Strictly Come Dancing can involve long hours for both the celebrities and the professionals, so where do stars such as Gorka Marquez and Janette Manrara go to relax when they're not impressing fans with their dancing skills? On holiday, of course!
2020 has been a strange year for everyone when it comes to travel, but we take a look back at some of the Strictly star's most incredible breaks, whether they managed to get away between the two coronavirus lockdowns or not.
Dianne Buswell - Mykonos
Mykonos is one of the most picturesque holiday destinations in Europe, and Dianne Buswell and Joe Sugg made full use of this by posting an array of loved up pictures on Instagram. Just look at the sea views from their 5-star hotel. Cavo Tagoo Mykonos...
Nadiya Bychkova - Croatia
In July, Nadiya Bychkova jetted off to Croatia to spend some quality – and sunny – time with her fiancé Matija Skarabot and daughter Mila. As she enjoyed her stay in Hvar, a Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea, the dancer shared snaps of herself in a white bikini and another that showed the family-of-three enjoying some hot drinks.
Gorka Marquez - Tenerife
Before the birth of their daughter Mia, Gorka Marquez and Gemma Atkinson jetted off to Tenerife to enjoy some quality time together. As well as relaxing in The Ritz-Carlton, Abama - or in Gorka's case, jumping into the pool - the couple also took a trip to Mount Teide which had a sentimental meaning to Gemma.
Speaking of her late father, she said: "We used to come every year and do the hike so it was bitter sweet, but I know he somehow helped drag me up there."

Janette Manrara - Tenerife
Gorka is not the only one who loves the Spanish island! Janette Manrara and Aljaz Skorjanec also chose to celebrate their third wedding anniversary at the romantic location. Janette, 36, marked the special occasion with several loved-up photos, including ones of them kissing in one of the pools before Janette pushed her husband under the water.
Johannes Radebe - Mexico
Johannes posed up a storm while on holiday in Mexico in 2017. Wearing small black speedos and sporting short blonde hair, he soaked up the sun in Cozumel, a Mexican island in the Caribbean Sea.
Despite the ocean stretching out behind him, many fans seem to focus on his toned abs, with one commenting: "Wow incredible body." He also took a trip to Costamaya, located about 120 miles south of Cozumel, where he sipped on cocktails at a bar on the beach.
AJ Pritchard - Crete
In July 2019, AJ Pritchard whisked girlfriend Abbie Quinnen off to the Greek island of Crete for a sunny getaway, sharing a sweet picture of them cuddled up on Instagram with the caption: "Feeling HAPPY…[heart emoji]".
But she wasn't the only one he took! It seems the 26-year-old has introduced Abbie to his parents Adrian and Debbie Pritchard, who joined them for dinner at the Aldemar Knossos Royal resort in the north of the island.
Giovanni Pernice - Italy
In July, Giovanni Pernice shared snaps from his idyllic break in Portofino, where he enjoyed stunning sea views at the Belmond Hotel Splendido. And he even met up with fellow Strictly professional Aljaz for dinner! We wouldn't mind trying their tasty seafood dishes…
Amy Dowden - UK
Amy spent her birthday weekend in August 2019 with her family and fiance Ben Jones in the Forest of Dean. She described it as "a perfect relaxing weekend" and noted it was her last birthday before her wedding to Ben.
Pictures she posted to Twitter show the couple exploring vast forests and greenery, as well as a cosy-looking hot tub outside a wood cabin in the forest.
Katya and Neil Jones - Russia
In March 2019, the professional dancers stayed with Katya's parents in St Petersburg - but Neil clearly never got used to the snow! He said: "Wow it’s cold here in Russia but I do love a bit of skating."
Aljaz Skorjanec - Slovenia
Aljaz and Janette regularly travel back to Aljaz's native country of Slovenia, most recently to celebrate his niece and goddaughter Zala's Christening.
Oti Mabuse - South Africa
Oti made us green with envy with her photos and videos of her stunning break in South Africa in December 2018. She revealed her failed attempts at getting the perfect swimming video, with her nephew curiously following her around a stunning glass pool overlooking the sea. She jokingly captioned the post: "Trying to be 'sexy' and make a cool 'dream holiday video' BUT MY NEPHEW had other plans." She told fans it was in the Eastern Cape - wherever it is, we'd like our next holiday to be there!
