Gemma Collins has been praised by fans after unveiling her latest sizzling bikini shot on social media.

The 39-year-old TOWIE star appeared to be living her best life as she topped up her tan during a lavish getaway to the island of Mykonos in Greece.

The newly-single blonde bombshell showed ex James Argent what he was missing with a collection of confident bikini snaps.

Sharing the pictures with her 1.9 million Instagram followers, Gemma modelled a leopard strapless bikini and a pair of black sliders.

She finished her look off with a large pair of black shades and opted for a chic half-up do for her hair.

"Today is SO LIBERATING for Me," Gemma began in her post. "This was all a process that started with one thing learning to SELF LOVE.

"You have to believe in yourself when no one else does.

"STRENGTH does not come from what you CAN DO it comes from over coming the things you ONCE THOUGHT YOU COULD’NT.

She added: "thank you to @charlie_king85 for taking these he was sweating in the heat."

The TOWIE star had enlisted the help of pal Charlie King to take the collection of pictures

The collection of pictures appear to have been taken around the Cavo Tagoo resort where she is currently enjoying a holiday with TOWIE pal Charlie King.

Gemma has been documenting her trip ever since she touched down in the Greek island earlier this week.

As well as enjoying some time by the poolside, Gemma also danced the night away to some traditional Greek music alongside Charlie.

She also showed off her stunning cave resort room that comes with its own private access pool and stunning views overlooking the Aegean sea.

Gemma's much-needed getaway comes just weeks after the star opened up about her heartbreaking split from then-boyfriend Arg.

At the time, the reality star shared a number of screenshots of savage messages that James had sent her, including one where he called her a 'hippo'.

Since their split, James jetted out to Marbella in an attempt to get over his former on-off girlfriend.

Gemma has instead turned her attention to self-love and is looking sensational during her holiday to Mykynos.
