After making it to the semi-final on this year's Strictly Come Dancing, Karen Hauer certainly deserves a well-earned rest. On Wednesday, the professional dancer's boyfriend David Webb took to his Instagram to reveal that the pair have embarked on their Christmas holiday together. Sharing a snap from their plane seats, the opera singer wrote: "Let the next adventure begin… Holiday is what I need." Although it is yet to be confirmed where they have jetted off too, it's likely the lovebirds are flying to Karen's family home in New York.
