Another erstwhile competitor, Judy Murray, gushed on the micro-blogging site: ‘Ah Zoe. What gorgeous news. Lots of love to the 3+1 of you. Xxx.’

However, their engagement ended after Brendan was partnered with Natasha Kaplinsky on the inaugural season of Strictly – which they won.

They later went public with their relationship, and after it ended, Brendan was rumoured to be dating a number of women, including Abi Titmuss, Lady Victoria Hervey, Martine McCutcheon, Adele Silva and Emma Gray.

Iberostar Grand Hotel Portals Nous, Mallorca, Spain – wallpaper.com

As much of continental Europe roasts in an unaccustomed heat-wave, it’s timely that the Iberostar group launches a new property, this time on sun-kissed Mallorca. A brisk 11km drive from Palma with convenient access to the nearby Puerto Portals marina, the 66-room hotel is the work of Marcel Wanders.

Given what looks like carte blanche, the Dutch designer has swathed the hotel with what he airily describes as ‘symbols and constant allusions to life’. This translates to all-white bedrooms lined with futuristic moulded wall panels, a forest of white arches, bulbous tree-like installations in public spaces, rugs of radiating shades of warm oranges, and eye-catching pool lined with enormous white mosaic flowers.

And just to prove that one can never have too much fun, even in a self-styled adults-only hotel, the themed suites – Naughty, Stargazer, Spa, Heritage,  and Games – deliver on their monikers. The Games Suite, in particular featuring a pinball machine, video games, putting green, and, this being soccer-mad Spain, table football.

More sybaritic activities include a 650 sq m spa that incorporates sauna, biosauna, Turkish bath and six different types of showers; and a menu anchored by ribeyes and sirloin from León-based El Capricho alongside cod and turbot and elderflower cannelloni – all best paired, we think, with views of the Mediterranean from the outdoor terrace.

Tour highlights

  • Andy Sturgeon talks

Few designers make better company for a horticultural adventure than Andy Sturgeon. Having hunted plants in destinations such as Kenya and Madagascar, Andy will have plenty of stories and secrets to share with you. He will also provide expert insight into the minutiae of garden design as you visit such renowned formal gardens as Sa Torre Cega.

  • Birds and botany

A magnet for botanists and bird-watchers, Albufera Nature Reserve is the largest and most important wetland in the Balearics. This tranquil lagoon offers 4,000 acres of rich marshland, a home for native trees and reeds, rare fungi and almost 300 species of birds. Spend an afternoon here away from the more manicured sights on the island.

  • Outstanding gardens

The conservation of Mallorca’s fantastic horticultural heritage has been high on the agenda since the 19th century. Its pockets of Mediterranean wilderness contrast beautifully with the more cultivated gardens to which this trip will take you, such as the romantic faux ruins of Raixa, the Gothic-style Jardínes de Alfabia and the floral elegance of Museo Sa Bassa Blanca.

  • Grand architecture

Mallorca boasts a large number of handsome historic buildings – the Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance architecture is wonderful to behold, with lavish mansions nestled into the dramatic landscape. You’ll see some of these magnificent buildings on the tour and also visit the majestic monastery of Real Cartuja de Valldemossa.

  • Four-star comfort

Your base for this five-night stay will be Sóller, a traditional Mallorcan town set just a few minutes’ drive away from the turquoise sea. You can depend on the top-class hospitality of a four-star hotel. And with most destinations on this tour just a short drive away by coach, you can be sure to maximise your time outdoors.

Steep steps and tall tales: a local’s walking tour of Pollença, Mallorca – The Guardian

There’s nothing quite like exploring a new place with a local – and on a Thursday in Pollença, a town in the north of Mallorca, it’s possible to do just that – for free.

Run by the tourist information office, the three-hour guided walking tour of the old town starts at 10am at the 17th-century Convent de Sant Domingo and takes in eight key sites.

What’s more, free entry into many attractions, including the Pollença museum, housed in a beautiful old convent and crammed with important works of art, is included, too. The Joan March gardens, with a medieval tower, the 13th-century Our Lady of the Angels church and the Plaça de l’Almoina, named for its 18th-century alms house, are among other stops.

There are stories of scandals and crimes, plus plenty of facts about Pollença past and present. The highlight of the tour has to be the 365 Calvari Steps. The guide stops to point out interesting buildings as the group climbs higher, discreetly letting people catch their breath. The view from the top over the pretty old centre and to the coast beyond is spectacular.
