His team Liverpool are flying in the Premier League - OK, they're second in the table.

But I bet Ian Rush must feel he's No.1 every time he basks in the erotic glow of his beautiful Irish girlfriend - shapely brunette from Cork, Carol Anthony.

In fact, Ian must bask pretty often in Carol's gorgeous glow because they live together, with pads in Cheshire, London and The Algarve.

The dashing duo (who have been romantically entwined since early 2013) are clearly hot to trot. And the emphasis is on the hot.

They are spending Christmas in that most wonderful of islands in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius.

"We will be there until new year...really looking forward to it as Ian and I work extremely hard and most trips are business trips," she said, referring to Ian's work as an international global ambassador for Liverpool and her own charity work for slum kids in India. "So this trip will be just for us!! I can't wait!"

Will Rushie be popping a question in Mauritius? "I hope not! Ha!" Carol laughed. "But I do think it's something we might talk about next year."

Engagement or not in Mauritius, Ian and Carol will be jetting back to spend a few days with Carol's parents in Cork on December 19.

Maybe after a bit of craic in the Second City over the Yuletide, the former Liverpool FC deity will feel sufficiently loved-up to propose to Cazza on the spot?
