Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and rap star Jay-Z are reportedly heading off on a caravan holiday together, according to newspaper reports emerging this week.

In an even more unlikely twist, the trip is being organised by their celebrity wives, Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyonce Knowles.

The glamorous destination for this bizarre holiday double-date is Florida, as the boys look to unwind when they finally finish their hectic world tour schedules this summer.

"The two couples are planning a trip around Florida," a source close to the celebrities told The Sun. "Both Chris and Jay have been on intense world tours so they really need a break.

"Gwyneth and Beyonce think the jaunt - going back to nature on a high-end Winnebago - will be the ideal getaway.

"It will be low-key but it's just what they need and they'll get to spend quality time together."

Chris for one will certainly be familiar with the world of caravans, since his father Anthony Martin owned Martins Caravans of Exeter until 1999, when he sold it for around £5 million.

Here at CaravanTimes we're not sure what we find stranger: that superstar rapper Jay-Z and mild-mannered Chris Martin are close friends, or that the glamorous Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyonce Knowles would ever be willing to go on a humble caravan holiday.

Either way, we're sure they'll all have a great time in Florida this summer with their Winnebago.
