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.

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 loved-up couple wore matching black and white ensembles, with black trousers and leather biker jackets.

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.
