A Place in the Sun presenter Laura Hamilton shared a sexy throwback snap from a holiday in Turkey, which perfectly shows off her amazing abs.
The 39-year-old was away with fellow TV star Hayley Sparkes and the pair looked like they were having the times of their lives.
Laura, a mum-of-two, looked fit and lean in a pale blue two-piece while she laughed her head off with Hayley, a regular on ITV.
She shared the picture with her 130,000 followers with the caption: “I’ve never filmed A Place in the Sun in Turkey but I was lucky enough to film there a few years back with some very special people.”
“We laughed, we cried, we got chased by boars on the beach. Memories and friends I will treasure forever!”
Laura’s army of fans loved it with cries of “stunning” and “two of the loveliest ladies I know” and “gorgeous”.
The former Dancing on Ice star has previously opened up about her body insecurities and how she prefers to show a good example to her children by eating the same as them and not getting fixated on diets.
She also admitted that a spiteful throwaway comment from a complete stranger about her legs 23 years ago has stayed with her ever since, causing her to have body hang-ups.
Laura also said it “hurt” and "you can’t unhear it" and it reinforced her insecurities.
Then after hitting 13 stone, she decided to do the keto (no carbs or sugar) diet plan and the “weight dropped off”.
She told Fabulous magazine: “I had never felt so confident about my legs before. But I lost my boobs, had a flat bum and my face had completely changed.
“Friends constantly told me that I didn’t look like Laura anymore.”
She had lost so much weight in fact she fears it resulted in her being diagnosed with autoimmune disease Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP).
However, she now believes it may have been triggered by pregnancy.
Laura said that the diagnosis was “a turning point” forcing her to realise that cellulite really isn’t a big deal and that “slowing down and worrying less” is the key.
Property expert Laura, who bought her first house aged just 19, says she loves her figure now and enjoys working out, as well as doing shoots for lingerie brand Curvy Kate.
She also embraces her “big boobs” and is proud that her children say they want “strong legs like you”.
Laura added: “After the year we’ve had, we just need to be grateful we have our health."
