The pair are both avid travellers and have flown everywhere from Greece to Sri Lanka. One of their first holidays together was to South East Asia, where Alex and Charlie explored Cambodia and Vietnam.

During the two-week trip, Alex treated fans to a black-and-white photo of her then husband-to-be. She joked: "My travel companion looking earnest....but probably just wondering what time lunch will be served. #indochina."

While Alex's job takes her all around the world, the globetrotter also finds time to travel with her husband. The couple hopped over to Gothenburg, Sweden for a winter city break last year and in a rare move, Alex uploaded a selfie of the pair, delighting fans.

Alongside the photo of Alex and Charlie looking perfectly relaxed and rested, she wrote: "A perfect weekend in Gothenburg."

A few months after their New Year's wedding, Alex and Charlie ventured to Sri Lanka. Their magical getaway involved visiting a national park, a safari trip and an excursion to a tea factory.

But most impressive of all was Alex and Charlie's gruelling hike up Sigiriya, also known as The Lion Rock of Sri Lanka. "This morning's mission is to get to the top of this. It's the 8th wonder of the ancient world," wrote Alex, adding "#getasweaton".

While she tends to keep her private life out of the spotlight, Alex does sometimes share photos of her husband. One of her earlier snaps showed Charlie at CarFest, a festival that raises money for BBC Children in Need.

The picture proved a hit with Alex's fans, with one commenting, "Ch cha Charlie total legend!" and another writing, "Hello Charlie Bear! Xx."
