Their co-stars Binky Felstead, Jess Woodley and Josh Patterson may have headed to LA, but Alex and Nicola decided to soak up the sun elsewhere, jetting into the Spanish city over the weekend instead.
Since their arrival, the couple have been sharing plenty of holiday snaps with fans and it's fair to say they both seem pretty smitten - despite their recent drama on MIC.
Taking to Instagram earlier today, Alex shared a photo of himself and his girlfriend topping up their tans by the beach. While he can be seen posing up a storm shirtless, Irish beauty Nicola proved she looks just as glam for a sunbathing session, rocking a coral bikini and plenty of eyeliner.
His photo comes after the pair hit headlines following a selfie Nicola tweeted and deleted with Alex posing naked in the background. Rather than let the photo mishap ruin their getaway, the pair shrugged off the frenzy it had caused and were all smiles as they headed out for an afternoon of sight seeing.
Alex even joked on Twitter: "Remind me not to go to Barca with my chick and her phone."
The pair's mini-holiday in Barcelona comes after viewers watched the pair clash recently on Made In Chelsea.
Jamie Laing had let slip to Nicola that newcomer Jess Woodley (a former flame of Alex's) had said she had unfinished business with the Chelsea boy.
Upset with Jess' comments, Nicola confided in unlikely pal Binky Felstead for advice, before confronting her co-star, telling Jess she had been disrespectful.
When Alex chose to defend Jess and not Nicola, his girlfriend was far from impressed. Hoping to make things right, he then told Jess they couldn't be friends anymore as he had to put Nicola and her feelings first.
Alex and Nicola first began dating last year after meeting in Dublin. Since then, the pair's romance has continued to grow, with Alex declaring his love for Nicola onscreen.
He told her: "Are you using Ireland as a whole distance makes the heart grow fonder thing? Because it's working... I'm in love with you."
