Laurence Fox has been criticised after he shared a photo of himself wearing a mask exemption badge – which he claims he bought on Amazon.
The 42-year-old actor has been critical of government rules around social distancing and the wearing of facemasks.
Taking to social media, he tweeted: “After a long period of consultation with myself, an extended review period and proper due diligence conducted with myself, I’ve received the badge that I ordered from Amazon. Thank you for being there for me.”
He signed off the tweet with a “#anxiety”

Scottish Government rules state that you must, by law, wear a face-covering in certain places indoors as well as on public transport.
Some, including people with certain health conditions are exempt from wearing a facemask.
