SCOTTISH Love Island star Anton Danyluk has revealed he received death threats after moving to Dubai during lockdown.
The 26-year-old, who previously starred in Glasgow-based reality series Glow, explained that people had threatened to kill him in his new podcast with his mum Sherie Ann
The Scottish Sun reveals in the podcast What’s the Crack, he said: “I came to Dubai in December when travel restrictions weren’t in place – it was a working trip to promote a hotel.
“I got to know the owner, and then the opportunity rose to open a gym and fitness business in Dubai.
“I’ve got my working visa, so I’m not coming home.
“It’s been awful – I’ve had death threats, people calling me – it’s horrible that this sort of thing still happens after the death of Caroline (Flack) last year, but they still do it.”
He added: “I know people in the UK are getting annoyed because they see others saying they are working in Dubai when they aren’t, but I am starting my business.
“I’m a strong-minded person, but it does get to me some days.
“I hope my actions speak louder than words – I’ll keep my head down until I’m ready to show what I’m working on.”
The reality TV hunK, who had a gym in Airdrie, has previously spoken out in his Instagram stories about the issue.
He previously said: “I’ve just started to realise all the stick that influencers are getting back home, which I wasn’t aware of.
“I get it. You guys are frustrated back home, there’s a lot going on. I totally understand.
“I just want to clear up from my point of view. I came out here at the start of December when travel restrictions weren’t in place.
“I was only meant to be here for a week. There’s a few business opportunities that have happened out here which you will see in a few weeks.
“You’ve seen in the last two and a half weeks I’ve put things in place, I’ve been in the gym training.
“I’ve literally got my living and working residency out here at the moment.”
