Pigs aside, Penny and her husband have enjoyed a magical start to the summer, lapping up the sunshine in Croatia. 

TV star Penny shared some incredible photos of their time away, and we can't help but feel a little jealous every time we look at her Instagram.

On Thursday, the 49-year-old uploaded two gorgeous photos from her summer break – one showing the beautiful old town of Split and another of the port at sunset. The colourful buildings and outdoor eating areas of the restaurants gave fans total summer vibes.

Among the places they've visited are Dubronvik, where they were spotted strolling around the walled city, and Trogir, where they enjoyed a dinner date at Calebotta restaurant. 

Sharing a photo outside the eatery, Penny, who looked gorgeous in a little black dress, wrote: "Best dinner."

Earlier in the month, the holidaymakers also travelled to the French island of Corsica, where Penny posted a photo of the bright, blue sky and cobblestone buildings.

What's more, Penny and Rod celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary in mid-June, dressing up for the occasion and enjoying a takeaway meal in their car, which they parked close to London's Hyde Park.
