Sunny delight! ... where have some of our best-known faces jetted off to this summer?

Celebrities are sharing their holiday experiences online as they swap the grey skies of Northern Ireland for sunnier climes.

Well-known faces and television personalities have been pictured on the some of world's hottest destinations sunning themselves as temperatures abroad soar.

Apprentice winner Dr Leah Totton has escaped the rain and has been uploading sun-kissed selfies with partner Mark Wright as they bronze themselves in the Dominican Republic.

The cosmetic consultant and her boyfriend, also an Apprentice winner, drank cocktails as they sunbathed on the golden beaches of the tropical Caribbean resort. But after the flight back tempers flared as travellers waited more than three hours to get back through Customs at Heathrow Airport - prompting Mark to complain online.

He tweeted: "A visitor's first stop in the UK shouldn't be this."

Meanwhile, Northern Ireland footballers have been soothing their sore muscles after returning from the Euro 2016 tournament.

Midfielder Stuart Dallas, who married his childhood sweetheart Juneve last month, finally got to go on honeymoon after his return from France.

The newlyweds jetted off to the bright lights of Las Vegas, where they helped a homeless man with a random act of kindness.

Spotting the destitute man they took him into a shop and bought him a load of groceries before stopping for a photo with him, which Juneve uploaded to Twitter.

Juneve said she was saddened by seeing so many homeless people in the US city, before tweeting: "How much he appreciated it, the tears rolling down his face. The world is so cruel." And it seems team-mate and fellow honeymooner Kyle Lafferty has the same idea as he and his model wife Vanessa (23) headed to Bora Bora in the south Pacific Ocean.

Though suffering jet lag, the two were snapped looking toned and tanned with the crystal-clear waters of the Pacific Ocean behind them.

The couple confessed to a minor drama after asking advice on Twitter about how to get rid of a giant cockroach in their room, only to find it had managed to disappear by itself. In one post Vanessa suggested hair-spraying it to make it stick to the floor.

Ireland rugby captain Rory Best also escaped the dreary local weather by flying his family to Cape Town in South Africa where he couldn't resist stopping at an outdoor screening of a rugby match.

He posted a shot of himself with son Ben with the hashtag #likefatherlikeson as the pair sat side by side on the waterfront to watch the game.
