In her final 'holiday' photo, shared on Monday, Elizabeth wrote: "Alas, my #pretendvacation is drawing to a close; time to return to the mud & fog of my beloved Herefordshire. Fingers crossed it will snow so it'll be bikini time again… Just enough time to squeeze in a glass of ice cold champagne before I pack #stayhome #livingthroughmycameraroll."

In reality, Elizabeth and her 18-year-old son, Damian, have been isolating at the family's country home in Hertfordshire, along with a group of family and friends, who they formed a bubble with at the beginning of the pandemic in March last year.

The swimwear model likened their experience to The Waltons in an interview with HELLO! back in April, and detailed their days together, which included cooking, sharing out the household chores and limiting screen time, so that they didn't "turn into couch potatoes".

"There are nine of us," she revealed at the time. "I have my whole family here, including my mother, an aunt and a friend who has severe respiratory problems.

"I am completely paranoid that I won't be able to keep them safe, and I haven't let anyone leave the house apart from me. I just nip out to local food stores and wear a mask and gloves. I'm terrified of bringing the virus back to my vulnerable guests."
