Almancil is in the affluent golden triangle region outside of Faro, the capital of the Algarve. 

It is famous for its luxury resorts and Michelin star restaurants, and lies between the town of Vilamoura, Almancil and the gated communities of Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo.

However, Jess continued to share updates from Portugal that evening – although she did not specify if she was still in the country or posting throwback snaps.  

Amber rules mean travellers arriving home from Portugal will now have to self-isolate for 10 days and pay for two PCR tests to take on day 2 and day 8.

Breaking quarantine could lead to a £10,000 fine with those who do not take tests on day 2 and day 8 of their self-isolation facing £2,000 penalties.

Natalya captioned the image: ‘Ready for the pool. I wish I could tell you where to buy this outfit but I can’t just yet.. coming soon.’

Forever: Natalya has flown on holiday with her boyfriend Tommy and they posed for a picture in the beautiful sunlight of golden hour by the beach

The model has been enjoying her time in the sun and on Monday she shared a picture of herself and boyfriend Tommy at Maria’s Beach & Restaurant in Almancil.  

Natalya has certainly been making the most of the post lockdown freedom by dining out while away.

She captioned the image of her and Tommy: ‘Forever,’ while she kissed him on the cheek. 

Natalya did not specify if she was still in the country or posting throwback snaps, after Portugal moved onto the government’s amber list as of 4am on Tuesday. 

 

What tests do you need when returning from foreign countries? 

GREEN LIST

You will be required to take a lateral flow test within 72 hours of your return flight to England, followed by a PCR test on or before the second day of your return. You will not be required to self-isolate during this time.

The cost of a PCR test can be up to £125 each in Britain, while a lateral flow test taken abroad at Faro Airport, for example, is about €30 (£25).

When arriving in the foreign country, you may also need to need provide proof of a negative PCR taken within 72 hours of your outbound flight, or proof of vaccination, depending on the destination’s requirements.

AMBER LIST

You will be required either to quarantine at home for ten days on your return and take a PCR test on days two and eight, as well as a lateral flow test before the return flight.

Or you can pay for an additional third ‘Test to Release’ on day five to end self-isolation early. You will still need to take the compulsory second test on or after day eight.

British families of four in Portugal now face having to pay £1,500 to buy three sets of PCR tests at £125 each, if they go under the ‘Test to Release’ scheme.

Adding this to the cost of a lateral flow test, which can be bought at Faro Airport for €30 (£25), the total cost for a family of four would be about £1,600.

RED LIST

If you travel to a red list country, or are in an amber country that turns red before you return, you would need to quarantine at a government-approved hotel on your return at a cost of £1,750.

Before you travel to England, you must take a PCR or lateral flow test and get a negative result during the three days before you travel.

You should also book a quarantine hotel package – including two further tests for when you are in the hotel – and complete a passenger locator form.

Brosnahan spoke about her real-life connection to her character during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, where she noted that Maisel’s feelings about various things had begun to affect her own.

‘I think I tap into Midge when I get nervous! I can hear myself starting to fall into some rhythms and cadences and trying to will her confidence into my own life, and she’s kind of become like a weird alter ego,’ she expressed.

The award-winning actress also spoke about the audience’s perception of Maisel as a parent and expressed that the show’s writers fully intended for the character to run into complications with her children.

‘It seems to make people uncomfortable, or they feel like it’s a plot hole rather than something that was very carefully thought out,’ she remarked.

Lulu has revealed she had coronavirus in January and says six months on the impact on her health is ‘lingering’. 

The singing icon, 72, said she ‘had it for a few weeks’ but that even now she has noticed she still feels ‘tired’.

Speaking on Wednesday’s Good Morning Britain with Richard Madeley and Susanna Reid, the star said said she felt lucky she didn’t have to go to hospital with it. 

Worry: Lulu has revealed she had coronavirus in January and says six months on the impact on her health is ‘lingering’

She said: ‘I actually got it in January, I was really lucky because I didn’t have to go to hospital, but I’ve noticed that I am still tired and have this little cough sometimes… it’s lingering.

‘I don’t know if I could say it’s long covid but it is lingering.’

She continued: ‘I think I was lucky that I wasn’t laid out for 3 or 4 or 5 months, I had it for a few weeks, I didn’t have to go to hospital.

Difficult: Speaking on Wednesday’s Good Morning Britain with Richard Madeley and Susanna Reid, the star said said she felt lucky she didn’t have to go to hospital with it

‘I’ve had two vaccinations, I’ve got antibodies up the wazoo!’

During the TV interview, Richard, 65, complimented her on her youthful looks and asked what her secret was.

The beauty responded: ‘I wake up looking like this every morning, ha-ha! 

‘I got up at the crack of dawn, I put on make-up and couldn’t be bothered to do my hair so I decided to keep this hat on.’

She also discussed going on tour after lockdown, saying: ‘I don’t think I’ve never not worked for so long so I have some really exciting shows coming up.’

Star: The songstress is famous for her incredibly successful singing career (pictured in 1970)

The songstress is famous for her incredibly successful singing career and her brief fling with David Bowie.

In 2019 she revealed she was in love with him in the seventies.

Speaking Lorraine, the star opened up about her liaison with the late Heroes hitmaker, who died in 2016, saying the pair shared a ‘unique relationship’.  

She said: ‘I had a little bit of a thing about him I would say. And it was reciprocal.’  

She added they had ‘snogged’ and when asked by Ross King if she had been in love with the Starman singer, she revealed: ‘Maybe for a minute, yeah.’ 

The Shout hitmaker has previously discussed her romance with Bowie in her autobiography, I Don’t Want To Fight and in a 2017 interview with Weekend Magazine.

The pair collaborated on 1974 track, The Man Who Sold The World. David invited her to record with him at his chateau-based studio in France, with the pair ending up in bed together, even though he famously told her she could do with losing weight. 

‘He wasn’t suggesting I should lose weight because he fancied me more that way,’ she pointed out in her book. ‘It was more a professional observation. He was one of the pioneers of the emaciated, heroin-chic look and he thought it would help my career. It was typical of David.’

The singer has been married twice, first to Bee Gee Maurice Gibb in 1969 and then to hairdresser John Frieda, who is the father of her son Jordan, 43.
