"I hope we will build a really happy life here," says the 28-year-old TV star and model, who is a former Miss Universe finalist. "I'm confident we're making the right decision. Demy's going to grow up with so much opportunity. The schooling is very international so she'll learn a second language.

"Just the other day, Daniel and I drove to a flamingo-garden lake in the middle of the desert for an evening stroll. It has the world's longest zip wire, you can go skiing and there are endless activities for young children. Everything here is possible."

The decision to start house-hunting in Dubai comes after an unplanned five-month stay due to the pandemic. Amy and Daniel have been staying in the popular Jumeirah Beach area in a six-bedroom, four-bathroom property.

"Demy's going to grow up with so much opportunity," said Amy

The home features a lush Arab tea garden-inspired roof terrace, a relaxation space including a gym, a small cinema room, a lagoon with a shallow pool that is "perfect for Demy" and a verdant "jungle-style" gardens, says Amy.

She and Daniel first headed out to Dubai last year to visit Daniel's relatives when the Emirates were removed from the quarantine list. However, when they were due to leave, Demy became poorly with a tummy bug and they had to postpone their return. Then Britain entered another lockdown.
