Kerry Katona shrugged off fears over the coronavirus outbreak as she frolicked on a beach in the Maldives on a romantic getaway with her boyfriend Ryan Mahoney.

The former Atomic Kitten star, 39, jetted to the Indian island nation last week for a sunsoaked holiday with her man.

New pictures show the pair larking about on the beach, sitting on a swing and dipping their toes into the bright blue sea.

Kerry is seen sitting on on Ryan's lap as they had a giggle on the swing, and they are also shown holding hands on a romantic stroll along the beach.

During Kerry's time in the Maldives, four of the country's resorts were put into lockdown as cases of coronavirus were confirmed.

The first cases of the deadly bug there were confirmed on March 7 when two staff members at the Kuredu Island Resort & Spa tested positive.

Guests were put into quarantine and later the entire resort was locked down, with three more hotels later following suit.

Eight cases of Covid-19 have now been confirmed in the Maldives, and officials have set up a resort for the sole use of quarantined tourists.

Reports suggest anyone placed in the resort, on an otherwise uninhabited island, will stay for free during their 14-day isolation stint.

Their meals will be delivered by room service and there's an onsite doctor oncall.

Kerry managed to escape the chaos as she's already jetted back to Britain.

Her daughter Molly shared a video of the star sitting at home watching the telly , writing: "Back at it Kerry Katona."

During the trip, Kerry admitted she thought Ryan was going to propose when he treated her to a luxurious dinner on the beach by candlelight.

In a post on Instagram , she told him: "You better get down on your knee!!

"Such a waste not to in a place like this!!"

She then teased: "I’ve got a few spare rings at home you can use.".

Kerry has been married three times so she will have engagement rings from Bryan McFadden, Mark Croft and George Kay.
