Zara Holland was spotted soaking up the sun at a luxury hotel in Barbados ahead of her court date tomorrow for violating Covid restrictions.
The 25-year-old Love Island star is staying at the Hilton Hotel for £ 350 a night while her boyfriend Elliott Love languishes in a mosquito-ridden medical facility a few miles away on the Caribbean island.
Wearing a white sports bra and sarong, the model looked lonely as she stared out at the ocean from the 8th floor of the hotel.
Miss Holland has been accused of violating Barbados' coronavirus laws after trying to flee the island with Mr. Love, 30, when he tested positive for coronavirus.

She is due to appear in Bridgetown tomorrow where she faces a prison sentence of up to a year and a fine of £ 18,000.
One spectator said, “Zara looked thoughtful and nervous as she sat on the balcony looking out to sea.
She checked her cell phone carefully. She seemed concerned and seemed to have the weight of the world on her shoulders. & # 39;
While the model is waiting for tomorrow's hearing, she is in one of the most prestigious hotels on the island with two pools, three restaurants, a coffee bar, a jewelry store, its own white sandy beach with a palm tree front and a picturesque shady garden from the ruins of a former colonial fortress.
Meanwhile, Mr. Love is enduring less wholesome conditions at the Paragon Isolation Center, sentenced by former inmates for its poor conditions.
One said, "The quarantine shelters in Paragon have no air conditioning and very few windows. The mosquitoes are relentless.
“You sleep in the same room with several others and share a bathroom with dozens of others.
“You are being fed, but it is not conductive for work, even though there is WiFi.
"Perhaps you can handle minimal luxury for a short time when you know the reality best."
With her blonde hair pulled back, Zara still managed to catch a few rays on the balcony on a mild 29 degree day, eat fruit and talk endlessly on her cell phone

Another added, "Think of it as a big, no-frills hostel."
A source close to the police investigation told MailOnline: “Zara Holland lives at the Hilton Hotel Resort just outside Bridgetown.
& # 39; She can't leave the hotel.
Elliott is still in the isolation center. It's clean and safe, but pretty simple. & # 39;
Miss Holland, a former Miss Great Britain, and her partner were arrested at the airport while trying to flee the Caribbean island instead of quarantining her in a surveillance unit after testing positive for Covid.
Miss Holland apologized heavily to Barbados after citing a mix-up.
They were held as the Barbados government put in place tough measures to suppress coronavirus transmission to the popular winter vacation destination.
When Mr. Love tested positive for Covid on his arrival last Sunday, the couple were given red bracelets and told to stay in their room at the Sugar Bay Hotel for £ 300 a night until they were taken to a quarantine center in the north of the island .
Instead, they booked a flight on British Airways, cut off their wristbands and took a taxi to the airport, where, according to a local source, their names were hoisted some red flags by airport officials because of their short turnaround times in the country. The police were then alerted.
They were arrested and taken to the military unit, a basic facility where tourists are quarantined until they can take two negative tests. Mr. Love remains in the hospital.
When Zara was released from North Ferriby, East Yorkshire, she returned to the Sugar Bay Hotel where she had stayed but was asked by the manager to leave and moved to the Hilton.
"She returned to the Sugar Bay hotel after being released from quarantine, but the manager told her she had to leave for embarrassing the hotel by violating the Covid-19 protocol," the source added.
Meanwhile, her boyfriend, Mr. Elliott, is being held in a less appealing setting at the Paragon Isolation Center, which former inmates have convicted of poor conditions
A former inmate described the Paragon Isolation Center (pictured) as having no air conditioning and very few windows. They added, "The mosquitoes are relentless."
On Saturday, she heavily apologized to the island government and its angry residents, claiming the couple's actions were the result of massive mix-up and misunderstanding.
She told the island newspaper Barbados Today: “I would like to apologize to the entire country of Barbados for the massive mix-up and misunderstanding. I would never do anything to endanger an entire nation for which I have nothing but love and respect.
