So just how toned are these celebs and reality TV stars? See them on their holidays and in their gardens and judge for yourself
Davina McCall is well-known for her positive approach to diet and fitness, and regularly shares snaps to show off her healthy lifestyle. And it seems the star makes no exception during the holidays, if her latest uploaded is anything to go by!
Last year, she told This Morning hosts Ruth and Eamon, ‘I fit in exercise wherever I can. This afternoon before the school run I will try and fit in ten minutes. I will work out to myself with the DVD as you can’t get a personal trainer for ten minutes. Tomorrow I will do a quick workout at home.’
Mel Sykes has always looked incredible, and now the star has been showing off her amazing body in a recent Instagram snap.
The 46 year old shared a picture of herself in a bright orange bikini while on a fitness bootcamp in Marrakesh. And by the looks of it, it’s definitely been working!
No 1 Bootcamp has members hiking, boxing, doing yoga and many more fitness activities to help stay in shape.
The mum of two gave us a glimpse into her healthy lifestyle, writing: ?Last day in paradise. Training all morning then flying home @no1_bootcamp #marrakech has been totally brilliant and all the crew are just the best.?
Fans were quick to compliment the TV star on her figure, with one writing: ?U look fab , great inspiration for our age group?. Another said: ?@msmelaniesykes beautiful lady what never ages it seems ? …….witchcraft or something going on here?.
It looks like Mel is definitely willing to put the work in for an amazing figure, and we think she looks great!
If you’ve embarked on an exercise and healthy eating regime this January, then we have just the motivation you need in the form of the wonderful Davina McCall.
Not only is she one of our absolute favourite ladies on TV, but the presenter is also a keen health and fitness fanatic, and now she’s shown off the results of her hard work for all to see!
Taking to her Instagram account, the 49-year-old mum of three posed in an eye-catching bikini with her enviable abs on display. She captioned the pic:
‘Hi. It’s a grey dreary Monday . But I know what would make you feel better.!!!! No, not that… a WORKOUT! Could be a walk, run, DVD, class, just get moving you will feel better ! NO ONE EVER REGRETTED A WORKOUT Happy Monday! #30dayfatburn ❤’
And it seems her 490k Instagram fans love her message and approach to fitness. One commented: ‘You look amazing! Unlike many so called celebs flogging us quick fixes we can see @davinalpmccall has achieved this through hard work, seeing your posts motivates me to get fitter in 2017 ❤️’ and another added: ‘I have all your dvds love working out to them , they are so much fun and you never get bored xx’
Denise always looks amazing in her bikini – and this snap of her proves it!
The 58-year-old Loose Women favourite shared this picture of herself catching some rays writing on her Twitter account: ‘Staying sober. Staying slim. Staying sane. @LincolnTownley @LighterLifeFast @gordonwise xx’
Referencing her battle with alcohol, which she recently credited husband Lincoln with overcoming, Denise looks happier and healthier than ever.
The Loose Women star also tagged Lighter Life, the meal-replacement plan which helped her shed two stone, and maintain the loss for three years, in the post.
‘LighterLife has taught me how to enjoy treats, in moderation, without slipping into bad habits of comfort eating again,’ she says.
Well, whatever you’re doing Denise, it’s certainly working! Now, if only we could get a tan like that in the UK…
Okay Imogen, we definitely need to know your secret – how do you look THIS fab less than a year after having a baby?!
The mum-of-two, who welcomed youngest daughter Siera in November 2015, shared this snap of her incredibly flat tum on her Instagram account, captioning the snap, ‘The ☀️ is shining and Wales are in the semis so let’s celebrate with The COMO bikini from @chasingsummeruk 👙👐🏻😎 I’m wearing a medium ladies!’
Her followers were quick to compliment her hourglass figure – one said, ‘You look fab!! Very jealous’, and another added, ‘
Amazing 2 beautiful babies and your body looks like this’.
Speaking previously about the pressure on women to regain their figure after pregnancy, Imogen told Now magazine, ‘It’s extremely difficult to bounce back. It takes time.’
‘Your body has been through so much – but more importantly, you’ve carried a healthy baby. That’s all that should matter. Weight will sort itself out over time.’
Davina Mccall shared a snap of her fabulously fit body with her Instagram fans this week, showing off her toned legs and tight abs.
