Michelle Keegan has concealed her stomach when she went for a beach stroll solo.
The actress, 32, was captured on camera walking along the golden shores in a rare photograph of the star donning a triangle bikini top in St. James Parish, in Barbados on Wednesday.
With the sun’s rays on her back, the former Our Girl star slipped her enviable little figure into a high-waisted knitted caramel coloured skirt.
Bronze Michelle continued to lap up the sunshine’s sizzling rays while she paraded her figure in her scanty ensemble on the Caribbean beach.
The former Corrie star loved the feel of the golden sand beneath her toes as she peeled off her flip flops and carried them in her hands.
Out in the roasting heat of the day, the actress toted a fan which she could use to keep her cool when the sweltering temperatures warmed her skin.
Sunglasses-clad Michelle also juggled her mobile phone in her hand.
The former soap star enjoyed some me-time after she stepped down from her leading role on BBC show Our Girl in recent days and Jacqueline Jossa has already been tipped to replace her.
It’s the job that had torn her from the arms of her husband while she worked abroad.
Michelle was spied walking alone on the beach but she had recently jetted off to the sandy shores of Jamaica to celebrate her husband Mark’s 33rd birthday.
Sparks were flying when Michelle and Mark first started dating all those years ago in 2012.
Swept up in their whirlwind showbiz romance, the couple were engaged in 2013 just nine months into dating each other.
The lovebirds were married in a romantic ceremony in May 2015.
Their marriage proved it stood the test of distance while Michelle worked away from home and eventually Mark took a job in Los Angeles before returning to the UK.
Last year, the former Coronation Street star confessed her mother was piling on the pressure for her to have children.
But Michelle clarified she wasn’t ready to have kids just yet during her appearance on the Jonathan Ross show in September.
She told Ross: “My mum is on it as well. No plans yet, but we definitely do want children in the future.”
Since then, Michelle has packed in her jet-setting acting job on Our Girl which saw her work in South Africa, Nepal and Malaysia.
The demanding job meant the actress didn’t live with her husband for four years.
She told The Sun: “I’ve had the most incredible four years on the show and I want to thank the BBC for giving me such an amazing opportunity.
“Playing Georgie has been a life changing role for me. I’ve loved every second of the adventure so it was a very hard decision to make not to return.
“I feel it is the right time to explore other exciting opportunities but I’m so happy to be part of the new series coming soon so it’s not the end just yet.”
Now it’s believed Jacqueline, of EastEnders fame, will take over from Michelle on the role.
The mother-of-two has enjoyed a fresh wave of success since she won over viewers with her I’m A Celeb stint earlier this year.
Whispers Jacqueline signed a six-figure deal with The Style were rife when she wrapped up her Australian jungle stint.
