You know what will make you feel better about being stuck in the UK, where there’s currently a 70% chance it’s raining right this very minute? Celebrity beachside getaways!
Ah, it’s the most wonderful time of the year – when a bunch of famous people sod off to picturesque, idyllic locations we can only dream of, where they’re surrounded by warm seawaters, bountiful cocktails and probably beds that are fashioned out of old clouds.
It’s oh-so-easy to fall into a trap of loathing and jealousy when we see these stars pay for some exorbitant PCR tests and book a flight to a glamorous location, so we’ve made the job even easier for you by sharing the kind of holiday snaps that will make your blood boil just as if you were sunning yourself on a Maldives beach.
One can only assume these stars are plucking sand from where sand should not go and to that we say, good. Deserved, really.
From Amanda Holden’s glorious, bikini-clad escape to Selling Sunset’s Chrishell Stause showing off her rig in Mexico and Kate and Rio Ferdinand’s sun-soaked family fun, frankly it’s getting hard to hide our holiday envy by the fifth paragraph…
Frankie and Wayne Bridge
Fresh from the I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here castle, Frankie and husband Wayne took their two young sons, Parker and Carter, on a delightful little getaway to some sandy shores.
Posing on the beach in front of a Christmas tree, the Saturdays singer wrote on Instagram: ‘When I was in the castle… the thing that got me through… was picturing Christmas with the family 🎄 … especially the Twinnies ❤️ and dreaming about being on an island with no one other than Wayne and the boys 😍 … so the minute we knew we weren’t going to be able to see the ones we love… like so many other people this year 🙄… we decided to get out of there and have some much needed family time ☀️ in the warm!’
In the warm? One can only dream…
For the past few days now Amanda has been poking the green-eyed monster within by sharing a series of gorgeous updates from her holiday alongside husband Chris Hughes and their daughters Lexi and Hollie.
From Boxing Day cocktails and bubbles in the sea (the good kind of bubbles – in a glass), the Britain’s Got Talent star is well and truly living it up on a beach most definitely not in the UK.
Similarly, Myleene and her brood have been making the most of the festive period by packing their bags and heading overseas. Well, either overseas or Whitby has had one hell of a glow-up recently.
From taunting our distance from the beach bar (‘Hands up, who’s getting in the next round’) to giving us swimsuit envy (‘Going for gold’), Myleene’s holiday has it all.
The star took off with fiance Simon Motson, their young son Apollo, and Myleene’s two daughters, Ava and Hero, for a Christmas break that appears to be extending into the New Year.
Sorry…did we mention we’re positively smoking with jealousy?
Former Made In Chelsea star Binky Felstead spent Christmas living it up in Abu Dhabi ‘trying to channel her inner Bond Girl’.
The reality star and her family soaked up the luxe vibes at swanky St Regis Hotel as well as the sparkling pool of Saadiyat Beach Club, before trying, unsuccessfully, to master a perfect dive from a seaside swing on Zaya Nurai Island.
Luckily the videos live on in perpetuity for our entertainment…
Kate and Rio Ferdinand
Kate and husband Rio, and the kids, appeared to be sunning themselves in a Maldives-esque landscape, judging by the pair’s son walking along a beach with some overwater bungalows in the background.
She shared some intimate insights into the family holiday, including a sweet photo of her cosying up to Rio, who was having one massive laugh for the camera, while the family was also seen riding around an island on bikes, and taking in the sea views from a glistening pool.
We suppose, as they say, this is how the other half live.
She wrote alongside the series of snapshots: ‘Grateful for the most fabulous holiday with my special family, memories to last a lifetime.’
Ah, happy to join you on the journey, Kate.
From a place we’d rather be, Hollywood star Halle and partner Van Hunt were enjoying some over-water times, with the Oscar-winner posing in a…bed…over…the sea?
In another, she and Van’s feet are seen with the crystal waters in the background as our holiday envy reached new heights.
She didn’t say where she was hanging, but we’re starting to notice a theme with these celebrities…
Taking in a glorious outdoor shower in Cabo San Lucas, a recently-single Chrishell poked fun at her recent statement on wanting kids after her split with Jason Oppenheim.
Clad in an animal-print bikini, the reality star wrote: ‘Well these eggs aren’t going to fertilize themselves 🤣🤣
‘Or maybe they will…who knows. Until then, 2022 bring it on.’
Model Adut was living THE life last week as she shared a series of snapshots from a blissful getaway for the festive season, as well as her birthday, in Talum, Mexico.
She wrote: ‘Living and it’s almost my birthday 😍 Merry Christmas Eve everyone.’
And for her 22nd birthday, it was us who was given a gift…in the form of about a billion seaside bikini pics.
Former Love Island star Montana is doing something different this year and *checks notes* wait, nope, she’s also on a tropical island, spending Christmas in Barbados.
Enjoying the festive period with her loved ones, Montana mused: ‘Merry Christmas to you lovely lot. Sending so much love, doesn’t matter if you’re spending Christmas with family or friends, you’re loved 💜🎄PS this is my FAVOURITE BIKINI 👙.’
Well if you can’t wear your ‘favourite bikini’ on a Christmas jaunt to an island, when can you, eh?
Anyway, hope you’re all enjoying living vicariously…Credit: Original article published here.
