Whilst a sun-soaked holiday might not be the most budget-friendly option out there when it comes to beating the winter blues, there's no denying that a dose of sunshine really does help to lift the mood and trigger serotonin production.

As we continue to pine for the sunshine, we're looking to the stars for some much-needed bikini inspiration. From Rita Ora to Rebel Wilson and Salma Hayek to Gisele Bundchen, keep scrolling for a sneak peek inside their lavish getaways and their fabulous wardrobes to boot…

Millie Bobby Brown wears a colourful bikini

Millie Bobby Brown

Millie Bobby Brown, 19, soaked up some festive sunshine in a colourful floral print bikini. The sun-kissed Stranger Things actress was positively glowing as she lapped up the sunshine in her chic swimwear. 

It's not clear if Millie was travelling solo, with family, or with her beau Jake Bongiovi

The couple, who announced their engagement earlier this year after three years of dating, entered their first holiday season officially as fiancés, before presumably tying the knot next year.

Alex Scott

Football Focus star Alex Scott is a fan of winter sun, often jet setting to sunnier climes over the festive season.

This December, the former Lioness donned a candy cane striped bikini and sipped on an ice cold drink as she enjoyed an intimate festive getaway with singer Jess Glynne - who she was first linked to in October this year.

Rochelle Humes

Rochelle and her hubby Marvin Humes put their I'm a Celeb jungle woes behind them in December as they jetted off on a family holiday with their three children in tow. Ditching the glum London weather for some serious sunshine, the family of five travelled to the eternally balmy Abu Dhabi.

Eschewing her winter wardrobe, Rochelle, 34, was quick to debut a figure-flattering black bikini from Arabella London which she teamed with a stylish baseball cap from Ru & Rocka.

Songstress Rita Ora, 33, served up a slice of Ariel realness during her recent luxe getaway to New Zealand with her actor and filmmaker husband, Taika Waititi. In photos shared to Instagram, the Anywhere hitmaker could be seen wearing a tiny black bikini as she posed up a storm in a beautifully scenic swimming pool.

Captioning her carousel of pictures and clips, she penned: "I can’t begin to explain the weekend I have had. Thank you for these memories @piwakawakapoint".

Salma Hayek

Mexican-American actress Salma appeared ageless earlier in December as she turned up the heat in a tropical bikini emblazoned with colourful leaves.

Channelling her inner bond girl, the 57-year-old reclined against a sun dappled stone wall all whilst balancing on her tiptoes. Sharing a glimpse inside her blissful weekend, Salma simply captioned her Instagram photo: "#Sundaymood".

Brazilian model Gisele Bundchen, 43, returned to her native Brazil back in November – and her Instagram snapshots are proof that the South American country is next level beautiful.

In one joyous picture, the global superstar could be seen leaping through the air in a leopard print bikini. She appeared in her element as she soaked up the sunshine and dipped her toes into the golden sand beneath. Don't mind us as we add Brazil to the bucket list…

Rebel Wilson

Rebel made a strong case for neon orange earlier this month as she jetted off to far-flung Fiji for a tropical break jam-packed with beach days and water sports.

For her dose of vitamin C, the comedian and actress, 43, donned a figure-flattering long-sleeve swimsuit which she teamed with a pair of golden polaroid sunglasses. Fresh from the sea, the blonde beauty also treated herself to a refreshing coconut drink topped with juicy pineapple and a pretty hibiscus flower.

Dianne Buswell

While she didn't clinch the coveted Strictly glitterball, Dianne Buswell, 34, certainly came out on tops in the Aussie beach snaps category. Taking to Instagram in the run-up to Christmas, Dianne sent fans into a tizzy as she shared a blissful beach pic from her native Australia. 

Looking beautiful and bronzed, the Strictly pro turned heads in a vibrant spearmint bikini top which she paired with some black bikini bottoms. She accessorised with a wide-brimmed black hat and nonchalantly held onto a pair of sunglasses to protect against the sun's rays. Petition to swap London's grisly skies for Dianne's lapis lazuli dreamscape…
