Una and Ben off on first holiday together

POP princess Una Healy "can't wait" to head off on her first holiday with her rugby star boyfriend.

Although The Saturdays beauty and Northampton player Ben Foden (24) have been dating for nearly two years, they have never once had a trip away together due to their busy schedules.

The crooner's hunky beau is on a tour down under, and was due to start for England this morning in their first test against Australia.

But once he finishes there, Ben and Una will be jetting off to Ibiza for a well-earned vacation together.

"I can't wait!" she said. "We've never been on a holiday together, not since we met. There's periods where it does get tough trying to spend quality time together. We just never had the opportunity.

"It does mean that when we see each other, we've got loads to talk about because he's very interested in what I do and I love to follow the rugby and I'm really supportive of him."

Una (28) and Ben met through their agents. They cranked their relationship up a notch earlier this year by moving into their new house near Luton -- but Una has said they're still a long way off marriage.

The Tipperary native was in Spain just a few days ago after going to Marbella with her fellow band members Rochelle Wiseman, Frankie Sandford, Vanessa White and Mollie King.

The Ego stars donned their sexiest outfits as they filmed footage for their new video for their forthcoming single Missing You, due for release on August 8.

The girlband are also putting the finishing touches to their first autobiography, which will dish all the dirt on their rise to fame.
