Tess may have left her dramatic makeup and sparkling wardrobe on the set of Strictly, but we're seriously loving her radiant new year look. 

Fans were quick to comment on Tess' gorgeous glow, including former Strictly Come Dancing winner Stacey Dooley, who commented: "You look beautiful".

"Lovely photo. So natural", wrote a second fan, while a third penned: "Stunning, so natural! Happy New Year to you and your gang, Dorset Jurassic coast is beautiful."

Tess and Vernon cosied up on the beach together

Tess' sweet family post may come as a surprise to fans who rarely see the family of four together, given Tess and Vernon's extremely busy working schedules. Despite their hectic lifestyles, the couple never fail to thrill fans with their romantic couple posts and heartwarming tributes to each other on social media. 

Tess and Vernon have been married for nearly two decades, tying the knot in 2003 and later renewing their vows in France six years ago. 

When Vernon appeared on I'm A Celebrity in 2020, the Family Fortunes star told his fellow Castle-dwellers about how he secretly masterminded their vow renewal ceremony.
