Geordie Shore's Sophie Kasaei slips into a hot pink bikini as she packs on the PDA with shirtless beau Joel Corry in Barcelona

She may well be enjoying a permanent return to popular reality show Geordie Shore, but Sophie Kasaei was significantly further afield on Sunday afternoon as her winter break continued in earnest.

The buxom reality star, 26, has swapped her native Newcastle for the rather more glamorous Barcelona, and she wasted no time in soaking up the sun after hitting the beach with boyfriend Joel Corry.

Opting for a vibrant hot pink bikini, Sophie showed off her figure as the couple strolled hand in hand close to the shoreline.

Hand in hand: Geordie Shore star Sophie Kasaei enjoyed a romantic stroll across Barcelona beach with boyfriend Joel Corry on Sunday afternoon

Evidently smitten, the pair enjoyed a very public display of affection as DJ and fitness instructor Joel lifted the TV personality off her feet. 

Wrapping her legs around his thighs, Sophie leaned in for a kiss from the muscular hunk as he pulled her close.

The pair have been documenting their stay across social media ever since Joel swept her off for a romantic trip the Catalan capital on Saturday.

Taking to Istagram shortly after arriving Sophie shared a snap as they prepared to let their hair down, with the accompanying caption: 'Them Barcelona nights.'

Sophie has been dating Joel for five years and admits her boyfriend's gym-based career makes her feel insecure - although she has vowed to never be trained by her beau.

Her body confidence took a further blow after Geordie Shore co-stars Holly Hagan, Charlotte Crosby and Vicky Pattison drastically slimmed down. 

Good times: The pair have been documenting their stay in Barcelona across social media 

She told MailOnline: 'I'm always gonna battle with my weight. It's always been up and down. The other girls have DVDs and have books and I've never done that or be offered anything, I've never had help. 

'Being back on the show I've started worrying about it and I'm like: "S**t, I've let myself go". Its hard and I don't know what to do. I'll never be that skinny girl but I just want to be healthy. 

'I compare myself to the other girls. It's hard for me because I wasn't as popular as the other girls so I look up to them. They're working out, they've got trainers, they've got this, they've got that. I think because they do it I should.' 

Welcome back: Sophie is now a permanent cast-member on the current series of returning reality TV show Geordie Shore
