While the UK has been boiling in our own skin in this heatwave, Rachel Riley has been cooling off in the shores of the Maldives in a luxury holiday with her partner, Pasha Kovalev.
The Countdown star, 32, shared a mini-album of photos from the “heavenly” trip, including pics of a selfie in a bikini on the beach, posing on a pier in a pretty dress and dancing while scuba diving with Pasha.
The kind-hearted TV star also revealed that the reason for the holiday was that she won a charity auction for the getaway, after bidding for it at the Tusk event in November.
She gave a shout out to the chefs at the resort and said: “Huge thanks to the incredible chefs @gili.lankanfushi, especially the one and only @hari_govindaraj who is nothing short of a crazy genius in the kitchen making the most incredible vegan food for us every day! Never tried anything like it, you made our holiday Hari.”
Earlier this year, the couple were in hysterics when Rachel Riley was forced to spell out a naughty word on Countdown – suggested by her own boyfriend.
The presenter posted a cheeky picture of the word ‘bumhole’ on the Countdown letters board after Strictly professional Pasha Kovalev took part in Monday’s show.
Pasha sat alongside word-aficionado Susie Dent in Dictionary Corner on the daytime version of he show, hosted by former The Apprentice judge Nick Hewer.
Rachel tweeted the shot of the word, which she said was "off the edit room floor" and therefore didn’t make it into the final show.
She also made a naughty joke about the word, tweeting: "One day I’ll grow up enough not to laugh at this, but for now, it’s orofficially funny."
The Oxford graduate also shared a video of Pasha making the suggestion to Nick, with the accompanying caption: "Can’t take @PashaKovalev anywhere.
"This was supposed to be the clean version of the show!"
