Chloe Sims has revealed she has travelled to Mexico on a ‘work related trip’ amid Britain’s coronavirus lockdown.

The TOWIE star, 38, took to Instagram and shared a series of bikini photos of herself after landing in celebrity hot spot Tulum.

After several reality stars have received criticism for travelling to Dubai for ‘work’ trips recently, Chloe insisted an opportunity presented itself in Mexico that she ‘could not turn down’.

She wrote: ‘I HAVE ARRIVED IN MEXICO.. SO I WANTED TO GET AHEAD OF ANY NEGATIVE STORIES TO MAKE IT CLEAR, THIS IS FIRST & FOREMOST A WORK RELATED TRIP.

‘SOME OPPORTUNITIES HAVE PRESENTED THEMSELVES, THAT I FELT I COULD NOT TURN DOWN & SO AFTER FULLY CONSIDERING THE LATEST GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES. I DECIDED TO TRAVEL.’

Chloe added that she would be quarantining at her home in Essex as soon as she returns from the trip.

She said: ‘OBVIOUSLY I WILL BE QUARANTINING IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LEGAL REQUIREMENTS UPON MY RETURN.’

Perhaps trying to prevent a negative backlash from Instagram followers, Chloe notably turned off comments on the post.

Chloe looked incredible in the photos as she donned a red bikini that showcased her incredible figure.

The reality star also sported a pair of shades and a crisp white shirt as she posed outdoors at the Copal Tulum Hotel.

Tulum is popular with stars including Drew Barrymore and Kristin Cavallari with Love Island’s Eyal Booker and girlfriend Delilah Belle Hamlin also recently visiting the city.

Dozens of influencers who found fame on reality shows such as Geordie Shore and Love Island have spent the previous weeks soaking up the sun in Dubai while Brits back at home are in a nationwide lockdown.

Many have travelled abroad under the ruse that their trips are ‘for work,’ sparking backlash from fans who have been holed up in lockdown amid the pandemic.

Among those who have shared glimpses of their trips to Instagram are Love Island’s Laura Anderson, Francesca Allen, Arabella Chi and twins Jess and Eve Gale.

Geordie Shore’s Chloe Ferry is also in Dubai for ‘work’ while TOWIE’s Yazmin Oukhello and her beau James Lock have also been there for some time on ‘business’.