It looks like Davina may have been out enjoying the British sunshine this weekend while also having to keep the family fed as the mum of three posed alongside her Aga cooker in a navy blue and white bikini and captioned the image ?#clothesicookin?. We hope she wore an apron when she was getting things out of the oven!
Fans were quick to heap praise on the 49 year old, calling her ?stunning?, ?hot? and ?amazing?. And true to her down-to-earth from Davina was quick to reply to lots of the comments, saying that they were ?cute?.
Doesn’t she look great?

Can you believe Cara only gave birth three months ago?
The former TOWIE star looked happy and relaxed as she posed on the beach with daughter Penelope Blu, captioning this sweet snap ‘Mummy and Daddy’s Precious Little Girl @penelope.blu Wearing one of my favourite bikini brands from @blondonboutique #vix #dubai’
Her 328,000 Instagram followers were quick to comment on Cara’s toned physique, with one writing ‘How cute!! And wow you look flippin fantastic!!!!! If that isn’t motivation I don’t know what is!!!’ and another adding ‘You look absolutely incredible @carakilbey one smoking hot mama’.
We totally agree – looking fab, Cara!
Lorraine may be 56, but she says she’s more confident in her bikini than ever – and looking at this picture, we can see why!
The TV presenter looked toned and trim as she launched her second Bikini Promise challenge, a franchise created by her ITV show to encourage everyone to feel confident and comfortable in their swimwear.
‘For the finale of the Bikini Promise last year, I danced on the banks of the River Thames in my bikini with a fantastic group of women also in their bikinis,’ mum-of-one Lorraine said. ‘Who knows what will be in store for this year’s finale!’
‘I never thought I would feel confident enough to wear a bikini on national TV but if I can do it then you can too.’
This year’s challenge has been dubbed the ‘Bikini Challenge + One’, with Lorraine explaining, ‘This plan is all about feeling healthy, fit and happy. This year we want you to get your ‘plus one’ involved as well. It could be your partner, relative or best friend.’
We have to say, after seeing Lorraine’s incredible bod, we can’t help but feel inspired…
It seems lately poor Sam Faiers can’t do anything right. She’s been criticised constantly for her parenting style in numerous photos she’s uploaded to her Instagram account with five-month-old baby Paul, from the way she carries him to images of her breastfeeding.
But it seems Sam’s latest snap has silenced her critics, with many fans taking to the social media platform to say how incredible she looks. In the pic, the new mum can be seen showing off her enviable figure in a stunning swimsuit, which she’s been modelling for a clothing company. Her caption reads: ‘Love👙👉🏼@unique_avenue #swimsuitseason’
It’s hard to believe the 25-year-old former TOWIE star only gave birth five months ago, and it seems her fans are in disbelief too. One commented: ‘she had a baby about 3 weeks ago omdz’ while another added: ‘As ifffffff she’s had a baby and still looks this good’.
We have to agree – Sam, tell us your secret!
Britney Spears has been working hard to get healthy of late, and it looks like her efforts are definitely paying off, after she shared this pic of her looking svelte and sunkissed on her Instagram account.
‘Bought three new swimsuits today 👙 This one is my favorite!’ she exclaimed alongside the slinky selfies.
Sources close to the singer say she’s upped her exercise regime, combining HIIT workouts with home yoga and plenty of walking.
However, the mum-of-two ‘still eats fast food’, including chips and sweet tea, a source told US Weekly, adding that she eats egg whites, whole wheat toast and fruit to fuel her gym sessions. ‘She doesn?t starve herself. She?s more about working out.’
Sounds like a pretty good balance to us, Britney!
Now we don’t know about you, but this is not what we look like after the Easter weekend…
It is, however, what the lovely Davina McCall looks like, even after a few chocolate eggs and a bout of illness! The mum of three showed off her amazing beach bod on her Instagram account, captioning this rather zen snap:
‘Back on it after Easter sugar coma and three weeks off training with the lurgy… Feel soooooooo gooooood @edthept (legs and abs and some ball work this am)’
Of course, we can’t begrudge Davina this gorgeous healthy figure, because as you’ll know if you’ve ever done one of her fitness DVDs, she works pretty darn hard for it.
However, if you’re after some inspiration to get out your trainers and break a sweat, hers is definitely the account to follow…
We don’t know what to look at first – Denise’s new hair, or her amazing figure!
