Because let’s be honest, we all love a bit of celebrity goss…

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

With so many A-listers (and B, C and D-listers) visiting the glittering emirate every day, it can be hard to keep track of who was spotted where.

So in case you were wondering who to keep an eye out for at The Dubai Mall, we’ve put together a list of some of the famous faces spotted in Dubai and the UAE this week…

Floyd Mayweather

Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather made a special appearance at Meydan superclub WHITE Dubai this weekend. Before hitting the club, Mayweather made time for a catch-up with Dubai rich kid Rashed Belhasa, aka Money Kicks.

Made In Chelsea‘s Frankie Gaff was also spotted holidaying in Dubai this week, shortly after confirming she has left the show for good. The reality star hit up all of Marina’s party spots, including ladies’ night favourite, Ramusake.

Olivia Buckland & Alex Bowen

Love Island couple Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen were also spotted partying it up in Dubai this week. Here they are at Palm hotspot The Penthouse:


Clearly Dubai was full of more English reality stars than you could shake a Swarovski-encrusted stick at this week. Here’s another Love Island alumnus, Kem Cetinay, enjoying some desert time (he’s giving us major Zac Efron vibes in this shot).
