Covidiots are planning their fourth "Come Dine With Me" party in breach of lockdown rules after police let them off without a fine.
Their last bash was several hours in when officers arrived to break up the party in Hull, East Yorks.
The Saturday night party sparked fury online with the six-strong group branded an "utter disgrace" and "selfish".
Jodelle Demouplied, one of the group, announced: "Come Dine With Me number four next week," HullLive reports.
Hitting back at a wave of criticism on social media, she said: "Like the caption says we're doing Come Dine With Me so the single ones ain't at home on their own. No parties about it.
"Can't wait for Come Dine With Me number four next week."
She added: "I'll go around seeing the people I love most. Thanks for the advice tho but it's not welcome here [sic]."
The Yorkshire city is set to be placed into Tier 3 lockdown restrictions with indoor mixing with other households banned this month.
Police described the women as "very cooperative" by Humberside Police after they arrived to break up the event – named after the Channel 4 dinner hosting competition – on Saturday, November 21.
A spokeswoman said they left the property "without the need for enforcement", and no one in the group was slapped with a fine, which under new laws can be up to £10,000.
The event came to light after Jodelle, who is understood to be one of those to take part, shared a picture of the group huddled together.

The other attendees did not respond to requests for comment.

"Upon attendance, our officers followed the approach of engaging with the group, explaining the regulations and encouraging them to follow them. The women at the property were very cooperative and left the property without the need for enforcement.