The 57 year old shared this picture of herself catching some rays in Majorca on her Twitter account, writing ‘Bikini alert!!’ I’ve realised I look so much like my mum it’s brought a tear to my eye!! @lighterlife’
Denise sadly lost her mother on her birthday in 2012, making the resemblance particularly poignant.
She also tagged Lighter Life, the meal-replacement plan which she credits with helping her shed two stone, and maintain the loss for three years, in the post. ‘LighterLife has taught me how to enjoy treats, in moderation, without slipping into bad habits of comfort eating again,’ she says.
Well, whatever you’re doing Denise, it’s certainly working! Now, if only we could get a tan like that in the UK…
Look who’s jetted off to warmer weather!
Michelle Heaton has been sharing envy-inducing snaps on her Instagram, and the 36-year-old mum of two also made sure to include a few of her incredible beach bod.
In a series of snaps, the star shared bits of her family holiday in Turks and Caicos, including a boat ride with husband Hugh Hanley.
In one of the bikini snaps, posing in a green and pink floral bikini, the star wrote: ‘Been a long time since wearing a bikini! After the operations & the kids.. Stay strong girls if I can do it you can!’
The bikini pics are the first ones the former Liberty-X singer has shared since becoming a mum and having big cancer-preventing operations. In 2012 she was diagnosed with a mutated BRCA2 gene and had an 80% chance of developing breast cancer. She underwent a double mastectomy and had breast reconstructive surgery in November 2012.
In 2015 she underwent a hysterectomy and ovariectomy, to reduce her risk of developing ovarian cancer, which led her to having a very early menopause.
Last October, a year after the operation to remove her uterus, Michelle spoke out on how she had been doing since the surgery on Lorraine.
‘It’s been a turbulent year being erratic and loud with my husband’, she said. ‘But I’m on a healthy path, as a young person going through menopause its been difficult to get my head around.’
You’re certainly looking amazing Michelle!
After a tough 2015, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is finally enjoying spending some time relaxing and getting away from it all.
Girls Aloud bandmate Kimberley Walsh is due to get married on the Caribbean island of Barbados in the next couple of days, and best pal Cheryl decided to jet out ahead of the big day to catch some sun.
Having only been on the island, which is home to Rihanna, for 24 hours, the Newcastle pop starlet has wasted no time in heading straight to the beach.
Sharing her bikini snap with her 2 million Instagram fans, Cheryl said; ‘I could get used to this island life.’
We’re not at all envious of that tan Cheryl… !
We’re used to seeing her in stylish clothes and sky high heels, but thanks to our pal David, we got a very rare glimpse of Victoria’s relaxed beach self – and it’s clear the mother-of-four is in excellent shape!
Standing next to her adorable little girl Harper, the singer-turned-designer looks like she’s having an amazing time watching a gorgeous sunset while on holiday with the family.
The Beckhams went on a cosy snow trip for Christmas, but it seems they preferred a warmer location to ring in 2016.
Brooklyn, the eldest son of the Beckham brood, has also been sharing pictures from the tropical getaway, including one of him walking with Harper on a beach, having ‘special time’ with his little sister. So cute!
She still hadn’t publicly confirmed her pregnancy but there’s no shade of doubt now – look at that gorgeous baby bump!
The Oscar winning actress shared this sweet snap of her on holiday, giving us a rare glimpse of her in a bikini.
The beautiful mum-to-be explained the reason for posting such an ‘out of character’ picture on social media, saying that if any image of her on the beach was going to be published, it should be one she’s comfortable with (and with a nice filter too – how we get you Anne!).
‘Happy 2016 to my beautiful Instafriends! So, posting a bikini pic is a little out of character for me, but just now while I was at the beach I noticed I was being photographed. I figure if this kind of photo is going to be out in the world it should at least be an image that makes me happy (and be one that was taken with my consent. And with a filter 🙂 Wishing you love, light and blessings for the year ahead!’, the star wrote on Instagram.
Looks like 2016 will be a very special year for Anne – congrats!
We’re used to seeing her in a patriotic blue swimsuit, but Rebecca Adlington decided it was time to swap the swimming pools for the warm and inviting waters of Antigua.
Wearing a pink bikini, the mum of one showed how much fun she’s having with her five-month-old daughter Summer.
