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

Dubai is 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…

Rita Ora

British singer Rita Ora jetted into Dubai this week to perform for a private party at Sean Connolly at Dubai Opera. The Anywhere singer shared some snaps to her Instagram Stories of the glamorous event, before posting this pic of herself in her trackies at the airport. Respect.

Sean Connolly

The man himself, chef Sean Connolly (no, not Sean Connery), got behind the pots and pans for the occasion.

Imran Khan

Pakistan Prime Minister and former cricket star Imran Khan is in the UAE on his first foreign trip since coming into office in August. Here he is with HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi.


Case of the Ex singer Mya was in Abu Dhabi this week to launch the new season at Empire Yas. Here she is completing a soundcheck before the gig…

Rykard Jenkins

Like so many before him, Love Island star Rykard Jenkins has been partying it up in Dubai this week. We were particularly intrigued by this shot of him clad in a velour tracksuit in the Dubai desert.
