Can you start a side business whilst furloughed from your main employment?

Whilst furloughed from my main employment am I allowed to start my own side business?

 

Helen: "Yes, absolutely, you can start a side venture to your employment if you're furloughed.

 

However, you cannot be doing any work for your current employer, even in your new venture. It has to be totally separate and then it's ok for you to be furloughed from one and working else where."
