Love Island stars ‘bombarded with death threats’ after they escape UK lockdowns by jetting to Dubai


LOVE Island stars have been bombarded with death threats after escaping the UK’s lockdown by jetting to Dubai, it has been reported.

A series of high-profile influencers have faced backlash in recent weeks for travelling abroad during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic – and some seemingly flouting Tier 4 restrictions in order to do so.

And it appears the celebs are suffering the consequences of their actions, being targeted by cruel trolls who’ve sent nasty messages.

One anonymous agent revealed that they’d warned a mystery star against their trip abroad – and the star has since been bombarded with abusive messages, which say they hope they die of coronavirus.

The agent told The Mirror: “We manage their social media accounts and I’ve seen a number of death threats in direct messages.

“It’s been relentless. We warned them not to travel abroad while a lot of the nation is under severe restrictions as it’s a terrible look, but they ignored it.”

Stars have said that they are ‘working’ from the sun-soaked city

Brits have been advised to avoid international travel unless necessary for months, but Tier 4 restrictions – which were introduced in December – outright banned people from leaving their local area without good reason.

However, some celebs have claimed that the have gone to Dubai for “work”, although the government made it clear that everybody should work from home if they can.

The agent continued: “A lot of what constitutes work for them is doing vlogs or posting Instagram shots advertising diet drinks.

“It’s work but in a very loose sense. But it’s enough to allow them to travel – the free hotels offered in return for publicity are doubtless a nice perk too.”

Laura Anderson was branded ‘selfish and distasteful’ for her social media posts

Earlier this week, Laura Anderson was branded “selfish and distasteful” as she said she longed to go to the gym while on her Dubai break.

Amber Gill was also forced to hit back at critics when she posted photos from the same sun-soaked city.

Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury faced similar backlash shortly before Christmas, although they had jetted off before stricter restrictions were announced – as did Maura Higgins and Chris Taylor.

Gabby Allen insisted that she will be working from Dubai for the foreseeable after she travelled over.

Chloe Ferry has also sparked outrage

Other reality stars have also been slammed, including The Only Way Is Essex’s Chloe Lewis for showing off her lavish 30th birthday in the United Arab Emirates with no social distancing.

Geordie Shore’s Chloe Ferry also sparked outrage when she posted about how happy she was on her holiday.

Meanwhile, Abbey Clancy was forced to delete her family photos from Christmas and New Year in Dubai with husband Peter Crouch and their children after being trolled.

In addition, Love Island’s Zara Holland was arrested and fined in court after she and her coronavirus-positive boyfriend were caught as they tried to flee Barbados to escape quarantine rules.

Abbey Clancy ended up deleting her holiday snaps

One angry Brit previously tweeted: “Really is a kick in the teeth when we’re all stuck in the UK unable to go out or do anything and you’ve got all these celebs loving life in Dubai ‘working’.”

Another fumed: “Honestly how are celebs allowed to travel to different countries when Covid is about.

“No wonder why it’s spreading even more!!! Not hating just saying!”

And other stars have also taken aim at their fellow celebs for going abroad during a pandemic, including Amanda Holden, Christine McGuinness, and even X Factor twins Jedward.
