Brits have been delighting in the lockdown lightening, with many jetting off to Portugal, given its place on the green list.
And leading the way was Rod Stewart is staying at the luxury Villa Vita park resort in Portugal’s Algarve with wife Penny Lancaster on a romantic break.
The music icon, 76, and his model wife, 50, chartered a private jet to head to the exclusive resort, where they documented their travels on Instagram.
Penny Lancaster and her husband Rod Stewart stepped out for a double date with pals Ronnie Wood and wife Sally Humphreys after lockdown restrictions were eased this week.
The model, 50, looked typically glamorous in a flowery dress and black leather jacket as she joined husband Rod, 76, for dinner at the The Arts Club in London‘s Mayfair.
Meanwhile Sally, 43, caught the eye in a green jacket as she held hands with her love Ronnie, 73, leaving the swanky eatery.
The group looked like they had had a great time as indoor dining returned as they beamed while heading home from the restaurant.
Penny completed her going-out look with shiny black heels and wore her blonde tresses in loose waves over her shoulders while opting for a natural makeup look.
Meanwhile Rod looked dapper in a long black coat, white shirt and black loafers with a skull and cross bone design.

Sally teamed her green jacket with black jeans and a black top while adding a pop of colour to her ensemble with a a slick of bright red lip.
Ronnie opted for a more casual look wearing a hoodie under his black suit along with dark jeans and shoes.
The group took to their Instagram earlier in the week to share with fans snaps from their reunion as Ronnie and Rod and Sally and Penny hugged outside the restaurant.

Ronnie and Sally Wood’s night out with Rod and Penny comes after Sally candidly detailed her husband’s secret cancer battle, saying the couple ‘tried to keep as positive as possible’.
The actress also praised the Rolling Stones guitarist in a new interview with Hello! magazine, saying he has ‘incredible strength and determination’.
It was revealed last month that Ronnie, had been given the all-clear after being diagnosed with small cell cancer in lockdown. He also battled lung cancer in 2017.
Nine-year-old Mairead Shaw painted an incredible artwork of the star and wife Penny Lancaster, inspired by a charity fundraiser
An incredible young artist received a surprise gift and high praise from a huge star after impressing with her stellar talents.
Nine-year-old Mairead Shaw painted an extraordinary portrait of Sir Rod Stewart and his wife Penny Lancaster, inspired by the musician offering the unique top prize of a Ritz dinner with the couple in a fundraising auction run by Maggie’s Lanarkshire.
She handed in the painting to staff at the cancer caring centre in Airdrie – along with a kind donation of her pocket money to help with their work in supporting patients and their loved ones.
They in turn were able to send the artwork, depicting the couple on their Paris
honeymoon, to Sir Rod and Penny; and Mairead recently received a special surprise when
she was invited along to the Airdrie centre when it welcomed back visitors as the latest
coronavirus restrictions eased.
Proud mum Karen told Lanarkshire Live how Mairead had begun painting commissions suggested by relatives during lockdown, saying: “She did one of a scene in Montmartre for her uncle and we were blown away by it.
“Her dad, Gary, had seen that Sir Rod and Penny were offering a prize in the Maggie’s auction; they’d been on their honeymoon in Paris so Mairead chose to do a scene showing them at the Eiffel Tower.
“She was very chuffed that Sir Rod got her painting, but she didn’t know until we went to Maggie’s recently that he’d sent something in for her, and when she opened it she was so surprised and absolutely delighted.
“He’d sent two signed photos and written her a wee message, and also said she should use the gift to buy more paints and art materials.”
Mairead, a pupil at St Barbara’s Primary, shared her success at school and is continuing to develop her artistic skills.
Rod Stewart could not stop smiling as he finally got to embrace his good pal Ronnie Wood on Monday night after lockdown restrictions eased.
Hugs had been a no-go throughout the pandemic, with friends and family members living in different households having to miss out on physical contact for a year.
And the two rockers wasted no time in wrapping their arms around each other while at The Arts Club in London with their glamorous wives Penny, 50, and Sally, 43.
The rocker was seen in head to toe Hoops colours as the 76-year-old hooked a net onto a set of goalposts ahead of a kids football match.
Rod Stewart dressed head to toe in the colours of his beloved Celtic to help set up goals for an under 10s football match.
The 76-year-old rocked a green and white tracksuit just hours after the team's fierce Glasgow rival Rangers lifted the Premiership title for the first time in a decade yesterday.
The singer delights in making his love for the Parkhead club well known - with a countless number of social media posts dedicated to his team.
In the Instagram post from this morning, Rod was pictured hooking a net around a set of goalposts for an under 10s ‘Hoops match’.
He can be seen wearing a hoody with the club crest and name emblazoned across the middle - topped off with pair of emerald green trainers.
Captioning the post, he wrote: “You can beat an egg, you can beat a carpet, but you can’t beat putting up the nets on a Sunday morning for the under 10s Hoops match.”
FIRST CUT IS... NO DIFFERENT
ROD Stewart has had a same-hair day despite spending four hours in the salon.
The First Cut Is The Deepest singer's interest in his hair seems to have spiked after he left the mammoth salon session looking pretty much the same as when he went in.
He was seen leaving a Mayfair hair parlour after four hours getting his hair coiffured.
The singer-songwriter looked like a peacock as he made his way back to his £300,000 brand new Rolls Royce.
Rod was seen for the first time without his leg brace following a foot injury from years of playing football.
Rod Stewart demonstrated his domestic side over the weekend as he shared a snap of himself doing the ironing - out on the pavement.
The 76-year-old star took to Instagram during the dead of night on Saturday to share the image of himself stood beside an ironing board outside.
In his latest picture, the musician stood on the side of the road wearing a white shirt, a tweed waistcoat and a blue, green and yellow striped tie.
His outfit was finished off with a pair of khaki trousers and brown leather shoes.
The star stood behind an ironing board working away on a brown shirt - though the iron wasn't plugged in anywhere, with the end of the cable visibly swinging around beneath the board.
