KATIE Price is among the British tourists rushing home from Portugal as it was removed from the green list, while Jac Jossa has stayed put.
The 42-year-old former glamour model was holidaying for the second time in the country alongside fiancé Carl Woods, while Jac was joined by husband Dan Osbourne and her daughters on a work trip.
Yesterday, it was announced that Portugal would be taken off the green list after a slight increase in coronavirus infections in the Lisbon area.
Thousands of British holidaymakers have been rushing to the airport before the change is finalised over the weekend to beat the quarantine.
Katie and her family, who were holidaying in the Algarve, were among the tourists who have headed home – while other celebs have decided to stay.
Mum-of-five Katie had been on her second baby-making trip to the country with Carl, 31, as the pair were seen enjoying the sunshine on Instagram.
The couple were among the first Brits to leave the UK after lockdown rules changed last month, staying twice in luxury villas on the gorgeous coastline.
They were joined by Katie's kids Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, for their holiday – but headed to the airport early to get home before rules changed.
Meanwhile, former EastEnders star Jacqueline took husband Dan, 29, and her two daughters Ella, 6, and Mia, 2, for a work break to a luxury villa.
While out there, the star has taken advantage of the hot weather, modelling her latest swimwear collection with In The Style.
The star revealed her toned tummy and long legs as she soaked up the sun on her Portugal getaway, revealing the results of her recent weight loss.
Amanda Holden has also remained in the holiday destination, as she was snapped soaking up the sunshine in a skimpy white bikini.
The 50-year-old took a picture of oldest child Lexi, 15, sitting out in the sunshine as the family holiday together over half term.
Geordie Shore star Holly Hagan is also risking the 10-day isolation period as she similarly continues to relax in the Portuguese sunshine.
She and her fiancé Jacob Blyth celebrated the day they were set to tie the knot while holidaying there, after the pandemic ruined their wedding plans.
The 28-year-old, who was also joined by co-star Charlotte Crosby, was seen dancing with her husband-to-be as they appeared care-free about the upcoming travel restrictions.
All of the stars have 19 hours to return to the UK before Portugal hits the amber list, or else will face a 10-day quarantine period at home.
The new rules mean returning British holidaymakers will have to take PCR tests on days two and eight to prove they are coronavirus free.

Holidaymakers have been facing a scramble trying to get home to the UK as flights to London from the Algarve have shot up to a staggering £711.
Portugal was relegated from its green status on June 3 after ministers sounded the alarm about a worrying new "Nepal mutation" of the Indian variant detected in the holiday hotspot.
Portugal’s foreign and tourism ministers have said it's hard to grasp the logic behind the demotion, describing it as "unfair and completely inadequate".
Portugal's Ministry for Foreign Affairs tweeted: "We take note of the British decision to remove Portugal from its ‘green’ travel list, a decision whose logic is difficult to grasp.
"Portugal continues to carry out its prudent and gradual deconfinement plan, with clear rules for the safety of those who live here or visit us."
