The two snaps show the actress in green skinny jeans and a matching cameo crop top, with her toned midriff proudly on display, and sunglasses. Whilst one hand is up in the air, in celebratory mode, the other one is holding her new puppy, who looks happy in her owner's arms.

Elizabeth's friends, such as Amanda Holden, David Furnish and David Walliams, all loved the post and were quick to like it, whilst others left comments.

"Cute pup and cute you. Have a great time!" wrote one, whilst a second referred to the dog's breed, writing: "Glad to see you love working cocker spaniels as much as I do."

A third added: "You honestly age like a fine wine."

Earlier this month, the star had announced that she was staycationing in the UK and that she was unable to get to the beach – something that clearly changed when she visited Wales.

And just a few weeks ago, the 55-year-old model took to Instagram to share a sensational picture of herself lounging on a white lilo in the swimming pool, dressed in a patterned blue string bikini teamed with oversized shades.

Elizabeth wrote in the caption: "Happy place. UK summer."

Fans were quick to comment on the post, with one writing: "Beautiful lady," while another wrote: "Summer beauty." A third added: "Awesome photo, very cool!"
