And reports heightened after the couple spent Christmas apart, with the 'Teenage Dream' star vacationing in Hawaii while Russell was in the UK.

Katy recently returned to the US following the conclusion of her massive worldwide 'California Dreams' tour.

At the time, she told Capital FM she was looking forward to being reunited with her husband and spending the Christmas period together.
