The couple have been sharing plenty of snaps from their time on the idyllic islands to social media.

The duo are not the only UK celebrities to have celebrated New Year abroad.

The likes of Chloe Ferry, Hayley Hughes and couple Alex and Olivia Bowen were all pictured seeing in 2021 in Dubai.

As of December 2020, three quarters of the UK was plunged into Tier 4 restrictions – meaning travel abroad for leisure purposes is ‘not permitted’ with the exception of work, education and childcare purposes.

However, a number of British stars explained their trips have been for business purposes with many sharing their plans on their social media pages.
