If you follow any Love Island, TOWIE, Geordie Shore or Real Housewives of Cheshire star on Instagram you'll probably notice that they're all in Dubai at the minute.

Georgia Steel, Demi and Frankie Sims, Chloe Ferry, and Dawn Ward are among celebs living their best life in the UAE.

Now usually, people wouldn't be bothered about influencers on holiday but considering the fact that we're currently in a pandemic and the UK is literally in lockdown some fans aren't so happy about the celebs on holiday.

And it seems that even TOWIE's Gatsby - aka Liam Blackwell - has thrown shade at his co-stars in his latest Instagram post.

The reality star posted a photo of himself sitting on a unicorn inflatable - indoors, in Essex.

He captioned the photo, "Working in 🤥 #AD #Influencer".

Cast your mind back to 2013 when One Direction was very much a thing and Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards were ENGAGED. The 1D star proposed but things ended two years later following reports that he dumped her via text - although he denied the rumours.

Vicky Pattison was left devastated after photos of her fiancé John Noble surfaced of him getting up close and personal with another woman. Safe to say their engagement didn't go ahead and she was forced to change her wedding reality show so that it focused on their split instead.

Gemma Collins and Rami Hawash

Back in 2013 Gemma Collins got engaged to Rami Hawash after he proposed by sticking her ring in a Christmas pudding. The perfect kind of proposal, tbh. It's pretty obvious that things didn't last because The GC has been in an on/off relationship with James Argent ever since.

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson13 of 13

Throwback to when Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson got engaged just weeks after they began dating. Things seemed serious (she even named a song after him) but they called it quits four months later.

And we're not the only ones as hundreds of people rushed to praise him for his post with one person writing, "Lmaoooo 🤣🤣🤣🤣 luv this good to see u following the lockdown rules unlike some!!!!".

"Shots fired Lockie and Yaz 🤣🤣🤣," joked another.

Someone else said, "I hope they do not get any more influencing work tbh".

Even Chloe Sims joked, "Lol you hater 😂😂".

But her comment didn't go down well and one person hit back writing, "Not a hater, he's literally stating facts. How most celebs are running to Dubai and other countries when it's a bloody pandemic. Selfish it is."

Lockdown surgery! Is Chloe Sims a victim of shock new trend?

On the government website it states the rules surrounding working during lockdown: "You can only leave home for work purposes where it is unreasonable for you to do your job from home.

"This includes, but is not limited to, people who work within critical national infrastructure, construction or manufacturing that require in-person attendance."

It goes on to say: "If you do leave home for a permitted reason, you should always stay local - unless it is necessary to go further, for example to go to work. Stay local means stay in the village, town, or part of the city where you live."

And for rules around flying abroad, well, it clearly says: "You cannot leave your home or the place where you are living for holidays or overnight stays unless you have a reasonable excuse for doing so. This means that holidays in the UK and abroad are not allowed."
