Jake and Alison wed in 2001 but they looked as loved-up as ever as they frolicked in the water.
Following their dip they were spotted lounging by the pool at the Le Royal Meridien hotel in Dubai laughing and relaxing together.
The couple took a stroll along the beach with their kids Buster, 11, and Amber, 14, and Jake showed off his football skills in the hotel gardens.
Speaking his long-lasting relationship with Alison, Jake has previously said: “We obviously love each other a lot but also we’ve always wanted the same things.

“You’ve got to work hard at it and you’ve got to talk. Alison’s taught me that.
“We always have a date night once a week when we just hang out, catch up and talk. It’s a chance for us to check in with one another to make sure we’re still on track.
“We’re not soppy but we know we love each other a lot. Alison means the world to me.
“I feel incredibly lucky to have been with such an amazing woman for so long and I’m looking forward to the next 23 years.”
Jake recently spoke up about online bullying and the unacceptable abuse aimed at people with ginger hair.

He said: “Why is it socially acceptable to take the p*** out of someone for the colour of their hair and not for the colour of their skin?!
“All gingers have experienced being teased and bullied. I’m not even joking @GingerParrotUK I’m happy to lead the army.”
In another call to action, Jake continued: ‘Discrimination, prejudice and bullying is wrong in any guise.

“Why is it still socially acceptable to mock people with red hair? I, and many gingers, have had enough.
“Rise up my fellow redheads.’
Jake then shared a tweet from Ginger Parrot, a community for redheads that promotes red-headed celebs.
They replied: “Let’s start a red-volution!”
