IT’S New Year’s Leave – celebs’ annual escape to the sun.
As Big Ben rang in 2022 to drizzle here, the rich and famous celebrated on sun-kissed beaches.
Caribbean paradise St Barts resembled a superyacht parking lot, while the Maldives heaved with telly stars and former footballers as the Indian Ocean lapped at their ankles.
Among them were Myleene Klass and Alex Scott, both showing off their swimwear.
Also joining the exodus of famous faces from our shores was Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden.
She is enjoying a sunny break on the Caribbean island of Antigua.
Offering a glimpse of her family life, Amanda posted on Instagram snaps of her daughter Lexi as they relaxed in a swimming pool.
From those azure shores to exotic locales as far-flung as Mexico and Australia, Amy Jones reveals how the stars saw in the New Year.
We’re not jealous at all . . .
IT was more the merrier in the dreamy Maldives as Myleene Klass, 43, posed in the sea, Towie pals Ferne McCann and Billie Faiers, both 31, made the most of the stunning beaches and TV’s Alex Scott, 37, said on Insta she was “getting my glow back”.
ACTRESS Michelle Keegan and hubby Mark Wright, both 34, were among those who opted for Mexico.
While the Our Girl and Brassic star sunned her admirable pins at sea, presenter Mark took to Instagram to share photos of their matching pina colada cocktails.

AMANDA HOLDEN, 50, and her family are enjoying quality time together in the palm-fringed Caribbean isle of Antigua.