Posting the holiday photo on Instagram, the ex-I’m A Celeb contestant wrote: ‘This is pay back to all those who went on holiday in the summer and made me so jealous! Took Summer is the sea for the first time, she loved it!’
The four-time medallist, who gave birth in June, recently gave a very honest account of her struggle to lose her baby weight.
‘I couldn’t get into my old work clothes. I?d expected my body to spring back after the birth. I thought, “It?s just a bump, it?ll shrink back”‘, she wrote in Mother and Baby. ‘Seeing celebs on the TV and in magazines go back to normal within a month, I thought it would be like that for me. But it?s not been the case.’
We think you look great Becky!
Yes, ladies, this bikini body belongs to Liz Hurley, aged FIFTY.
The mum-of-one, who’s currently holidaying somewhere in paradise, has been showing off her incredible figure in an array of brightly coloured bikinis – and rather comically using the hashtag #elizabethhurleybeach to document her envy-inducing bikini-bod snaps.
She’s not alone of course, her 13-year-old son – no we don’t know when he got that grown-up either – looks to be doing a great job at keeping his mum company.
And we are not jealous. Nope, not jealous at all.

It’s hard to believe that Miss Lloyd is mum to not one, not two, but three boys! Especially when you catch a glimpse of her taut tummy…
The former WAG, who divorced football player Jamie O’Hara last year after two and a half years of marriage, has been holidaying with girlfriends in the party capital of Ibiza, and sharing a few pics along the way!
31-year-old Danielle posted this snap of herself looking incredible in a fuschia pink bikini, captioning the pic: ‘Bikini @annalous and my gorgeous new kaftan @designsbyangharadowen’
Looking gorgeous Danielle!
We cannot stop staring at this picture.
This is Julia Bradbury, 45-year-old mum of three. We’ll repeat that; mum of three.
Just over five months ago the TV presenter gave birth to her baby twins, Xanthe and Zena, and just look at that tum – it’s as trim as anything.
The star shared the bikini and tiara-clad picture on her Instagram account during her holiday in Ibiza. She said: ‘Princess Elsa says farewell #ibizacrew2015 @ibanadelrio @iammrvincent @rokstoneent @joehartfield @brittaheubeck @jazzydolly07 It Go! Let It Go!’
And we’re not jealous at all…
(We are. Very.)
It seems as though not a day goes by when Imogen Thomas isn’t in a bikini, and to be fair, we can’t blame her, when you look THIS good in one when heavily pregnant.
The 32-year-old Welsh star shared the picture of her on her Instagram account while she enjoyed the rather fleeting English sunshine.
The former Big Brother contestant is expecting her second child, another girl, with her boyfriend Adam Horsley. The pair are already parents to two-year-old Ariana Siena.
Wow! We couldn’t help but be impressed when Katie showed off her amazing bikini body – how has she had five kids?
Looks like Lisa is having the time of her life on her summer hols, and we don’t blame her!
The 43-year-old, who won Celebrity MasterChef back in 2010, has been enjoying a sunshine break with her chef boyfriend John Torode in St Tropez.
The loved up pair, who began dating when they met on his show three years ago, have been sharing many snaps from their holiday – and we just love this one of bikini-clad Lisa taking a dip in the sea! She captioned the photo: ‘Happy holidays!!!’
Lisa, you look sensational!
We remember Katy from her Blue Peter presenting days, and we can’t be the only ones who think she hasn’t changed at all?! The star doesn’t seem to have aged a day, and her bikini body is just as impressive!
Katy has been sharing snaps of her holiday in Corfu with her daughter Kaya, nine, and son Akira, five. She captioned the photo:
She’s recently got back into training, revealing she intends on lots of bike rides over the school holidays to keep her fitness up. ‘And on the days time runs away with me, I try to do 25 minutes of exercise at home in my garage. We can all spare 25 minutes to train within a day, right?’
For a bikini bod like that, we might try to spare 25 mins a day too!
How incredible does Mel look in a bikini!?
The 44-year-old-presenter, who’s mum to Valentino, 11, and Roman, 13, has been enjoying a relaxing sunshine break with her family – and showing off her hard work with her diet and fitness regime in the process!
Stripping down to her bright pink bikini to reveal her impressive physique, she captioned the photo:
‘Anybody can look fit. If you train and eat well, then that’s what happens. I’m no different. For me, it’s just about feeling good and looking good and it gives me confidence. If I’m in a bikini, I feel good.’
