Over the past few weeks, countless influencers have flown over to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for ‘business’ – AKA to escape Britain’s third lockdown. As London’s hospitals are overwhelmed by COVID-19, stars from Love Island, Geordie Shore, and TOWIE have been spamming the TL with photos and videos of themselves partying on holiday.
