Amber Gill has defended her decision to head off to Dubai amid the UK's new coronavirus restrictions
Amber Gill has defended jetting off to Dubai amid the UK's new coronavirus restrictions.
The 'Love Island' star headed off to the UAE over the weekend, even though Brits have been discouraged from travelling, and Amber has now taken to social media to insist she had "no idea Tier 4 was a thing".
Alongside a photo of Amber having breakfast in a luxury hotel, the 23-year-old beauty wrote on Instagram: "Just want to put it out there that I had no idea Tier 4 was a thing.
"The flight here was booked way before. I thought the only changes were being made on the 16th meaning I was still allowed to travel for work."
Amber now fears she might be stuck in Dubai over Christmas and the New Year.
She said: "I have no idea what I'm doing. I was only supposed to be here 4 days. Now I don't know where I'm supposed to go or if I should stay here, it's all mad. (sic)"
Despite this, the TV star acknowledged she's fortunate to be enjoying herself in the sun while the UK is facing tighter restrictions during the winter.
Amber shared: "I like to laugh my way through life because if you don't laugh, you'll cry. I've never not been in Newcastle with my family for Christmas."
Fellow 'Love Island' star Molly-Mae Hague has also defended herself following criticism of her holiday snaps.
The blonde beauty – who started dating Tommy Fury during her time on the show – recently headed off for some winter sun in the Maldives.
She said: "In response to the messages I'm already getting about us being away throughout this time, please understand that Tommy and I left the UK from Cheshire which was in Tier 2 at the time.
"We didn't break any rules coming away. If we knew these rules were going to be put in place then obviously we would have never left the UK. The minute we arrive home we will be following government guidelines."
