Rylan Clark-Neal has slammed influencers who have travelled to Dubai amid the coronavirus pandemic.
A host of reality stars and influencers have flown to the United Arab Emirates in recent months, with many insisting their travels were for “work” purposes.
While they’ve been sunning themselves abroad, Rylan has been busy working on major shows in the UK – including Ready Steady Cook, Supermarket Sweep and Strictly spin-off It Takes Two.

Speaking to The Sun, Rylan said: “The things I work on are worthy of doing. I’m not going to Dubai on a plane and taking photos in my bikini.”
“I’m actually going to work and hosting programmes like Ready Steady Cook and showing people how to cook a meal for under a fiver, which is handy right now.”
“I wish anyone luck however they make money, whether that’s online, in a shop, however you do it — and good luck to the influencers.”
“But I just feel at a time when there are a lot of things going on, seeing pictures of people getting on a plane going to a foreign country and lording it up on the beach for work purposes — well, I can’t believe how much work there seems to be going on in the UAE!”
The news comes after Love Island star Laura Anderson recently apologised to “everyone she upset” by travelling to Dubai during the pandemic.
