discovered with the couple on their patio of the Colony Club Hotel, Porters, in St James.

Mr Luker and Ms Knightley today appeared at Magistrates Court in St Thomas before Chief Magistrate Ian Weeks – who spared Zara Holland jail for breaching Covid regulations.

Knightley, 42, a beautician and qualified nurse from Cheadle Hulme, Manchester and 46-year-old crane engineer Luker from Rochdale, Greater Manchester, both pleaded guilty.

They were each fined £2,200 and freed on £7,000 bail but warned they would be jailed for nine months if they didn’t pay within seven days, the Royal Barbados Police said.

Mikaela Jacas told MailOnline she had taken part in a three-some with Luker and Knightley.

She said: “Yes I was with them two, Andrew and Julia.

“But I don’t want to bash them. They are nice people.

“It’s no one’s business what me do with me time and who I do it with.”

A pal of Jacas told MailOnline that she had returned to Jamaica following her arrest with the Brit couple.

They said: “She had no idea she was going to get so much publicity and so she has gone home.” 

Julia Knightley was fined for breaching Covid rules in Barbados

Luker and Knightley arrived in Barbados on December 28 last year as cases soared in the small island nation, which has reported seven Covid deaths.

Ms Knightley, a mum-of-four and qualified nurse, said ignorance of the law was no excuse for their actions.

She admitting to knowing they could not leave the hotel while awaiting test results – but claimed she didn’t know they couldn’t invite guests to their room.

Mr Luker said he regretted what had happened, adding: “Beyond that there is nothing to say besides to apologise.”.

Passing sentence Chief, Magistrate Weeks said the couple’s behaviour could have sparked a disaster on the island had they infected her – and said he baffled by their actions.


Knightley made national news headlines several years ago when she used provocative images of herself in revealing underwear to promote her cosmetic clinic.

The couple arrived on the island on December 28 and are scheduled to leave on January 9.

It comes after Love Island star Zara Holland, 25, was slapped with a £4,500 fine after trying to flee Barbados with partner Elliott Love after he tested positive for coronavirus.
