ANNIVERSARY: Kian Egan and Jodi Albert

KIAN Egan and Jodi Albert will jet off this week for a romantic break in Barbados as they mark their five-year anniversary in style.

The Westlife star and his former Hollyoaks’ actress wife will fly off shortly to the sun-kissed holiday resort, along with their son Koa (2).

It’s been five years since the loved-up pair married at a luxury wedding in Barbados on May 8, 2009 and were obviously keen to relive the happy memories.

Kian has had a hectic time since winning I’m a Celebrity…’ last December. The in-demand singer w went on to release new solo single Home’ followed by I’ll Be.’

But this week it’s all about R&R for Kian as he returns to one of his favourite holiday destinations.


He and Jodi got married at a lavish ceremony at an exclusive plantation favoured by Simon Cowell called the Great House on Turtle Beach.

And Kian has revealed the picturesque island will always hold a special place in their heart.

“In 2003, I took Jodi to Barbados. We had only been together for eight weeks. As soon as you arrive in Barbados, you know you’re on holiday as everyone’s friendly and laid-back. It’s a bit like Ireland,” he said.

“I love the beautiful, white sandy beaches, clear blue sea and the tropical fish that swim around your feet. We enjoyed the place so much we decided to have our wedding there.

He said his idea of a perfect day was to go surfing and then “watching the sunset with a cold rum and Coke.”
