Tamara Ecclestone and husband Jay Rutland are currently enjoying an idyllic holiday in the Bahamas with their two-year-old daughter Sophia.

Both Tamara, 31, and Jay, 35, have shared a number of photos from the holiday, many of which show Sophia playing in the sunshine. The images prompted some social media users to suggest that the couple should be keeping a better eye on Sophia's skin.

"For all you busy bodies commenting on Sophia's tan she is not burnt in the slightest, has been wearing factor 70 and kept out of the midday sun," the mum-of-one wrote.

"She is a lucky girl that tans quickly, none the less I am fully aware of the dangers of the sun and she has never burnt. What can I say, @jayrutland is partial to a filter…"
