Love Island's Laura Anderson branded ‘selfish and distasteful’ after saying she longs for the gym on Dubai break

LOVE Island's Laura Anderson was branded "selfish and distasteful" for saying she's desperate to go to a gym on her holiday to Dubai.

The Scottish beauty sparked fury in her Instagram followers by sharing her gym woes on the day the UK was plunged into a third lockdown.

Her fans back home had just been ordered to stay home and not travel, when Laura shared a bikini photo from Dubai and captioned it: "I never thought I’d say this but I just want to go to the gym…

"It took last year to make me (and I’m sure a few of you) eventually realise how important it is to keep our bodies moving!

"I’m very new to any sort of training so I can’t even begin to imagine how all consistent gym goers feel without their normal endorphin release yet again. I know a lot of men out there in particular are struggling 💪🏼

"Hopefully we can all try something new and pull through the now for our minds sake more than anything!"

One of her followers shot back: "Your very lucky that's all your worried about I haven't seen my kids and grandkids in weeks. People losing their loved ones. Be grateful for what you have and think of others at this hard time."

Another follower shared their thoughts on her post with a lengthy reply.

They said: "Gyms are open in Dubai … Pulling together would have been not travelling through a pandemic and then writing utter s**t about pulling together. What planet do all of you live in because its a tone deaf one (sic)"

"Have any of you self awareness? Your a beautiful lady but honestly are yous all sitting in Dubai chatting to each other who can write the most hypocritical posts bout being in tune with themselves or pulling together or some other utter s***e . And btw pulling you lot up on the absolute hypocrisy of your posts from Dubai is not trolling because that's what we will hear next your all being trolled. Being trolled and rightly criticising these posts are different (sic)"

And one more snapped: "For our minds sake? You’re moaning that you miss the gym while youre sat in a bikini in Dubai with no idea what the current lockdown is like in the UK. So distasteful"

However, other were quick to defend Laura including one Dubai resident.

Another fan said: "seriously?? I live in Dubai and it’s welcome for tourists. Stop trolling and leave @lauraanderson1x alone. Mind your own business ffs"

Brits have been told to stay home and social distance and they not allowed to travel abroad for a holiday according to the government's lockdown rules.

A stream of UK celebrities have descended on the country in recent weeks and months because it is one of the few still open to Brits without needing to quarantine or have a negative test.

Dozens of Love Island stars escaped the coronavirus chaos in the UK and visited Dubai in recent weeks including Love Island's Maura Higgins, Mollie Mae and Amber Davis, Ex on the Beach star Georgia Harrison, Towie favourite Amber Turner, and Celebrity Big Brother star Stephen Bear.
