Over the weekend, police officers had to intervene after thousands gathered at Trafalgar Square in London to protest against Coronavirus restrictions.
Right Said Fred Face Backlash After Revealing They Attended Anti-Lockdown Protest
The “we do not consent” demonstration on Saturday afternoon saw protesters – the majority of whom appeared to wear face coverings or practise social distancing – gathering to voice their disapproval for a potential second lockdown to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
What you might have missed, though, was that two of the protesters were brotherly pop duo Right Said Fred.
The pair – famous for hits like Deeply Dippy and I’m Too Sexy – tweeted after the protest: “There was a really good atmosphere in Trafalgar Sq today.”There was a really good atmosphere in Trafalgar Sq today 👍 pic.twitter.com/OXKwSSfeBn— Right Said Fred (@TheFreds) September 26, 2020There was a really good atmosphere in Trafalgar Sq today 👍 pic.twitter.com/0I2i2EIWDo— Right Said Fred (@TheFreds) September 26, 2020There was a really good atmosphere in Trafalgar Sq today 👍 pic.twitter.com/4KJrXfdbkp— Right Said Fred (@TheFreds) September 26, 2020There was a really good atmosphere in Trafalgar Sq today 👍 pic.twitter.com/IXxH6xEFtd— Right Said Fred (@TheFreds) September 26, 2020There was a really good atmosphere in Trafalgar Sq today 👍 pic.twitter.com/FjQ2QYK0we— Right Said Fred (@TheFreds) September 26, 2020Right Said Fred, who are made up of brothers Richard and Fred Faibrand, also retweeted a number of messages from fans who spotted them at the demonstration:@TheFreds.absolutely star struck to see you both.

“When we’re fundraising for the Royal Marsden Hospital, which we do annually our time line is quiet. However, we go to a protest and everyone loses their collective shit. Funny that.”When we’re fundraising for the Royal Marsden Hospital, which we do annually our time line is quiet. However, we go to a protest and everyone loses their collective shit.

“This has voided their risk assessment and we have informed the event organisers they are no longer exempt from the regulations.
“We are now asking those in Trafalgar Square to leave. Officers will be engaging with crowds and informing them of this development.
“By leaving now, you can keep yourself safe and avoid any enforcement action being taken by officers.”READ MORE: Jedward Brand The Corrs Guitarist Jim 'Idiotic' For Support Of Anti-Face Mask Protest In Twitter Row So, How Did Right Said Fred Wind Up With A Co-Writing Credit On Taylor Swift's New Single?