Yes this is Davina, 47-year-old and mum to Holly, Tilly and Chester.
The star, who’s known as much for her health and fitness as she is for her television presenting, shared this picture of her doing a backward dive into the swimming pool on her holiday in Portugal.
She shared this picture – and an accompanying video of the dive in slow mo – on her Instagram page with the caption: ‘Last day of holibobs.’
Davina’s puts her figure down to cutting out refined sugar from her diet. She even wrote a book on it!
*Pushes jammy dodger away*
How is it possible that Michelle Keegan looks like this in a bikini?
The brand new Mrs Wright, who married her TV star husband Mark Wright in a romantic ceremony in May this year, has been showing off her incredibly taught tummy during a friend’s hen do in Marbella. She posted this snap to her Instagram account with the caption:
‘Had the BEST weekend on @littlepintsize hen! Safe to say Marbella wiped the floor with me! My bikini and kaftan is from @bikini_reef.’
According to her hubby, the pint-sized Emmerdale star, 28, doesn’t stick to a hardcore diet. He told New! magazine ‘She doesn’t diet that much. She had a Magnum ice cream at 12 o’clock last night in bed! She just goes to the gym two to three times a week and watches what she eats.’
All we heard in all of that was Magnum. Who’s for an ice cream?
It’s hard to believe Vanessa Paradis is 42 years old!
The stunning ex model, who has two children with ex Johnny Depp, was pictured looking happy and relaxed on the beach in Greece with her son Jack, 13. She chose a simple black bikini to show off her enviable figure, and doesn’t she look amazing?
It’s been reported that Paradis likes to stay trim by walking everywhere, exercising for 45 minutes a day. ‘I love yoga or Pilates. I have tapes and I do it on my own’, she says.
Vanessa and Johnny are also parents to 16-year-old Lily-Rose.
We couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw this picture of 51-year-old Elle Macpherson (yes, you read right, 51!).
The model, who’s been holidaying with her billionaire hubby of two years Jeff Soffer, shared this photo on Instagram, proving exactly why she’s famously known as ‘The Body’. She can be seen holding a tub of her own brand supplement, The Super Elixir – which she credits for keeping her healthy. ‘The improvements to my digestion, energy, immune system, skin are quite amazing!’ Elle said in the post.
Whatever she’s doing it seems to be working – that tum could give 21-year-olds a run for their money!
You’ve gotta love our Lorraine. The brilliant TV presenter stripped down to her swimwear live on her morning programme to show what body confidence really looks like!
And it’s fair to say the 55-year-old mum of one looks absolutely incredible. Lorraine was joined by a group of volunteers who had all lost weight by following the show’s Bikini Promise diet, and also flaunted their figures in beachwear.
The Bikini Promise was a five-week programme that encouraged the star’s viewers to ‘promise to be fit, healthy and wear your bikini with confidence no matter of your age, shape and size’, with experts Sally Bee and Maxine Jones on hand to offer advice on everything from healthy homecooked food to exercise regimes.
Lorraine, who credits her own fabulous figure to regular Zumba classes, said, ‘I feel I am in the best shape I have been in for a very long time. I’m a 55 year old mum and I feel that if I can wear a bikini then anyone can.’
It’s not easy to look this good whilst dancing to ‘Moves Like Jagger’ in heels, but Lorraine smashed it!
Whatever Eva’s doing, it must be working. Because at the age of 40 she looks incredible!
The stunning star and her pals have been sharing snaps of their boat holiday in Marbella, and by the look of that bod we’re not surprised Eva seems more than comfortable posing in her slinky nude bikini. She matched her look with gold hoops, a cream sun hat and some Victoria Beckham sunglasses – courtesy, of course, of her good friend VB!
Is it just us or does Ms Longoria look better and better with age!? She doesn’t seem to have changed a bit since Desperate Housewives first hit our screens 10 years ago.
Katie Piper you are giving us some serious bikini body envy!
The stunning star, 31, has been catching some rays with her daughter, Belle, on the hottest day of the year, and shared this cute snap to her Instagram account with the caption: ‘Jumping around with my baby’
We can’t get over her mumbod, it’s hard to believe she gave birth in March last year! Katie, who plans to marry her fiancé Richard James Sutton this year, is a poster girl for body confidence and it’s great to see her flaunting her figure and enjoying time with her little one.
