Carol was crowned best bikini body

Former Countdown star Carol, 55, has previously said she "feels sexier since turning 50". And she looked incredible in the famous jungle, showing off her toned and honed body in a series of cutout costumes.

Carol fought off tough competition from Halle Berry, 50, who came second, and Helen Mirren, 71, to take the top spot.

The survey also found that 36 per cent of women over 50 are happy to flaunt their figures in swimwear – the same percentage as 16-24 year olds.

The least body confident age group in swimwear are those aged 25 – 34, with only 30 per cent stating they are happy to bare the flesh poolside.

Carol is known for her stunning curves

Suzi Burns, PR Manager at JD Williams, said: "It seems that with age comes greater confidence. It’s great to see women over 50 of all shapes and sizes embracing the bikini trend. How you look on the beach is not about how young or thin you are but about having the confidence in yourself to work the trend - and prove that the bikini has no age limits.”

Celebrities turning 50 in 2017 who may steal the crown at the end of the year include Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, Pamela Anderson and Ulrika Jonsson.
