STRICTLY’S Nicola Adams and girlfriend Ella Baig jetted off to the Maldives today on a work trip – escaping Tier 4 England.
The loved-up pair wore matching outfits as they arrived at Heathrow with their personalised luggage.
Boxer Nicola wore a cream hoody and black leather jacket, while Ella coordinated with a roll neck under her jacket.
On their way to the airport, Nicola filmed them in the back of a car and said: “We out. Strictly business. Isn’t that right, Ella?”
Once inside, Nicola commented how “dead” the airport was, before they enjoyed drinks and food in a departure lounge.
The couple reunited just days before Christmas after spending two weeks apart.
Nicola, 38, had returned to Strictly for one final dance after being forced off the show last month when pro partner Katya tested positive for coronavirus.
In order to take part she had to leave her 21-year-old girlfriend and isolate in a rented apartment for two weeks prior to the final.
Taking to Instagram, Nicola expressed her excitement at being reunited with her stunning partner, sharing a photo with Ella which said: “Finally get to see my baby tomorrow.”
Nicola spent the last two weeks learning her brand new routine with Katya before taking to the dancefloor together in the Strictly final.
They performed in front of the Strictly band and host Claudia Winkleman said afterwards: “That was unbelievable, thank you so much Nicola and Katya.”
After Bill Bailey won the competition, the Strictly stars and pro dancers partied together in the BBC studio until gone midnight.
Strictly’s first same sex pairing, Nicola and Katya, then left the party and headed to Nicola’s North London flat.
They arrived at the boxer rented pad at 12.30am — 30 minutes after strict Tier 4 measures came into play — following a boozy BBC after-show bash.
Katya, 31, and Nicola emerged just before midday.
But BBC chiefs insisted the pair were in a “support bubble” and broke no rules.
