He's taking a well-earned break from the spotlight

| Updated:

National treasure Bradley Walsh is currently getting away from it all and enjoying some downtime on his holidays.

And, during his trip to Portugal, he’s been pictured with the most unlikely of pals.

A video of The Chase host playing golf was uploaded to Instagram.

And the uploader was none other than a former professional footballer.

Bradley is currently on holiday in swanky Quinta do Lago, a luxury golf resort on the Algarve.

Who is Bradley Walsh on holiday with?

He was seen out on the fairway last week, playing alongside a host of famous faces – and they seemed to be having a blast.

Sharing a picture to Instagram, former Chelsea captain John Terry cuddled up to Bradley after a morning on the golf course.

“Check who’s joined John Terry in Portugal!!” said one Bradley fan, who appeared to be on holiday in the country.

“Oh my god,” came their tagged pal’s reply, “we have to find him!”

Also playing 18 holes with the famous duo were Dragons’ Den star Peter Jones and former rugby player Max Evans.

“Great morning on the golf course,” Terry captioned the smiling picture.

“If anyone is needing any golf tips check out @bradderswalsh on the second video,” he laughed.

The video shows the TV host dishing out some golf tips.

As Bradley sidled up to the tee, he described in side-splitting detail what he was planning on doing with his shot.

“Only bloke that tries to be funny and actually is,” said one Bradley fan.

Social distancing? With millions of followers between them should be setting a better example!

However, while John’s video stops before Bradley takes his shot, Peter’s shows it in all its glory.

“He’s only done it,” Peter exclaims after Bradley whacks the ball along the fairway between two trees.

What’s happened to social distancing, Brad?

But, while some were impressed with Bradley’s shot and funny man skills, others were concerned that the foursome weren’t social distancing during their golf day.

“Social distancing?” one asked.

“With millions of followers between them should be setting a better example!” the woman continued to rage.

“You’re allowed to meet up with people in outdoor spaces, you mug,” one Bradley fan replied.

“You can clearly see on the video they are more than 2 metres apart so what’s the problem?” asked another.

However, it was the selfie that the original poster took exception to.

“Ermm not in the photo they aren’t,” she countered.

Others agreed.

“Ummmm where is the social distancing???? Not a good example at all,” said one.

Another added: “Leading from the front with COVID. Nice job guys.”

The UK doesn’t currently have an air bridge with Portugal, so when Bradders does return home it’s likely he’ll have to quarantine for 14 days.
