While being gay is not illegal there, same-sex marriages and adoption have been banned by law for a decade.

Elliott revealed (via The Telegraph): “We had a problem when we visited Honduras on holiday. It was homophobia. I don’t want to go into detail, but we had to leave."

While they were on their honeymoon, Stephen also posted a photo of himself on Instagram, with bananas on his head on, but just hours later he quit the site, claiming: “Hounded off. Goodbye.”

The couple had been planning their big adventure after tying the knot in a secret ceremony in Norfolk in January.

They even chose to have a gap in between the wedding and they honeymoon, so they could have longer to relax on holiday.

Elliott had previously spoken of how excited he was for the trip, telling the Daily Mail: "Stephen takes me on his travels and he educates me.

"Many of the countries Stephen’s been to before, but he likes to see them through new eyes with me.

"It has been an amazing bonding experience."
