Influencers joke Dubai travel ban is a ‘shame’ as they are stuck on sunny trip

British influencers have joked that it’s “a shame” they’re stuck in sunny Dubai.

Strict new rules mean all flights from the United Arab Emirates to the UK have been suspended in an attempt to get on top of Covid cases.

Those choosing to fly home on indirect flights will have to isolate for 10 days on returning home.

And while many reality stars and influencers made it back, others opted to stick it out in the sunshine.

Absolutely Ascot star Henry Simmons shared the view from his balcony, writing: “Oh what a shame.”

OnlyFans model Honey Evans echoed the joke. She wrote: “Flights from Dubai to the UK are banned. Guess i have no choice but to stay out here. Shame.”

And others don’t seem to bothered about the ban either, taking the time to get in some lengths at the pool or work on their tans.

Some influencers have recently been targeted by online trolls for their travels, despite their trips being for work being legal.

Laura Anderson, star of 2018’s Love Island, told that the backlash to her own Dubai trip became “horrendous”.

She’s one of those who made it back to the UK before the ban kicked in.

And Geordie Shore babe Chloe Ferry made it back on home turf just in time.

Laura is one of those who clapped back at the trolls following her Dubai trip.

She wrote: “This whole thing about everyone hating influencers, I’m just like f**kā€¦this is what I do for a job at the minute.

“I don’t want to feel c**p. I’m thinking, maybe, would it be a good idea to give more of an insight into the reality of being an influencer?”

Towie’s Yazmin Oukhellou hit back at her following’s criticisms.

She said: “I know a lot of people are getting a lot of stick for travelling out here at the moment, but we have come out here to work.”

Ferne McCann, meanwhile, headed to South Africa on a work trip, but recently returned.
