Katie Price and Carl Woods were among the first holidaymakers to jet out of the UK to Portugal as soon as restrictions were eased.
The couple boarded a bargain Ryanair flight to soak up the sun and have been keeping their followers up to date with their trip.
The former glamour model, 42, told her followers: ‘So guys, I would like to say that our flight from Stansted Airport today was one of the best times I have gone through customs, security, check-in… it went so smoothly although it was quite quiet at the airport.’
Fiancé Carl, 32, then chipped in: ‘I mean to be fair you shouldn’t even be on a flight, you’re bankrupt.’
Katie then revealed that Carl had treated her to the £7 flights for her birthday and a project they are working on, admitting that the PCR tests they have to have to fly have been more expensive than their trip.
Currently, Portugal is on the green list amid the coronavirus pandemic, but travellers still must book and pay for Covid-19 PCR tests in order to be allowed to travel.
Katie, who shared snaps of her sipping on a fresh coconut in the sun, clarified that she has been adhering to lockdown rules but was glad to get away as soon as it was allowed.
She told her followers: ‘So I’d just like to say that I’ve been dying for a holiday but I’ve been living and breathing lockdown with every other British citizen, not trying to make out that I’m an influencer just to get me to Dubai and other places to take pictures for Instagram.

‘So British public, British citizens I lived and breathed the lockdown like you, so now – if you can – book a holiday, but PCR tests – you have to do them, they are expensive.’
Katie and Carl have been joined on the trip by two male pals as her five children remain at home due to school.
A source close to Katie told The Sun that she is hoping that some time away may help her and Carl to conceive after the couple underwent tests to see whether her age or Carl’s past steroid use has meant it hasn’t happened yet.
They claimed: ‘Katie is over the moon to get away for a holiday with Carl and get him all to herself – she’s been feeling stressed trying to get pregnant again.
‘She’s saying it’s a baby-making holiday and so she’s hoping some relaxation in the sunshine will be good for them.’
