It has been an eventful year in the life of our new Prime Minister Boris Johnson, culminating in the busy period of a pre-Christmas national election. Late nights, long days and constituency campaigns have taken their toll - as evidenced in recent press photographs of MrJohnson. So where does an exhausted Prime Minister choose to spend some post-Christmas downtime? In an exclusive Island enclave in the luxurious Caribbean, of course.

Johnson (55) and his significant other, Carrie Symonds (31) jetted off to a £20k-a-week Island villa in Mustiquein order to get some much-needed R&R. They arrived in the Caribbean on Boxing Day, landing in St Lucia.The island get-a-away guarantees seclusion, privacy and solitude - a blessing for Mr Johnson, who has had a hectic year.  Johnson and Ms Symonds, who spent their first Christmas together in No. 10 Downing Street, took Economy British Airways flights to the Caribbean - sparing the purse of the British taxpayer at least £50,000.

In a photograph taken by a fellow passenger, the PM can be seen at a window seat enjoying a book whilstMs Symonds settles down for some shut-eye. The pair appeared to be seated comfortably in Economy towards the back of the plane, where passengers can often feel more turbulence than those at the front.

The accommodation, at the ultra-luxurious Oceanus villa in Mustique, is believed to be a gift. The ritzy destination is a favourite with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and is also home to music legends Mick Jagger and Bryan Adams, and fashion icon Tommy Hilfiger. As well as having the sea just a stone's throw away, Johnson and Ms Symonds can also take a dip in their own private pool. Ms Symonds earlier this month proved herself a cost-efficient woman after it was revealed she hired her designer outfits, rather than buying them outright. In-keeping with her green credentials, as her day job is an adviser to environmental campaign group Oceana.
