When raunchy pictures of them romping al fresco emerged, no-one expected their affair to last.
But as these pictures show, the romance between former Apprentice contestant Katie Hopkins and her married lover Mark Cross is still going strong.
Frolicking in the surf and kissing passionately, the pair looked the epitome of love's young dream on a break in Barbados.
Wearing a scarlet halterneck bikini models, Hopkins showed off an enviably toned figure as she and Cross, clad in Bermuda shorts, sunned themselves on the Caribbean beach.
And his special attention to her tummy could spark rumours that the mother of two is expecting another addition to her family.
