Holidays Inspired by the Famous

The stars of the small screen are out braving themselves for the January chill as they attend the National Television Awards, don’t pity them too much as they freeze on the red carpet – these famous faces love a good holiday, usually somewhere hot and sunny!

Let’s take a peek at the holiday snaps of our favourite TV stars and see where they like to jet off to when they need a break. Book the same place and you might even bump into them while you’re there!

Simon Cowell


Barbados definitely has the X Factor for talent show TV mogul Simon Cowell – he holidays there year after year (usually several times!).

Mel B


It’s another big fat yes for Mexico from feisty X Factor judge Mel B who hit the beach with husband Stephen in 2014. She loved it so much that she chose the Riviera Maya as the location for her Judges House, bringing fellow former Spice Girl and Dancing on Ice judge Emma Bunton along for the jolly!
