Laura Hamilton, 38, has revealed she was stunned when a customer asked whether they could dine in at the eatery she runs with her husband Alex Goward. The star shared the surprising situation with her 110,000 Instagram followers while taking down some teepees outside her restaurant, Lord Roberts on The Green, following the start of the second coronavirus lockdown in England.
Speaking to fans in a video, Laura said: “I’m taking down the teepees with the lovely Connie.
“So as fast as these teepees went up, they’re coming down because we’ve obviously got to close, we’ve closed today.
“And I’m a little bit shocked and surprised because I’ve had a couple of people come up to us outside the front of the shop saying, ‘Can we come in for a coffee?’
“We’re in lockdown and all of hospitality is being shut down,” Laura exclaimed in disbelief.

She continued: “So I was just a little bit taken aback that somebody’s asked can they come in for a coffee?
“We are doing deliveries and takeaways and we are going to do what we can obviously for the community as we did before.
“But we are closed for dining in, just like everyone else,” the presenter confirmed.
It comes after Laura took to Instagram on Saturday evening after Prime Minister Boris Johnson addressed the nation and announced a second lockdown.
The mum-of-two began: “I’m just here in my bedroom, on my bed, following the government’s announcement this evening about the lockdown happening on Thursday just thinking…[sigh]!
“As a small business owner we’ve got to get through this again.”
Laura went on to say: “Haven’t quite worked out the plan moving forward just yet, but anticipating we are going to carry on with deliveries and takeaways and helping the community, as we did before.”
The Channel 4 star continued: “Most importantly, obviously, we need to make sure everyone stays safe… but… we’ve got to get through this.”

On a more positive note, she added: “We will get through this.
“Keep smiling, keep positive and keep safe.”
Laura also gave fans an update about whether A Place In The Sun will still be on TV during the day alongside its new prime time slot during lockdown.
She reassured viewers by saying: “As we head in to another lockdown, you have been asking me, ‘Will @aplaceinthesunofficial be on during the day as well as prime time?’ The answer is YES!
“The new prime time series starts this Sunday at 7pm, AND there will be new shows on daily too (at 3pm I believe), giving you the sunshine and escapism you need.”
Laura added: “Another positive is the house market is able to keep moving, and properties can be bought and sold.
“It’s obviously devastating that so many other places have to close again, particularly GYMS when we need them for our mental health AND to keep fit and healthy.
“If you are currently in the process of moving home, good luck, or if you are currently looking for a new home you will be able go continue to do so – BUT safely of course!”
