Yes, Carol McGiffin! TV presenter takes stunning shot during Thailand holiday

While many are back to work and slowly recovering from the overindulgence of the festive season, a lucky few are still celebrating with holidays abroad in much sunnier, warmer climes. The latest familiar face to make us all jealous with her pictures is presenter and columnist Carol McGiffin, who is ‘living the dream’ in Thailand.

Staying in Phuket with her fiancé Mark Cassidy, the former Loose Women panellist has been posting fabulous shots of her time in the sun – and she’s looking amazing!

In her latest picture she flaunts her slim figure in a black bikini – marked with ‘beach please’ – and it’s clear that she is not letting her mastectomy get in the way of a good time.
