Joining Vogue on the beach was her husband Spencer, 32, who proudly flaunted the results of his recent fitness transformation as he headed into the sea for a swim with his wife. 

Spencer has been working hard on his physique in recent months after bagging an 11-page spread in the January issue of Men’s Health.

The couple headed to the beach hours after Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced England would be placed in lockdown for the third time, with any non-essential international travel banned.

This may come as a surprise to many reality stars who jetted abroad for the Christmas abroad, with many claiming their breaks were for ‘work reasons.’ 

Vogue – who lives in Battersea, London, with husband Spencer and their two children – certainly looked happy to be away as she lived it up in the French Caribbean, despite rules advising against all but essential travel from the UK. 

At the time of the their flight, travel abroad for leisure was banned under Tier 4 guidelines. Travel exceptions were only allowed for reasons such as work, education and childcare. Travel for leisure is now totally banned in the UK following the third nationwide lockdown.
