Rochelle and Marvin Humes are being plagued by mosquitoes while on holiday.

The couple have been enjoying an exotic beach vacation in the Maldives with their seven-month-old daughter Alaia Mai, however, their relaxation time is being disturbed by the blood-sucking insects.

Rochelle took to Twitter on Thursday (02.01.13) to admit defeat after taking series of preventative measures to avoid any further bites.

The Saturdays star wrote: ''I've literally turned into the mosquito police! I need to chill and just accept they will bite me. they may be small but they will win lol. (sic)''

Despite the pests, the couple have enjoyed their luxurious break.

The 24-year-old pop beauty indulged in coconut cocktails on offer at the resort.

Rochelle, Marvin and Alaia Mai jetted off to the Maldives after Boxing Day (26.12.13) to share some quality family time and celebrate the New Year.

Rochelle also took time to reflect on her marriage as she reminisced about the moment Marvin popped the question two years ago in the Maldives.

In a sentimental tweet posted on New Year's Eve. (31.01.13), she gushed: ''This time 2 years ago Marvin asked me marry him, best decision I made. Although I didn't sign up for the snoring (sic)''
