Their trip comes after the Foreign and Commonwealth Office told all Brits to avoid all 'non-essential travel abroad' until at least April 15, 2020.

It is not known where they were travelling to or whether it was 'essential'. Entertainment Daily has contacted Nicole and Thom's reps.

Avoid non-essential travel

Last week, Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordered all Brits to stay home in an effort to beat the deadly coronavirus pandemic.

Boris has also ordered the closure of all non-essential shops and told people they must only visit supermarkets when absolutely necessary.

People are entitled to one trip outside for exercise a day and all social gatherings have also been banned.

If the rules are flouted, Boris has warned the nation that they face receiving fines or will even be arrested by the police.

Boris said: "You should not be meeting friends. If your friends ask you to meet, you should say 'No.'

"You should not be meeting family members who do not live in your home.
