As many are stuck in tough tier 4 restrictions across the UK, Nicola Adams has jetted off to the Maldives for a work trip with her girlfriend Ella Baig.
The Strictly Come Dancing 2020 star, who is reportedly banned from returning to next year’s show over ‘unfair advantage, has left the UK behind for some time in the sunshine with her other half.
And it seems the loved-up pair are having the time of their lives, with Ella taking to Instagram to show off the sensational trip.

Posing poolside, the blonde beauty invited her 17,000 fans to “come away with [her]” and she guided the camera around a sensational suite with a hot tub overlooking the ocean.
Walking around in a polka dot bikini, Ella not only showed off the view but her toned figure too as she reclined by the ocean.
The pair also enjoyed drinks on the beach to ring in the new year with neon lights adding to the spellbinding nature of the venue.
Dressed up and looking as happy as ever, Ella and Nicola posed for a photo together, and the blonde beauty wished her followers a Happy New Year.
Taking to her stories, Ella filmed as she enjoyed dinner on the beach with Nicola before strutting her stuff in a green skirt and netted top.
Ella also shared a photo of the tropical surroundings, with palm trees and turquoise water everywhere in the dreamy spot.
Meanwhile Nicola, 38, documented their trip to the airport with videos on her Instagram stories while in the cab and as they waited for their flight.
In the taxi, the boxer filmed the two of them and said: “We out. Strictly business. Isn’t that right Ella?”
The pair then enjoyed food and drinks in the departure lounge before heading onto the aeroplane.
Nicola’s trip comes after she was forced to exit this year’s Strictly Come Dancing due to her dance partner Katya Jones testing positive for Covid-19.
The BBC put out a statement confirming the news on 12 November, which read: “Nicola Adams and Katya Jones are to leave Strictly Come Dancing after Katya tested positive for COVID-19.
The olympian, who saved her mum’s life after she contracted meningitis, took to Instagram to share her sadness with her followers and to thank Katya, 31, for her time on the show.
She said: “Hey guys! I’m absolutely devastated my Strictly journey has come to an end so soon. I had so much more to give and so many people to win this for!
“But I just want to say a huge thank you to Katya for being the best dance partner anyone could ask for.
“She pushed me way out of my comfort zone and it’s been an incredible experience.
“I’m gutted to be out of the competition but in these unprecedented times and as frustrating as it is, the COVID measures in place are to keep everyone safe, and I’m doing what I can to help,” Nicola concluded.
