However, the former EastEnders star soon revealed that her daring swimwear wasn't for the UK, but that she was soon to be jetting off to a mystery destination. The star looked amazing in her swimwear, which consisted of a black halter bikini top and a matching set of high-waisted bottoms. Making sure she was prepared for the holiday heat, she also brought with her a straw sunhat, black sandals and a pair of red-framed sunglasses.

Black really suits Martine

The actress stunned fans in her figure-hugging dress and elaborate hat, which was reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn, who originally starred as the cockney flower girl who transforms into a woman of poise and polish.
