Karl and Jasmine's sweet escape!

A romantic weekend away turned into a game of cat and mouse between paparazzi and a very camera-shy couple at Sydney Airport yesterday.

TV host Karl Stefanovic and rumoured girlfriend Jasmine Yarbrough used his Today Show co-star Richard Wilkins and son Christian Wilkins as protection to avoid being photographed together. Sneaky!

The Daily Telegraph reports that the couple were returning from a trip to visit Jasmine's parents in Brisbane.

Richard met Karl at the Sydney baggage claim and helped him sort out a missing bag, before Karl left solo in a cab. Although he was on his lonesome, the 42-year-old was seen holding two boarding passes, making it clear he hadn't travelled alone.

Meanwhile, Christian waited with Karl's lady in the airport lounge. Once Karl was gone and the coast was clear, he and Jasmine, 33, left the airport with Richard.

The blonde beauty is part owner of fashion brand Mara & Mine who create luxury shoes seen on celebrities including Kendall Jenner and Margot Robbie.

She is also a model with Chic Management and has appeared in campaigns for brands like Midori.

Jasmine has been previously linked to Australian Wallabies player and Delta Goodrem's ex Drew Mitchell who she dated on and off for years.

She and Karl reportedly met on a boat party in December after his split from wife Cass Thorburn, and have been seeing each other since Christmas.
