Ranked: The reality stars who have lost thousands of followers whilst in Dubai

Anton lost 15k followers in the last month


Whilst the majority of the UK is hidden away at home, in trackies with Netflix on repeat, a number of influencers and reality stars have descended upon Dubai.

Cast members from Love Island, TOWIE and Too Hot To Handle have been sharing pictures on Instagram of their bikini clad Dubai adventures. And people have quite frankly had enough.

Olivia Attwood, along with many people on Twitter and Instagram, called out the influencers who were breaking lockdown rules claiming to be in Dubai for work. Olivia encouraged people to unfollow them and it may have worked.

At least 10 reality stars have seen a dramatic drop in their follower count in the last month following their trips to Dubai. However it is unclear if this is merely just a coincidence or people have decided to unfollow them for their lavish trips.

These are the reality stars who have lost the most followers whilst in Dubai:

Followers lost in past 30 days: 15k

Anton has been in Dubai for what feels like forever, he appeared to jet out in early December and has been keeping his followers updated with his stay.

Over the past month Anton has lost 15,000 followers, however he has defended his decision to travel to Dubai and said he was working on a number of business opportunities.

He said: “I just want to clear up from my point of view. I came out here at the start of December when travel restrictions weren’t in place.

“I was only meant to be here for a week. There’s a few business opportunities that have happened out here which you will see in a few weeks.”

Like Anton, Laura Anderson has responded to the backlash reality stars were facing over their travel decisions. She said she travelled to Dubai for her mental health and to earn money as she isn’t a “millionaire”.

In the past 30 days Laura has lost just over 13k followers from her Instagram, however Laura has now returned home to Scotland and is in quarantine.

Wes Nelson

Ex-Love Islander Wes has recently rebranded himself as a music artist and released a song last year that went viral on TikTok. However his music has not been enough to keep his followers as like Laura he has lost over 13,000 on Instagram in the last month.

Wes has been rather quiet on social media but did post a picture last week of himself in Dubai in the sand dunes.

Kaz Crossley

Kaz has been in Dubai since October and therefore classed as a “resident”, according to The Guardian.

Too Hot To Handle’s Nicole has been partying in Dubai with her cast mate Chloe, and has been posting a lot on Instagram since she arrived there in late December.

Francesca was only on Love Island in 2019 for 10 days and yet she managed to get over 500,000 followers from her appearance on the show.

In the last few weeks she’s posted a number of pictures from her time in Dubai, however it could have put followers off her content, as she’s lost over 6,000 in the last month.

TOWIE cast member James Lock has been in Dubai for a number of weeks, but claims to be working there.
