Flouting lockdown rules? Tanya Bardsley has appeared to break strict COVID-19 travel rules by jetting to Dubai with her friends
WAG Tanya – who is married to Burnley footballer Phil Bardsley, 36 – appeared in great spirits as she partied with her loved ones at the famous restaurant.
The media personality was joined by her 35-year-old ‘bestie’ Catherine Mason – a convicted cocaine dealer who was jailed for her role in a gang’s £1.6million smuggling operation.
The model and entrepreneur Lystra, 43, who was accompanied by her influencer daughter Jasmine, 19, on the holiday, have failed to post about their getaway on social media.
A representative for Lystra confirmed she’s in the country for business, telling MailOnline: ‘Lystra Adams has travelled for legitimate work purposes, as allowed by current guidelines.
‘She will continue to follow these correctly and will be returning to the UK this week to self isolate.’

MailOnline has contacted a spokesperson for Tanya for comment. In November 2020, Tanya revealed she had her entire home disinfected after her household all tested positive for Covid-19.
The former FHM star shares Rocco, 11, and six-year-old Renz, and Ralphi, four, with her sportsman spouse, and also has daughter Gabriella, 18, from a past romance.
In recent weeks numerous stars have faced backlash for jetting abroad in the grips of the COVID-19 pandemic – with most of the public unable to see their families and loved ones over the Christmas period per government guidance.
On December 31, Tanya and Lystra’s home county of Cheshire was placed in the highest tier of restrictions, meaning all non-essential businesses had to close and any international travel was banned.

Travel abroad for leisure was banned under Tier 4 guidelines with exceptions only allowing reasons such as work, education and childcare.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office advises against all but essential travel to Dubai.
Since then, the country has been plunged into a third lockdown, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirming the message from the government is to now ‘stay home, protect the NHS and save lives.’
New rules require international travellers to come back negative after a PCR test before arriving in England.

Passengers arriving by boat, train or plane – including UK nationals – have to take a test up to 72 hours before leaving the country.
They will need to present proof of a negative test result – using a PCR test or on some occasions a LAMP or lateral flow test – to their carrier on boarding while the UK Border Force will conduct spot checks on arrivals.
New arrivals who flout the rules will face a minimum £500 fine, while the operator who transported them will also be fined.

Passengers will still have to quarantine for 10 days regardless of their test results, transport minister Robert Courts said in a statement.
British nationals attempting to return home who test positive must not travel and must follow the local guidance in their host country, and contact the nearest consulate if they need support.
Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Ajman, Fujairah, Umm Al-Quwain, Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah have been added to the UK’s quarantine list – meaning social media stars at the Middle Eastern holiday hotspot will need to self-isolate for 10 days.
