The WAG and the Derby County captain, both 34, were seen leaving the airport with their four sons after the hot spot was announced as one of the countries which are exempt from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advice against all non-essential international travel amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The family proved safety comes first as they sported protective face masks in the terminal following their long flight from the UK. 

Coleen and Wayne lugged their suitcases to their awaiting cabs as Kai, 10, Klay, seven, Kit, four, and Cass, two, were accompanied by her parents Colette and Tony McLoughlin.

The former magazine columnist cut a casual figure in a white T-shirt by Chloe, which she teamed with denim shorts and sandals.

While her tresses were worn in a ponytail, she opted for minimal make-up as she prepared to soak up the sun on the sandy shores of the Caribbean.

COVID-19 TRAVEL RULES TO BARBADOS FOR BRITS 

While the coronavirus crisis threw travel plans into chaos in recent months, celebrities have started to visit their favourite destinations after travel restrictions for Brits eased.

Earlier this month, the FCO announced exemptions for visiting certain countries and territories, including Barbados, that no longer pose a high risk amid the global pandemic.   

The Government of Barbados advises that travellers present a COVID-19 negative test result on arrival that meets their entry requirements whenever possible.

Without the result, they are subjected to a mandatory examination, which can take a maximum of 48 hours.

Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 on the island will be placed in isolation until they have fully recovered.  

Earlier this month, Prime Minister the Hon. Mia Amor Mottley, announced there were no more active cases of COVID-19. As of Sunday, there have been two confirmed cases. 

British Airways are currently flying to Barbados, while Virgin Atlantic are only flying to New York, Los Angeles and Hong Kong.

While the coronavirus crisis threw travel plans into chaos in recent months, celebrities have started to visit their favourite destinations after travel restrictions for Brits eased.

Earlier this month, the FCO announced exemptions for visiting certain countries and territories, including Barbados, that no longer pose a high risk amid the global pandemic.    

Friends say the former England football captain has hoped Coleen’s WAG war would not get to his stage but he is willing to back his wife in her quest to prove her claims and be vindicated. 

A source said to The Sun: ‘Wayne thinks it’s gone too far already and dreads the thought of it reaching court. 

‘He fears it could be embarrassing to him and their family what may come out. But he knows how important this is to Coleen and will back her.’

Another source said: ‘Coleen is becoming obsessed with it.’ 

MailOnline has contacted Coleen and Wayne Rooney’s representatives for comment at the time of publication.

The holiday was no doubt needed for Coleen, who was accused of leaking stories to the press by Rebekah earlier this month.  

Rebekah – who is the wife of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, 33 – told in a bombshell legal document how she had been left suicidal by the accusation that she had leaked stories about Coleen and her family. 

She also claims in the document drawn up for her libel battle against Coleen that the stress of the scandal had left her fearful of losing her unborn baby and suffering panic attacks that made her too scared to leave her home.

The I’m A Celeb star complains of being made a ‘scapegoat’ by her rival seeking to blame her for stories appearing when in the past Coleen had approved of her friends leaking gossip about her.

The document says Rebekah believes she ‘has deliberately been made a scapegoat (sic) by the Defendant (Coleen) for past ‘leaked’ stories.’

It points to previous stories about Coleen and Wayne with some ‘in particular about their marriage, which have in fact come from the Defendant’s friends, at times even with the Defendant’s approval.’

The paper states that Sun journalist Dan Wootton had said on talkRADIO on October 19 last year that Coleen had ‘manipulated the media to tell stories about her own life’.

Devastating: Rebekah told in a bombshell legal document how she had been left suicidal by the accusation that she had leaked stories about Coleen and her family 

Wootton added that he had ‘written many, many stories’ about her marriage and ‘lots of other things around the Rooneys’ that had come directly from friends of Coleen including some told ‘with her (Coleen’s) approval’, says the document

He went on to say on talkRADIO that nothing had ever come from ‘any of the Vardys’, it adds.

Rebekah describes in her document how Coleen’s public denunciation of her on Instagram while she was seven months pregnant had ‘gravely injured her reputation’.

Detailing how Coleen had ’caused her enormous distress and very extreme embarrassment’, she disclosed how she had been bombarded with abuse on social media. 

Rebekah said that the widespread damage to her reputation was illustrated by research showing her name had become a more popular search term than ‘Brexit’ on Google in the UK on the day the scandal broke.  

She also claimed that it led to her name appearing 276,822 times on Twitter on the same day, more than triple the number of mentions of Boris Johnson who had had his name published only 80,704 times.

The full statement: Coleen made these shock claims on Instagram after discovering she had been betrayed by someone close to her and she concluded that it was Vardy’s account

‘I don’t need the money’: Rebekah denied all accusations against her minutes after the post and said she had nothing to gain and had no financial motivation

Coleen made headlines around the world last October when she made her devastating claim that Rebekah had been leaking stories about her and her family to the Sun newspaper.

She released the statement: ‘It’s been tough keeping it to myself and not making any comment at all, especially when the stories have been leaked, however I had to. Now I know for certain which account / individual it’s come from.

‘I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them. It’s ……………. Rebekah Vardy’s account.’

Rebekah immediately denied the claims and has since been fighting to clear her name and demands Coleen withdraw the claims against her.
