Model Nicola Hughes has swapped the Chelsea high-life for a romantic break away in the sun with boyfriend Alex Mytton.

The Dubliner and her Made in Chelsea co-star jetted off to sunny Spain over the weekend, where they partied with friends at the Hilton Hotel in Barcelona.

The reality stars were all smiles as they shared snaps of their poolside antics on Instagram, with Assets girl Nicola showing off her slim figure in a mismatched black and pink bikini.

The Sandyford native admitted to the Diary that she keeps a closer eye on her weight since leaving Dublin for the Chelsea social scene.

"Since I've been there I'm very conscious of my weight because you're constantly drinking and eating out - you have to be careful," she said.

"I go up and down sometimes - everyone loses the run of themselves and eats loads of crap and then you kind of focus again.

"I eat healthily but I don't really exercise - I'm quite lazy, but I try my best to eat well," she added.

Nicola, who also stars in RTE show Exiles, moved to London after falling for the DJ last August.

"Everything is just 'go, go, go' in comparison to Ireland," she added.
