Chilling out poolside, the Emmerdale actress - who recently revealed she weighs 11 stone - made sure that almost every inch of her honed body was on display and catching the rays.
Her stomach was flat as a pancake, complete with definition - the result of hours upon hours of ab exercises and a clean-eating plan - while her famously ample breasts almost threatened to spill out of her strappy bikini top.
Cut in a halter-neck style, the bra-style swimwear pushed the model beauty's cleavage up high, showing that although she has become a bit of a lean queen in recent years, she hasn't lost her bust.

While in Marbella, Gemma enjoyed herself as she spent time at a health and fitness retreat, and it certainly appears to have done her the world of good.
Meanwhile, the former Hollyoaks star - who was a lads' mag regular back in her younger days - recently opened up about the scrutiny over her figure, which looks markedly different from way back when.
In an interview with The Mirror, Gemma confessed she is always asked about her weight, and if she can truly be happy at 11 stone.
'I remember telling someone and they couldn’t believe I was that weight,' she told the newspaper. 'But I am 5ft 9in tall, have big thighs and I’m broad – from "good stock" as my granddad would say.

The beauty also revealed that in high school cruel bullies nicknamed her 'thunder thighs' on account of her curvaceous frame.
'I am very happy now,' the former I'm A Celebrity star said. 'I still get insecure like most girls. My legs will always be my problem area, that's where we hold weight in my family.
'I have kind of learned to love them in a way. They have been with me for 31 years carrying 11 stone around, so they are doing something right.'
Gemma, who was cast on Hollyoaks at the age of 15, said that she felt intense pressure to stay fit as a teenager, which led her to recent training.

Whenever she had an off week at the gym, she would feel down about herself and overestimate the consequences.
She says that Olly Foster - her personal trainer boyfriend of two years - helped give her perspective and develop a healthier, more sustainable approach to fitness.
The blonde stunner now wakes up at 4:30am and starts her day with yoga or 30 minutes on the exercise bike - but occasionally indulges in doughnuts as a reward.
Gemma does not own a set of scales and has frequently made the case that weighing more does not mean one is less fit.
