Big Brother couple Stuart and Michelle have jetted off to a private location to spend some quality time together.
The TV couple are said to be relieved to have some time alone away from the cameras.
Their holiday is thought to have been paid for by OK! magazine as part of the deal for their exclusive story.
"While they were in the house, Stuart and Michelle were always talking about taking a holiday together, so when the magazine asked if they'd like to be whisked off to a secret location for a photo shoot, they could hardly say no," a Channel 4 insider said.
Stu and Michelle were the only housemates to form a lasting union, despite the Geordie lass earning the "bunny boiler" tag from some elements of the tabloid press.
Both contestants made it through to the final fortnight of the hit show, with Stu evicted just two days before the grand final.
