THAT stomach: toned and tanned Vicky Pattison’s bod is ah-mazing

Just what we need to brighten up a chilly October evening: a reality TV star in a tiny bikini showing off all sorts of abs.

Step forward former Geordie Shore cast member Ms Vicky Pattison – who is certainly beach-ready.

The 27-year-old took to Instagram to share a snap of her in red swimwear – with the image quickly notching up close-to 40,000 likes from her fans.

"I wish I was built that way!" said one fan, with others declaring, "you look amazing!!!" and "you looking hot."

However, just last month Vicky admitted that her incredible body transformation came at the expense of her well-being.

In recent years she has dropped down from 12st to 9st – but she admits that she's also became "obsessed" with weight loss.

"I got to the point where I was even counting how many blueberries I ate for breakfast," she told Mirror Online. "I got to the point where I looked quite ill when I was at my lowest."

After hitting a low-weight of 8st 4lbs, Ms Pattison decided that enough was enough: "Now, I'm a firm believer in everything in moderation," she added. "Life is for living."
