Sophie Piper has angered some of her followers by sharing snaps from her trip to the Maldives.
The Love Island 2020 star, 21, and sister of Rochelle Humes has taken to social media to share a look at her time out of the UK.
It is unknown when Sophie travelled to the Maldives, if she is still there, and the purpose of the trip.
Posing in a pink one-piece Boohoo swimsuit in front of blue waters, Sophie captioned a photo: “Trust the timing in your life.”
Earlier in the week, Sophie shared a shot from the Hard Rock Hotel in the Maldives which showed the sky and palm trees at dusk from her stay.
She captioned this image: “Magical sky.. forever counting my blessings”.
The star has received criticism on the posts who have slammed her for sharing the snaps of her trip abroad.
One Instagram user penned: “I really didn’t think Sophie would be one of the idiot influencers going on holiday now”.
A different person wrote: “Another idiot love islander traveling during a global pandemic claiming its work because it’s so hard to stay at home “.
Meanwhile, another rejected the idea it was jealousy that was causing anger against influencers on these trips.
They penned: “it’s not always about jealousy. If we are still in this bad situation is also because people can’t say the f home. Not traveling for a few months is not an unreasonable exchange for us going back to normal”.
Despite the criticism, is unknown when Sophie went on holiday and whether or not the trip met UK travel guidelines by being on essential business.
The Mirror has reached out to a representative of Sophie Piper for comment.
The snaps come as a number of social media influencers have come under fire for heading abroad during the second peak of the Covid-19 pandemic in the UK, including the likes of Molly-Mae Hague, Tommy Fury, and Chloe Ferry.
“On holiday doesn’t mean just in the sun,” she explained on Instagram.
However, former Love Island star Olivia Attwood took a swipe at influencers for calling their lives “hard” and resented the trips abroad being referred to as work.
Olivia said: “It’s the constant, ‘I’m working, not on holiday’ shout. There is a difference from being able to earn money wherever you are to being on holiday for work.”
