Explaining how much the trip means to her, Martine said: "Me & my shadow are sending you love from the beach! I can’t tell you how much I’m appreciating this trip! Jack co-manages me (As well as doing his main job of being a songwriter and producer! - I know... it’s a madhouse) and so we are together a lot but we work together loads!

We love Martine's beach cover-up – a chic patterned kaftan can elevate any look and take you from sun lounger to the bar with minimal effort. If you're lucky enough to get away this summer, this tropical Boohoo number is a total steal.

While Martine is actually in her mystery exotic location to take part in a shoot, the Love Actually star has been making the most of her downtime and showcasing plenty of stylish looks.
