Daisy Lowe insists she’s ‘trying to help the planet’ despite private jet use

Daisy Lowe insists she’s ‘trying to help the planet’ after revelling in Extinction Rebellion protests in London despite flying on private jets herself

  • Model Daisy Lowe has joined eco-activists bringing central London to a standstill
  • She has previously posed with her own private planes to jet around the world
  • Today said she was ‘trying to help the planet’ and refused to comment further 

Daisy Lowe has insisted she is trying to ‘help the planet’ as she defended her own use of fuel-guzzling private jets despite revelling in this week’s Extinction Rebellion protests. 

The fashion model, 30, has joined the eco-activists bringing London to a standstill this week and posed near the Houses of Parliament as part of the climate protests. 

However, she has previously posed with her own private planes and jetted around the world for holidays. 

Questioned by The Sun at her London home, she said: ‘I’m just trying to help the planet, that’s all,’ and refused to comment further. 

Daisy Lowe – pictured her in front of a private jet on a trip to Milan in 2017 – has revelled in this week’s Extinction Rebellion climate protests 

The model - seen here on the same trip to Italy - insisted today that 'I'm just trying to help the planet, that's all,' and refused to comment further

When Lowe flew to Milan in February 2017 she bragged to her 350,000 Instagram followers: ‘Leaving on a jet plane!’

She accompanied the post with a picture of her on the tarmac in front of a small private plane chartered by JetSmarter. 

The company, which has since rebranded as FlyXO, charges around £5,000 for a chartered flight from London to Italy. 

Lowe posted another, similar picture when she returned from the holiday.  

More recently, she has shared pictures of a luxury holiday in Paxos, Greece with her mother Pearl Lowe and father, singer Danny Goffey.  

The model has also collaborated with German carmaker Mercedes-Benz.

In an Instagram post last weekend she showed off her Extinction Rebellion badge with Mel B and artist Martha Freud. 

‘It is a terrifying reality we live in but we have the power to change the course of history and save our planet,’ she announced. 

‘Please join us in the rebellion starting Monday at 10am from Westminster,’ she urged in the post on Sunday. 

Police have confirmed 800 Extinction Rebellion protesters have been arrested in London so far during the protests. 

Activists say they will stage a ‘Hong Kong-style’ occupation of London City Airport for the next three days. 

Hundreds of police officers are being drafted in from across England and Wales to help the Metropolitan Police deal with the protests, which are now in their third day.
