Sam and Zara have been partaking in photoshoots by the hotel pool, and aside from some smouldering shots of Essex-born Zara’s impressive physique the pair also shared a hilarious set of snaps.

In one shot, posted to the Love Island beauty’s Instagram, Sam is lifting up Zara in the water as they smooch on the lips, and she has captioned the post: “I knew you were the one the day I met you.”

Sam then shared a near identical snap, except this time it was Zara showcasing her strength by holding him up.

He captioned the amusing image: “Don’t know why everyone round the pool was staring so much….it is 2020!” and added laughing face and pair of eyes emojis.

However, the lovers have not just been posing, they have also been enjoying their time in various restaurants. For instance the group headed to upmarket eatery, Nobu Marbella, to dine on some delicious-looking sushi.

We can also spy that they have indulged in Italian food, as Zara posted a stunning snap of herself feasting on a bowl of mouthwatering spaghetti.


However, the holiday hasn’t all been plain sailing, as Zara revealed on Monday that Sam had burnt his legs so bad he had to wear trousers by the swimming pool… uh oh!

Sharing an image of the Celebs Go Dating star lying forlorn on a sun lounger, she wrote: “He bunt his legs so he put my beach trousers on,” followed by a string of laughing face emojis.

The fitness aficionados have also been spending time in the hotel gym, working out to bring balance to their holiday indulgences.


Although the 23 year old X Factor: Celebrity contestant is looking incredible on her trip, she recently came under fire by ‘skinny shamers’ berating her toned physique.

In a lengthy post shared to her Instagram the star hit back, writing: “Earlier on I posted a pic of myself in the mirror. My abs were looking great, I looked strong, I have been working super hard in the gym…

“I feel amazing, and I’m having an amazing holiday. I have been eating pretty healthy, getting my 5 a day every day, just feeling all around great…


"This time last year I was being relentlessly trolled online for being too fat. And if I’m honest, it was a huge catalyst for me taking a look at myself…

"The positive being that I changed my lifestyle for the better and turned it into a positive, when I could easily have felt down and depressed about those comments…

"However I saw some comments saying my body now is too slim. I never thought those kinds of comments could hurt me, but if I’m honest they hurt me more than the fat shaming comments. Why?…
