Her weight dropped down to 7st 7lbs after she was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, but Sam Faiers says she’s ‘got her curves back now’ and she clearly isn’t afraid to show them off.
Posing in a metallic snakeskin triangle bikini and reclining on some rocks while in Greece, the 23-year-old looked incredible and back to her best.
The pretty blonde is quite the jet-setter at the moment and has just returned home from a romantic break in Ibiza with her boyfriend Joey Essex, 24.
Joey posted a hilarious picture of his girlfriend planking across him while in a swimming pool in Ibiza, with her man appearing to hold her up with just one hand.
Sam wrote the caption: ‘Is it me or does he look as is he’s struggling ?
Haha ! @joeyessex90 x’ alongside the snap.
Posing up a storm: The stunning blonde stood against a mountainous backdrop and showed off her amazing figure.
Making their holiday last all the way until the airport as the couple made their way home, Joey
also posted a snap of himself relaxing in a massage chair.
He wrote: ‘Airport flex … Massage is needed,’ while posing in a pair of bright orange shorts and a matching Avirex T-shirt.
It appears as if the couple are already missing their time away, with Joey sarcastically tweeting: ‘Love England weather you know.’
Clearly feeling nostalgic, he also posted a picture of the couple and their friends partying together, along with the words: ‘Don’t mess with us #IbizaCrew2014.
Meanwhile, Sam opened up to Star! magazine about her recent struggle with Crohn’s disease, saying she’s worked hard to get her health under control and doesn’t miss big nights out.
She said: ‘Billie was pregnant at the same time I was diagnosed, so we could chill out together instead of partying. I prefer going to a nice bar or out for dinner over clubbing now, anyway.
She added that at her worst, she felt awful. ‘My joints hurt and I missed eating so much. I could only drink shakes as my bowels were covered in ulcers.
‘I had to sit at home at my mum’s for four weeks. I was just 7st 7lb and so ill. I’d rather be a size 14 and happy, any day!’
