The 52-year-old star took to Instagram on Friday to unveil a selection of snaps from their relaxing getaway, including the drool-worthy dinner she always enjoys whenever she stays there.

Tess revealed: "Feeling refreshed after a trip beside the sea, with @vernonkay and the girls. We walked, we ate incredible food (thanks @hoteltresanton for not taking my fave baked goats cheese salad off the menu) and we relaxed.
