Zara McDermott looked stunning in a bright pink bikini while on holiday in Marbella.

The documentary presenter and former Love Island contestant, 25, wowed in a bright orange and pink two piece with her tied up in a loose bun and looked relaxed while soaking up the sun in Spain.

Zara is currently in Marbella, Spain, with boyfriend and Made in Chelsea star, Sam Thompson, to celebrate his 30th birthday.

The couple have been spending time with friends and family, including Sam's best friend, The Only Way is Essex star Pete Wicks, 33, who went all out to surprise him last week.

Zara paid a loving tribute to her beau on his birthday as she wrote on Instagram: "HAPPY 30th BIRTHDAY. I cannot believe you’re thirty! Our relationship is non stop laughter, you annoying me (which I wouldn’t have any other way), but it’s also supporting each other in every way and being each others biggest champion.

"I am so grateful for you every day. Your infectious energy is the most wonderful thing to be around. You have this amazing gift where you can light up any room you walk into. No matter how bad of a day someone is having, you can always make them smile, laugh and forget about their worries.

"You are so kind to every single person you meet, which is so rare nowadays. I hope you enjoy this video of some of our funniest, belly laugh moments. I can’t wait to keep laughing with you until we are old and grey!!! @samthompsonuk."

Zara has been striving to be more open about her body, having gone on a fitness journey in recent years, which she shares regularly with her 1.6million followers.

And earlier this summer, she posted candid before and after images of her 'bloated' stomach in a video on her Instagram page to make people aware that everyone has body hang-ups, as well as breaking the barrier of 'Insta vs reality'.

The clip began with a photo of Zara in a skimpy white and pink bikini with what she called "pre-9am abs", then switching to a clip of her lifting her t-shirt to show her bloated stomach later in the day.

The clip was captioned: "PSA no one's body looks the same all day every day!!!!!!!"

"So I’ve been speaking to a lot of people recently and I’ve been learning of the importance of being completely transparent on social media," she wrote.

"I think sometimes when you’re constantly posing and trying to get the perfect angle in pictures you post online (like I am), people can think that you actually look like that 24/7.

"And maybe that’s something I haven’t completely processed before. Because I am in the social media world myself, when I see a photo of someone else, and their body looks “perfect”, I subliminally KNOW how much went into creating that photo, because I know how much effort goes into the photos I take!!

"And look, there’s nothing wrong with wanting to get a nice photo of yourself and choosing the best one- we all do it. But it’s also important to emphasise that the perfect angle, light, time of day (the first video was of my pre-9am abs that I ONLY get once I wake up before I’ve eaten) are all components of creating a “perfect” photo.