Jealous, us? Well, okay, maybe a tiny bit, because not only does 52-year-old Demi look absolutely incredible in her swimwear, she’s managing to outshine her daughters – who are only 21 and 23, respectively!
The actress and mum of three showed off her seriously toned tum in a photo taken on Father’s Day and posted on Tallulah’s Instagram, which she captioned:
‘When you can’t be with the papa…. #freeslw #POOLPARTY #mymomsbodtho’It’s a shame the girls didn’t manage to spend the day with dad Bruce Willis, but we reckon a poolside day with mum is a pretty good alternative – especially when you all look this amazing in a bikini!
Oh the life of a pop star! Not only do you get to spend your time in exotic locations – you get to look like this while you do it!
Ladies, you may want to avert your eyes. Because not only has the 33-year-old Saturdays singer had two babies, but she only gave birth to son Tadhg four months ago!
Una has been enjoying a sunshine break with her rubgy hubby Ben Foden, and posting some happy snaps along the way. She captioned this bikini photo: ‘Holiday Pose! #cheesy’
It’s hard to believe the star has two children with a tummy that taut, but Una has spoken out in the past about her struggles to lose the weight she put on with her first child, daughter Aoife Belle, who she gave birth to in March 2012.
‘I’m aware I’m getting a bit older and after having a baby I have to work harder’, she told Women’s Fitness magazine.
‘My abs were the hardest part to tone after pregnancy. My tummy felt like jelly for a while and it’s much more difficult to tone than it used to be.’
Well whatever she did the first time around certainly seems to have worked for the second, you look amazing Una!
Okay, so if this image isn’t enough to make you put down your third (okay, okay, fourth) Hobnob of the morning, then nothing is!
Melanie Sykes, 44, looks absolutely incredible in this picture she posted on her Twitter account.
The TV presenter, who’s mum to Roman, born 2002, and Valentino Luca, born 2004, has long been known for being a gym bunny, and is proof that hard work really does pay off.
The I’m A Celebrity star wrote alongside it: ‘On the cover of a mag today but gutted cos it doesn’t look like me this is me, bed hair, no makeup trying on a bikini.’
We can’t remember the last time we saw an ab. This woman has six. *Scoffs another Hobnob*
Image: Twitter/Melanie Sykes
Danielle, are you sure you’ve had three babies?!
It’s positively unfair that Miss Lloyd’s tum looks like this, but if we were her we’d definitely be showing it off too. The 31 year old looks relaxed and happy in the snap she uploaded to her Instagram with the caption:
Looks like someone’s enjoying her honeymoon! The new Mrs Horner, aka Ginger Spice, is soaking up the sun in Cannes with her brand new husband Christian – who she married in a traditional ceremony at the weekend, in Bedfordshire.
And the 42 year old has more than one reason to smile, showing off a super-toned tum in a bright leopard print bikini in this snap she shared on her Instagram! She captioned the photo: ‘Just had the spag bol !’ along with the heading ‘Breath in Mrs H’.
The Spice Girls star, who’s a huge fan of yoga, looks happy and relaxed on her romantic getaway. If spag bol is the answer to her enviable figure than we’ll be making a big batch tonight!
Sometimes, life just isn’t fair. Like when you’re minding your own business, scrolling through Instagram and come across this.
Myleene took to social media to share this pic of her enviable curves while on holiday with her two daughters (Ava, seven, and Hero, four) in Florida. With her toned tum on display in a bright blue bikini that she designed for Littlewoods, it’s fair to say the 37 year old is looking better (and happier) than ever!
Looks like reality TV star Charlotte couldn’t wait to show off her recent three stone weight loss if the pic on the left is anything to go by!
The Geordie lass is in Australia filming Ex On The Beach and it seems she’s packed a whole host of bikinis to flatter her new figure, which she achieved thanks to her best-selling fitness DVD: 3 Minute Belly Blitz. And the results speak for themselves! Slimming from a size 16 to an 8, her toned abs and slim figure are a far cry from her Geordie Shore days.
Okay okay, so pictures like this do incite a certain amount of ‘for goodness sake’ in us but still, we can’t help but look (by look of course we mean stare, a lot) and wonder how this is even possible.
