Kady McDermott snaps at critic who slams her ‘business trip’ to the Maldives

Kady McDermott found herself snapping at her critics on Friday.

The former Love Island contestant took to Instagram to share a sunset photo of herself in a bikini, gazing out at the infinity pool and soaking up the evening heat.

‘My favourite time of the day!’ she captioned it, tagging @hardrockhotelmaldives and @trendingtravel.co.uk into the post.

Don’t come at me! Kady McDermott found herself snapping at her critics on Friday

But one follower – who evidently has been hounding her via direct message as well – was quick to slam Kady, 25, for being abroad while the majority of the UK are forbidden to travel and stuck in Tier 3 and 4 lockdowns.  

‘Breaking the rules again – don’t see this as a business trip!’ he remarked.

Unable to let it slide, Kady bit back: ‘Oh so because you don’t see it as a business trip it means it isn’t? Oh ok lol.

‘But if you mush know as you keep sending me DMS too I am here with @trendingtravel.co.uk and had a valid letter for travel from the CEO. Not everyone’s work is based in an office, David!’ [sic]

She went on: ‘I understand some people may not see this as “work” but advertising fashion brands, companies, hotels etc is how I pay my bills.

‘I don’t question anyone on how they pay theirs so don’t question mine. Happy new year!’ [sic]

Others agreed with the original critic’s comment, with one remarking ‘God how easy is that flying somewhere nice and getting pictured’ and another posting ‘Got her fella with her so can’t be that much of a “business trip”’.

Indeed, Kady is away with her boyfriend, former TOWIE star Myles Barnett, 26, who are currently enjoying a much less tempestuous period in their romance, having split up and got back together on a number of occasions.   

She went on: 'I understand some people may not see this as “work” but advertising fashion brands, companies, hotels etc is how I pay my bills. I don’t question anyone on how they pay theirs so don’t question mine. Happy new year!'

Another follower then piped up and bizarrely posted: 'Congratulations on the pregnancy!'

To which Kady snapped back: ‘Only thing in my belly right now is a pina colada and pad Thai!’

The snap saw Kady in a skimpy two piece, her long raven tresses falling loosely over one shoulder and covering her face and her torso – potentially sparking the pregnancy remark.

A flurry of reality stars have been slammed over the past few weeks for jetting off to the lives of the Maldives, St Barts and Dubai.

While some jetted out prior to the UK’s travel ban, when Prime Minister Boris Johnson enforced another lockdown on the nation, others have jetted off since then, under the ‘for work purposes’ loophole.

Despite the coronavirus crisis worsening, stars of TOWIE, Love Island and Geordie Shore appear to be soaking up the sun around the globe in their droves.

Most have flocked to Dubai, as the United Arab Emirates has played host to a number of stars over the past year, despite the consistent rules throughout advising against international travel, save for work or education.
