James caused a major stir on Twitter after the dancer addressed potential plans for over-50s having to stay at home.

In view of his 269,000 followers, he penned: "Although the older you are the more likely you are to get COVID-19, they are now saying over 50’s should shield.

"I believe it’s the younger generation that aren’t taking it serious so let’s make them shield and let the sensible people crack on."

He finished: "All they wanna do is party."

People flocked to comment on the post, which gained over 4,000 likes, but there was divided opinion.

One person agreed: "Exactly James. I have worked in school throughout lockdown and it was often stressful and draining. I am now enjoying my holidays. I wear a mask, I socially-distance, I wash my hands and carry antibacterial gel. "Four teenagers get on my bus with not a mask between them."

"See, I totally agree! There are some people my age that literally are ignoring the restrictions made and they’re moaning about being stuck yet they’re the ones causing it," another social media user tweeted.

While a third person added: "I’m 52 and I’ve done everything to protect my family. I only go essential shopping after tea time, when the shops are less busy. It’s the majority of the younger generation that are not taking this seriously. "Why should I be penalised and made to stay at home?"