45-year-old mum of two Jen took to Instagram to share this scantily-clad pic of her in a bikini with the caption: ‘Soooo chilly this morning…I want summer back… #sunnydays #warmnights #tanskin #hangingbythepool #julybaby #LEO #Ilovesummer’.
Yes, it’s verging on the annoying. But if we looked like this at 45 we couldn’t be held responsible for our photo-sharing actions either…
Swit swoo! Denise, can we please, please look a little like this at 40 too? The stunning blonde, who turned 40 in May, shared this holiday snap of herself catching some rays in a lovely yellow bikini and some rather brilliant sunnies!
She captioned the photo: ‘Loving @ElizabethHurley bikinis and beach cover ups on this mini break in Puglia Italy. #beachparty’
Denise – we wish we knew your secret!
Well you’d never mistake Beyonce for being at all shy! The slender star showed off her enviable figure while posing on a boat during celebrations for her 33rd birthday.
The post comes amid speculation that Queen Bey has been digitally slimming herself before posting her snaps online, but we can’t believe that could be true! And if you looked like this, why would you?
Looking good Lily! The superstar singer, who’s a mum to Ethel Mary (two) and Marnie Rose (one), has been taking some time out from her busy tour. 29-year-old Lily shared this snap on Instagram of her relaxing in the sunshine on holiday in St Tropez, and we’re glad to see she’s putting her feet up!
We love a mismatched bikini, it’s a great way to get the most wear out of your holiday wardrobe too. Thanks for the bikini inspiration Lily!
All we have to say is ‘WOW’ Myleene! Doesn’t the beautiful mum of two look fantastic?
Myleene couldn’t resist posting this super-toned picture of her on holiday in South Africa wearing one of her own bikini creations designed for Littlewoods. The gorgeous presenter tweeted the picture with the caption: ‘Lota love for my bikini. It’s out next week in my #littlewoods range. Go treat yourselves girls xxx #preview.’
We can’t think of a better advertisement for her new range (if only she could guarantee we’d look like this while wearing it too!)
Read our interview with the lovely Myleene here
Kelly posted a video of her and a friend getting covered in a bucket of freezing cold water on her Instagram account, and she looks amazing! We love that Kelly’s curvy and healthy and hasn’t caved to people who’ve criticised her weight in the past.
Katie Price famously called Kelly a ‘heifer’ earlier this year. Well, we think this pic proves Kelly’s never looked better!
Never one to shy away from hard work when it comes to keeping her famous figure in check, it seems Cheryl was keen to show off her exercise efforts in a picture she posted to her Instagram.
Alexandra Burke enjoys some downtime out and about on holiday in Miami.
The X Factor winner was spotted getting a piggy back through the water by a hunky male pal. Lucky her!
Helen Flanagan might have been scared of the rickety wooden bridge on her entrance to the jungle, but after a few days in the I’m A Celeb jungle, it seems the Corrie star is feeling right at home!
Pop star Rihanna posted this sunny snap of herself relaxing by the pool on Twitter. She said, ‘We havin’ a celebration…we have an album!’ The 24-year-old showed off her toned tummy and her Egyptian-style tattoo. We’d be celebrating too, if we looked like that!
Model Heidi Klum, who is 40 (yes, 40!) tweeted this pic of her relaxing in the sunshine. The mum of four wrote ‘finally…..relaxation!!’ and shared this rather gorgeous shot of her with her followers. Heidi, who split from Seal in January this year, is launching a new baby clothes range at Babies R Us in New York soon.
Actress Lindsay Lohan is currently playing Elizabeth Taylor in a new film about her life. Linds looked every inch the Hollywood star – and much happier than we’ve seen her for a while – as she relaxed with friends on the beach in LA.
Kym Marsh got the girls together and hit Marbella at the weekend for her hen party. She was all smiles as she posed by the pool, glass of fizz in hand, wearing a striped bikini. Not long ’til the big day now!
Singer Ashley Tisdale spent her 27th birthday soaking up the sun on an exclusive Malibu beach in LA. Jealous, us?
Feel as good as Ashley with our look younger diet
Not a bad way to spend the day – actress Dakota Fanning splashed about in a very revealing bikini on Brooklyn beach in New York while filming her latest movie, Good Girls Gone Bad.
Enjoying a family holiday in Rio with her twins, Jennifer Lopez showed off her killer bod in a white bikini. New boyfriend, Casper Smart, was on bucket and spade duty!
