Her Dubai holiday comes amid an increasing amount of fury over many influencers and reality stars ‘bending rules’ to jet abroad, which has only been heightened after Boris Johnson announced the nation would enter a third lockdown.
Under the latest national lockdown rules, which is now in effect, holidays are banned as international travel is only permitted for a strict number of reasons such as for work.
Within the UK, domestic holidays are also banned as you must stay at home at all times except for a limited number of ‘reasonable excuses’ such as shopping for essentials or work.
Reasons: ‘I know with everything that is going on in the world at the moment that travelling should be limited but I just wanted to reach out to you guys and say the reason I am travelling’
The Government has said if you need to travel you should stay local meaning avoiding travelling outside of your village, town or the part of a city where you live and look to reduce the number of journeys you make overall.
Meanwhile, this weekoutspoken TV star Olivia Attwood, 29, took to her Instagram Stories from her Manchester home to criticise her co-stars for claiming they are working abroad.
Her video comes as it was revealed that travellers returning to the UK from the UAE will have to quarantine following a 52 per cent surge in the number of COVID -19 cases there – an undoubted shock for the influencer-packed city.
‘Being an influencer is actually really hard and I can’t create content for you guys here, so I am going to have to go on holiday but don’t worry I will keep referring to it as ‘work,’ the tongue-in-cheek video began.
Later, the blonde elaborated, telling her followers: ‘Oh my god I sound like an actual hater. Do you know what it is right, it’s just this meme that’s been going around which is making influencers, and it’s not all of them it’s only a few, look so bad.’
‘It’s the constant “I’m working, not on holiday” shout. There is a difference from being able to earn money wherever you are are to being there for work,’ the media personality pointed out.

Olivia explained that she has never pretended a holiday with her footballer fianc Bradley Dack, 27, is a work trip, saying: ‘Whenever I go on holiday I’ll post content which I can monetise.
‘I’m still on holiday. I don’t go “Oh me and Brad have had the most amazing week in Portugal but don’t worry I was flat out working”. You just sound so stupid.’
New rules will require international travellers to come back negative after a PCR test before arriving in England. The rules will come into force from Friday.
From 4am on January 15, passengers arriving by boat, train or plane – including UK nationals – will have to take a test up to 72 hours before leaving the country.
They will need to present proof of a negative test result – using a PCR test or on some occasions a LAMP or lateral flow test – to their carrier on boarding while the UK Border Force will conduct spot checks on arrivals.
