Eager holidaymakers grounded for too long have sparked a massive boom in travel enquiries.Industry leaders Barrhead Travel report a whopping 165 per cent surge in queries for the coming year but cautious aviation chiefs have warned it will take years for them to properly recover.The relaxation of tough Coronavirus testing rules last week, which saw the need for costly PCRs scrapped and an end to isolation protocol, is thought to be behind the boom.And the East Renfrewshire-headquartered firm say it is a sign that "confidence is returning to the market".

The Scottish Government announced last week that from Friday January 7, fully vaccinated travellers arriving here would no longer be forced to take pre-departure covid tests or self-isolate on arrival until they receive a negative result.

Neil Robertson is currently competing against Barry Hawkins, 42, in the final of the Masters in London.The Australian has opened up in the past about the “really tough” time he’s had with snooker, as he has also been busy supporting his wife during her mental health struggles.In 2017, Neil admitted that his career in professional sports had been tricky to balance with issues at home, as his wife was battling anxiety and depression for several years.Remembering the last few years with Andy Goldstein on Eurosport’s vodcast in 2020, the snooker player revealed just how tough life had been at times for the couple.The issues they experienced reportedly saw him drop down to 20 in the world rankings and miss the Masters for the first time in 10 years.Speaking to Andy he said: “What Tyson Fury did a year or so ago when he did that documentary where he discussed his issues with mental health, his anxiety and depression… “Watching that, I felt as though I was watching Mille talk. He was talking about the exact same thing more or less,” Neil explained.“She wasn’t substance-abusing with drugs, but with anxiety one of the big things people do is drink alcohol to try and settle it down, and that is what Mille was doing, which was very tough for me to try and juggle that and try and be one of the best snooker players in the world.“For a few years, I was doing that without really talking about it.
