Carol Vorderman has never been afraid of showing her enviable figure on TV or the red carpet, but her latest weight loss journey has her showing more skin than usual as she posted a picture of herself in a bikini to her Instagram on Wednesday.

The TV personality – who regularly posts about her fitness and weight-lifting regime online – said she had lost ‘over a dress size’ after attending a fitness and cleansing retreat in Portugal over the past two weeks.

The presenter, 61, looked absolutely thrilled with her achievement as she smiled in a leopard-print bikini and denim cut-off shorts in a selfie posted to her social media account.

On her penultimate night at the retreat in Portugal, Vorderman took to Instagram to express her gratitude and weight loss journey.

“We're coming home soon....still another day to go,” wrote the 61-year-old presenter, before going on to explain the set-up of the juice cleanse.

“18 days - 3 days (going to restaurants) = 15 days on juice here at @juicemasterretreats,” she continued.

“I've dropped over a dress size and bursting with energy,” added Vorderman. “Haven't been into these shorts for a few years and now they're loose. Boommmm [sic].
