Ex Love Island star Georgia Steel was accused of flouting Muslim law in the Maldives after posing topless for social media snaps over the weekend.
But this didn’t stop the reality personality-turned-influencer, 22, from promoting her latest collaboration with racy underwear brand Boux Avenue.
She snapped shots of herself on her bathroom floor as she continues her stay in the tropics, wearing a skimpy lace pink long-line bra, knickers, stockings and suspenders.

Showing off her lithe frame and bronzed limbs, she captioned the snap: ‘One thing I’ve learnt is that it’s very important to be your own valentine before anyone else’s.’
Georgia is apparently abroad ‘for work’, clearly unable to model the underwear from her bathroom floor in the UK.
Her antics abroad have outraged locals as she has hopped from Dubai to the Maldives, despite COVID-19 killing over 2 million people globally, with the UK in a strict lockdown.
According to The Sun, her latest topless snap particularly riled up the locals.

Top(less) to bottom: She has been slammed by Maldives residents for posing topless for Instagram snaps, according to The Sun
The Sun reports that a local source said: ‘It may seem strange to Westerners, but coming here and failing to observe our laws and customs is incredibly insulting.
‘Influencers who think the Maldives is just a great backdrop for their Instagram should stop and think before one ends up in jail.
‘The resorts could also be in serious trouble if guests like Georgia are found to be generating [nude] images on the premises’.
The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office states, of the Maldives: ‘Local laws reflect the fact that Maldives is an Islamic country. Violations of local laws may lead to a prison sentence.
‘Nudism and topless sunbathing are not allowed anywhere, including on resort islands.
‘Public observance of any religion other than Islam is prohibited. You should respect local traditions, customs, laws and religions at all times and be aware of your actions to ensure that they don’t offend, especially during the holy month of Ramadan or if you intend to visit religious areas.’
Oh! The reality personality-turned-influencer, 22, has been abroad for weeks, claiming to be there ‘for work’m posting sultry snaps to social media to advertise brands
There are still laws that can lead to public floggings or death should they be broken.
MailOnline has approached Georgia’s reps for comment.
Georgia posed for her latest topless snap while soaking up the sun on the beach on Thursday.
She wore just a blue patterned bikini bottom and a sun hat in the snap.
Georgia styled her brunette locks into plaits as she posed next to a tree while fixing the camera with a sultry stare.

In another snap, the reality star looked away from the camera as she fixed her hair.
Georgia, who appeared on Love Island in 2018, has been documenting her sun-soaked Maldives getaway in detail for her 1.6million Instagram followers.
She is holidaying currently with another former Love Islander Joanna Chimonides.
Despite the UK being in national lockdown, Georgia and Joanna flew from Dubai to the Maldives.
Georgia previously told her Instagram followers the ‘work’ trip had been planned for a long time and she was thankful it could go ahead despite the pandemic.

She captioned one snap: ‘I feel so lucky to be able to travel with my job at the moment.
‘I’m so grateful that I’ve been given the opportunity to work with @velassarumaldives for the next week and make memories that are going to last me a lifetime. I thank the universe every day.’
However, their fun-filled getaway might be overshadowed on their return as travellers returning to the UK need to present proof of a negative Covid test result.
New arrivals who flout the rules will face a minimum £500 fine, while the operator who transported them will also be fined.
Passengers will still have to quarantine for 10 days regardless of their test results, transport minister Robert Courts said in a statement.
