The stunning sisters are the spitting image of each other

The Cuban beauty and her Slovenian husband have both been missing their family who live overseas. Admitting they have found the lockdown restrictions extremely hard, husband Aljaz shared with HELLO! that he is "frustrated" with the limits on international travel that have prevented them from seeing their loved ones.

He noted how it was "especially hard for those with families that are not from the UK".

Over the past week, the pro dancer has been documenting her sun-soaked trip with her fans, which kicked off with a tour of the popular Savoy Palace hotel. She has also visited hotspots around Madeira and Sé Boutique Hotel as well as Pestana Porto Santo resort.
