Laura Anderson admitted she felt guilty throughout her stay in Dubai.
The Love Island star, 31, claimed that she was a work-oriented trip because of the plague that flew to Dubai.
Laura, who recently said it was “hard” to be an influencer, now confesses her guilt as responding to fan assumptions about herself in a series of videos about her Instagram story.
She replied to the assumption: “I feel guilty about being in Dubai while the UK is sealed off. [sic]

Lauren, who opened the door to 1.4 million followers, sat in bed in brown fluffy clothes. “Oh my god. I felt guilty all along. No one knew how nervous and how fast I was going to be. So it was terrible to hear that people were angry at home.”
Laura added above the video: “The backlash was terrible and it still is. I don’t expect anyone to understand my situation.
“I apologize to everyone who is angry with me. It truly means because air wasn’t my intention. I sincerely felt that this was the only coping mechanism as a single volunteer.” [sic]
The Scottish reality star, who recently shared his sweet childhood snap, responded to more assumptions about his Dubai business trip as he was isolated from travel.
One critic wrote, “You are one of those people who think Covid is fake news and it can’t touch you.”
Embarrassed Laura in a video added to her Instagram story: “Which planet are you on?
“No, I know a lot of people with it. I know people who have lost a lot of people, Jesus, I do not think it’s fake news can not wait for the vaccine roll lays the baby!”
Meanwhile, another fan made a third assumption to Laura. “If you go to Dubai, you are not really visiting your family,” followed by a pink heart emoticon.
Laura explained: “Yes. It has become a trend, but it means you lived there before Love Island.
“It looks like the whole tarring was done with the same brush. It was a pretty tough time for the whole press situation… ”
Above the video, she added: “I left before level 4 started on the 26th because I wanted to see my family, not alone during the holidays.
“I’m trying to start a business there (I’m not ready to share it), but that’s what I was doing. It doesn’t affect me and I can do it almost anywhere depending on the brand.”
