Alex Scott, 35, took to social media this afternoon to give her fans an update following a short break, which gave her the opportunity to “switch off” and “recharge”.
The Strictly Come Dancing contestant headed to her “happy place” following a busy few months which saw her taking part in the BBC ballroom dancing competition and the subsequent Live! tour.
The former Arsenal striker, who was teamed with professional dancer Neil Jones, 37, on the popular show, spent 11 weeks in the competition and came fifth overall.
She then embarked on a gruelling 33-date tour of the UK.
In need of some time away, Alex headed to a retreat in Lisbon, Portugal for a holiday featuring sun-soaked hikes and bike rides.
The sports pundit posted a series of pictures on her Instagram account today, in view of her 351,000 followers, revealing what she had been up to.
Alongside pictures of the star, which included one with Jason Vale, 50, also known as The Juice Master, she wrote: “I can’t thank you enough @jasonvale once again you offered me some time away to switch off, get some goodness in my body and recharge.”
The TV star continued: “Your beautiful @juicemasterretreats is always my happy place.”
Alex also uploaded images of herself walking in the beautiful Portuguese landscape and with fellow guests at the retreat.
She wrote: “The hikes, bike rides, fitness the juicing and meeting amazing people, it’s truly a special place. I will be back soon. Thank you!! x x.”
