Dubai is quickly becoming the mini-break and stopover favourite for the world’s rich and famous.

With so many A-listers (and, let’s be honest B-, C- and D-listers) visiting the glittering emirate every day, we bring you a weekly round up of who was spotted where.

Christopher Lloyd

The man who solidified Doc Brown’s character in classic flick Back To The Future was seen showing he’s still got it, posing with a bunch of Emirates flight attendants on his flight in for Comic Con.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

The Dane famous for playing Jaime Lannister is also here for Comic Con, and he totally charmed Stacey from team What’s On when she met him. “He’s the most handsome man I’ve ever met in real life,” she told us after meeting him (she also blurted that out to him too).


Tim Bergling aka Avicii (the DJ that people seem to either love or loathe) was in Dubai playing a concert down at the Dubai World Trade Centre. He’s got a few bangers under his belt – Levels, Hey Brother, Wake Me Up… but some may consider him a little too mainstream. They’re probably just jealous that he’s retiring at age 26.

Samantha Faiers

British TV personality and former glamour model, Faiers is probably best known for starring as herself in reality show The Only Way Is Essex. She also took part in the thirteenth series of Celebrity Big Brother, but we’re not sure anybody watches that anymore. She stopped by the city for a quick vacay along with her husband and baby.

Wiz Khalifa

In the city to play a show down at White club, Wiz posed with a tiger while in Dubai. Because no other rapper who has visited before has done this.
