Nicola Mclean’s husband, footballer Tom Williams arranged a surprise spa day for his wife at the luxurious urban KuBu Spa in Henley-On-Thames, Oxfordshire.

 Nicola Mclean at KuBu Spa

This year has been a very hectic one so far for model and TV personality, Nicola Mclean. On January 3rd Nicola entered this year’s Big Brother house with 12 other celebrity housemates, including Hollywood actor Michael Madsen, The Only Way is Essex Star Kirk Norcross, and X-Factor finalist Frankie Coccozza. Nicola spent 22 out of the total 24 days in the house and was evicted just 2 days before the final. On 27th Jan, Loose Women presenter, Denise Welsh was the last house mate remaining and crowned Celebrity Big Brother winner 2012.

Nicola admits it was a very stressful environment living in the Big Brother house with 11 new people, and the hardest challenge was spending time apart from her two young boys and husband Tom.

Since leaving the house it has been a whirlwind for Nicola of press interviews, TV appearances and events, so her loving husband Tom arranged a romantic spa day together at the leading urban day spa, KuBu Spa in Henley-on-Thames, not far from their home in South Buckinghamshire.

Tom explains, “A friend highly recommended KuBu Spa and I thought a spa day would be the perfect treat to surprise Nicola. After such a busy period it was important to take a bit of time out to relax and spend some quality time together. We both really enjoy going to spas and I couldn’t wait to visit

Whilst at the spa, Nicola and Tom enjoyed the KuBu Spa Extended Indulgence Package. This pampering spa ritual, unique to KuBu Spa begins with a soothing petal foot soak and foot massage, followed by either a Balinese or Aromatherapy Full Body Massage, topped off with an Elemis Skin Solution Facial tailored to your skincare needs. At the end of the treatments guests retire to the calming KuBu Spa relaxation suite for a glass of bubbling Champagne.

After their treatments the celebrity couple headed off for a delicious lunch at the Hotel du Vin just moments away from KuBu Spa.

Nicola Commented, “I have had the best time at KuBu Spa. It has been so relaxing. It was just what I needed. Tom was very thoughtful to arrange this great experience. I am so pleased to have discovered KuBu Spa, it’s a beautiful place and is really close to where we live. Whilst I was in the Big Brother house I became really good friends with Natalie Cassidy and Gareth Thomas so I am planning another spa day with them at KuBu Spa in the near future. I know they will love it here too!”
