Tess stunned fans with her striking polka dot dress

"We made it to the sunshine," shared Tess. "Here with my bestie @Gayle_x_ to shoot the new season collection of our swimwear range @Naia_Beach! But first, time to soak up some of that much needed sunshine at @RixosThePalmDubai."

Fans were quick to comment on the star's glowing photos, rushing to share their love for her polka dot ensemble. 

"Enjoy the well earned rest. You worked hard on Strictly. Missing it still," wrote one fan, while a second quipped: "Both looking beautiful and glowing!"

"Love your dress, where's it from please?" asked a third, to which Tess replied: "Thank you! It’s actually a super old Topshop one! But it’s a favourite and I wear it year after year! It’ll probably be threadbare soon."

Dubai isn't the star's first holiday this year, as Tess and husband Vernon recently enjoyed a few days in Dorset with their daughters, Phoebe, 17, and Amber, 12.

They hit the sandy beach of the coastal county, with the TV star uploading photos. She remarked: "A little family trip to the beach was the perfect start to 2022, although the wind had other ideas about my hair."
