Laura Anderson is reportedly going to move to Dubai permanently.

The 31 year old, who recently shared her eyebrow disaster and the product she used to help them grow, previously lived in the sunny UAE destination before appearing on Love island and moved back to Britain following her time in the villa. She's been going back and forth ever since.

However, now it's been said the brunette beauty has decided to leave the UK behind once again to make Dubai her home for good as she's had "such a hard time" in lockdown amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“Laura has decided it's time to move back to Dubai for good," a source told The Sun Online.

The source went on to speak about the "trolling" Laura has received in Britain as they said: "Laura has struggled with being trolled while in the UK and received a lot of backlash when she went on holiday to Dubai during the pandemic.
