Carol, who is half Welsh through her mother's side but calls Bristol her hometown, appears to be spending time at her second home in Pembrokeshire. It marks the first time that she has been able to return to Wales since the coronavirus travel restrictions were eased.

While her surroundings looked lovely, many fans were blown away by Carol's appearance in her slinky, cut-out, bright red swimsuit.

Angling the camera downward to give fans a full view of her ensemble, Carol captioned her snap: "It is beyond roasting hot here.....whoah.....swimming cossie on..... Happy days #WestWales."

So, what are Carol's secrets to looking so great at 60? Her diet includes plenty of fruit and veg, low-fat protein and starchy, fibre-rich carbs.

Previously speaking to the Daily Mail, Carol stressed her love for clean eating as she said: "I actually like eating whole plates of vegetables so sometimes that's what I'll eat."

She's also a fan of intermittent fasting and 28-day detox diets, which she has previously written about in her book Detox your Life. "The detox is not about counting calories or fat units, it's about being aware of the kinds of foods we put into our bodies. It's about eating more, not less," she wrote.
