Fed up Kym Marsh has condemned influencers and reality stars for taking lavish Dubai trips as the UK continues to lock down.

Heaps of celebs are out in the Middle East – with some even being paid to promote the country via social media.

Despite Covid-19 taking its grip back home, many have escaped to the sunshine since things worsened in December.

Love Island stars Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury were criticised for going before Christmas, with Chloe Ferry and Olivia Bowen joining the mass of stars seeing in the New Year in the UAE.

TOWIE's Amber Turner, Dan Edgar, Yazmin Oukhellou and James Lock were all out there too.

Love Island stars Georgia Steel, Ellie Brown, Laura Anderson and Jess Gale also appear to have recently been in the country.

Kym has had enough of it and says the obvious lack of social distancing is a big problem.

“Lots of influencers seem to be going abroad," Kym wrote in her OK! Magazine column.

"If you’ve got to travel for work then fair enough.

"But I personally would be putting off that trip and staying at home."

She went on: “From what I can see from the pictures of people in Dubai, every man and his dog is there and it doesn’t look particularly socially distanced!

“It looked like lockdown and coronavirus wasn’t happening and I can see it would be easy to forget about social distancing."

The actress explained that she had been offered an opportunity to go away before Christmas but turned it down, saying it was "too scary", wondering why people were risking it.

Kym then suggested that the UK close its borders, meaning nobody can travel abroad at all."

The United Arab Emirates is being removed from the UK list of travel corridors following a spike in cases.

Anyone who arrived after 4am on Tuesday must nows self-isolate for 10 days.

Worried UK officials say Covid cases have risen 52% in the UAE in the last seven days.

They cite "a significant acceleration in the number of imported cases" as the Foreign Office has also updated its advice to advise against all but essential travel.
