VANESSA Bauer showed off her washboard abs as she cosied up to a pal in a throwback snap.
The Dancing on Ice professional, 26, looked sensational in a yellow bikini in the photo which she posted to wish her mate a happy birthday.
In the beach snap Vanessa could be seen going make-up free and had clearly been for a dip as she posed with wet hair.
In contrast to her fun on the sand Vanessa is currently spending a lot of time on ice with her show partner and boyfriend Joey Essex.
But it seems the telly couple have found their own way to keep things heating up as The Sun revealed they've been snogging backstage – in front of their co-stars.
It came just hours after host Holly Willoughby and judge Christopher Dean commented on their chemistry live on the show.

A backstage source told The Sun: “A number of people saw Joey and Vanessa kissing.
“We were all surprised because until now they’ve danced around what’s happening, you know lots of ‘he’s great’, ‘she’s great’, lunches and attending parties, to the point where I think everyone wondered if there was anything other than a flirty friendship there.
“But there was nothing friendly about these kisses, if you get what I mean.
“Good on them!”

Last month Joey, 32, told The Sun he felt “blessed” to be paired with Vanessa but she was “super strict” about keeping training professional.
The cheeky reality hunk added: “You’re close and you are touching each other’s legs…and everywhere else.
“You are very intimate and it can happen.
“Honestly I don’t know how people do this show when they’re married, it would be a disaster.
“People were saying to me, like if I was married… god.
“Lucky I ain’t got a ring on my finger, eh!”
