New travel restrictions were put in place this week, due to a mutated strain of coronavirus which has been discovered in the UK.
The new strain is thought to be 70 percent more transmissible, and the travel ban will remain in place until December 31st.
Over the past few months, Jake has been living in Fermanagh with his dancer girlfriend Karen Byrne, and his country crooner brother Nathan.
