The TV star addressed the negativity on her Stories, as she admitted some would be put off becoming an influencer after learning the realities.
Amid mounting criticism towards influencers and reality stars who have jetted to abroad on ‘business trips’ to escape the strict UK lockdown, Laura said:
‘This whole thing about everyone hating influencers, I’m just like f**k.. this is what I do for a job at the minute. I don’t want to feel c**p.

‘I’m thinking maybe, would it be a good idea to give more of an insight into the reality of being an influencer.
‘I think a lot of young people might want to do it, but you realise it’s not that great when you see the reality of it. I saw someone in my comments saying you’re on holiday, but when you’re working you’re not on holiday.
‘On holiday doesn’t mean just in the sun. I want people to understand then maybe they won’t get as annoyed, it’s not just right now, all the time.
‘I remember when Molly-Mae went into the villa everyone was like omg she’s an influencer, as it if was a negative thing. I thought it would be a good idea to give an insight so people don’t hate it as much and realise how hard it is.’
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson plunged England back into a March-style lock-down on January 5. Travel rules currently state that overseas trips are only permitted for work purposes.
New rules will require international travellers to come back negative after a PCR test before arriving in England. The rules will come into force from Friday.
From 4am on January 15, passengers arriving by boat, train or plane – including UK nationals – will 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.
Having her say: The TV star addressed the negativity on her Stories, as she admitted some would be put off becoming an influencer after learning the realities
Influencers have been under scrutiny after Olivia Attwood hit out at them for claiming they are ‘working’ abroad during the coronavirus pandemic.
Outspoken TV star Olivia, 29, took to her Instagram Stories from her Manchester home on Tuesday to criticise her co-stars for claiming they are working abroad.
Her video comes as it was revealed that travellers returning to the UK from the UAE will have to quarantine following a 52 per cent surge in the number of COVID -19 cases there – an undoubted shock for the influencer-packed city.
‘Being an influencer is actually really hard and I can’t create content for you guys here, so I am going to have to go on holiday but don’t worry I will keep referring to it as ‘work,’ the tongue-in-cheek video began.
Later, the blonde elaborated, telling her followers: ‘Oh my god I sound like an actual hater. Do you know what it is right, it’s just this meme that’s been going around which is making influencers, and it’s not all of them it’s only a few, look so bad.’
‘It’s the constant “I’m working, not on holiday” shout. There is a difference from being able to earn money wherever you are are to being there for work,’ the media personality pointed out.
Olivia explained that she has never pretended a holiday with her footballer fiancé Bradley Dack, 27, is a work trip, saying: ‘Whenever I go on holiday I’ll post content which I can monetise.
‘I’m still on holiday. I don’t go “Oh me and Brad have had the most amazing week in Portugal but don’t worry I was flat out working”. You just sound so stupid.’
