It was their first Christmas together as a 'proper couple'.

And Michelle Keegan and boyband fiance Max George looked like their Christmas was a real cracker as they flew off on a festive break yesterday.

The 24-year-old actress, who plays Tina McIntyre in Corrie, didn't even seem to mind that her festive Caribbean break was a double date holiday as Max, 23, bought along The Wanted band mate Tom Barker and girlfriend Kelsey Hardwick.

But it isn't all play for The Wanted who are in Barbados for a New Year's Eve concert at the exclusive Sandy Lane Hotel.

The Corrie star had said she couldn't wait to wake up with The Wanted star on Christmas Day at her family home.

'This is actually our first Christmas as a proper couple, so I am really looking forward to it,' she told Now magazine.

'He works away quite a lot, so I don't reallty get a chance to see him, but at Christmas we'll get to spend quite a lot of time together.'

And Michelle, who said she was happy with whatever gift Max got her, looked more in love than ever at Barbados airport.

'I don't mind what I get . It's not about all that for me.

'I just like seeing everyone and I love actually wrapping presents and giving them to people, especially if I've found the right thing.'

But the three times Sexiest Female British Soap Awards winner reveals she is not as body confident as people may think.

Posing for a festive Christmas shoot for new! magazine, Michelle confessed: 'I’m not confident at all, I’m just very laid back. I’ve still got insecurities, which I think every girl’s got.'

Max proposed with a ring and a puppy in June this year, after just six months together, catching Michelle by surprise.

As late as last week, Michelle revealed she still had no idea what she was going to get Max.

She said: 'He's got everything! He hasn't got any hair, so I can't get him hair products.

'He only likes one aftershave so I can't buy him that, and he wears the clothes he gets given at shoots. I'm panicking!'
