Nadia Bartel has issued an apology after she was filmed breaking lockdown and snorting what appears to be cocaine on Thursday night. 

In a post shared to Instagram on Friday afternoon, the 36-year-old AFL wag wrote: ‘Hi everyone, I have let you all down by my actions.

‘I take full responsibility and I am committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure I make better choices in future.

‘To my family and friends, my business partners and the public health workers trying to keep us all safe, I am embarrassed and remorseful.

‘I am truly and deeply sorry. I hope I can earn your forgiveness and, in time, your trust.’

It comes as footage circulates on social media of Bartel seemingly snorting white powder at a gathering.

The three-second video was accidently uploaded to Instagram by Bartel’s friend and business partner Ellie Pearson on Thursday night.

Bartel snorts the powder off a $1.50 Kmart plate being held by a dark-haired woman, as a third woman displays a two-fingered hand gesture in the background.  

The clip begins with the fashion and beauty influencer appearing to lean over the plate with a rolled-up banknote in her left nostril as she presses her right nostril.

She then snorted the substance as one of the women watches on.

Private and public gatherings are not permitted in Melbourne, where Bartel lives, under Victoria’s statewide Covid restrictions.

Nadia’s apology – which includes an appeal for forgiveness from health workers – appears to confirm the gathering was held on Thursday evening. 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Bartel for comment. 

The video, which has been widely shared on social media, was mentioned at Premier Daniel Andrews' (pictured) daily coronavirus briefing on Friday. Mr Andrews said he hadn't seen the footage but stressed that all Victorians should follow the rules during lockdown
