MailOnline contacted a spokesperson for Zara McDermott for comment at the time.
A source told MailOnline Zara and Sam, who live together in west London, stayed at luxury resort Ayada Maldives, where they previously visited in December 2019.
Caught out: Last Tuesday, Zara shared screenshots of messages she had received to her Instagram Stories, showing a different time zone
Slip up?: She then changed to reflect the time on her Stories posts to give the illusion she was in London
On Monday night, Zara uploaded a photo of her to promote her new edit with fashion brand Missguided, tagging the location of the Instagram post, ‘London’.
Fans of the couple became suspicious of their whereabouts last week, when eagle-eyed followers spotted something was off with Zara’s Instagram Stories.
Zara then started to share screenshots of comments sent by her fans on her Instagram Stories – with one showing her local time to be 11:14pm, instead of just gone 7pm as it was in the UK.
In a swiftly-deleted Instagram story, Zara posted a response from a fan, which read: ‘Accidentally unplug the TV whilst plugging the hoover in or just hoover in front of the TV’ alongside the comment: ‘This is a good one. “Babe I’m cleaning? Why are you complaining?”‘
After viewers spotted her local time, the next interaction reflected the correct time in London.
‘Meant to be in the Maldives right now but whatever’: Prior to their breakup, Zara and Sam had planned a trip to the Maldives in November alongside Louise Thompson and Ryan Libbey
At the point of Zara and Sam’s flight to the Maldives, London was under Tier 4 restrictions.
Travel abroad for leisure is 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 the Maldives.
All travellers over the age of 11 must undertake an obligatory test for COVID-19 within 96 hours before departure. The traveller must show proof of a negative result before embarking.
In Tier 4, no household mixing is allowed, though one person can meet one other person outside in a public space, while all non-essential shops and businesses must close, including personal care and indoor entertainment.
Nobody can enter or leave Tier 4 areas and residents must not stay overnight away from home.
While enjoying their holiday, 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.’
