The YouTuber, who tested positive for Covid-19 ahead of the series, explained that he got pulled up by producers after pictures of him emerged when he was moving from one BBC studio to another.
The singer appeared to break social-distancing guidelines after he was snapped walking with fellow Strictly star Maisie on November 13.
The duo were not wearing masks and HRVY has since admitted that they weren’t two metres apart like the government guidelines states.
‘It was me and a couple of other pros going from one studio to the next studio outside,’ he explained.
‘Obviously we try our best to socially distance when we are walking around the studios and outside, but obviously when you are walking and talking you don’t even realise.
‘But no one touched each other. I just think we were maybe slightly closer than two metres while we were talking. But also the cameras, when you get a picture taken of you it can make you look a lot closer than you actually are.’
‘The BBC told us off and everything is all good and everyone is trying their best to maintain all the rules and regulation. We are all good. We are all OK,’ he added.
Since the dancing competition was given the go-ahead, the BBC have put strict safety measures in place.
During the summer all the professional dancers and some crew self isolated for two weeks and were tested twice for coronavirus during that time.
They then all moved into a hotel together and were able to safely live and work together as one household.
On last night’s episode, HRVY and his dance partner Janette Manrara received a perfect score of 30 from the judges.
The pair performed a Couple’s Choice Street/Commercial dance routine to A Sky Full of Stars by Coldplay – and it was mesmerising.
Their scoring marked the first time in the 2020 series that a couple has achieved straight 10s.
It also marked the earliest point ever in the competition that a perfect score has been awarded, Claudia Winkleman informed an astounded HRVY and Janette.
Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday at 7.25pm with the results show on Sunday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
