Shelby Tribble flaunts:The new series of TOWIE kicked off on Sunday night.
But star Shelby Tribble is enjoying a break from the Essex drama, lapping up the Spanish sunshine over the weekend.
The stunning model, who joined ITVBe’s TOWIE last series, wowed in a bright bikini as she posed up a storm on the sand.
Shelby, 25, looked sensational in her unusual crochet bikini in a bold colour pallet of red, yellow and blue.
The skimpy design highlighted Shelby’s tanned and toned curves perfectly.
The seasoned model made sure to show off her pert derriere for the camera, adjusting her tiny bikini bottoms to highlight her curves.
Shelby left her long, dark locks loose for her day of catching rays.
She added a glam full face of makeup to highlight her plump pout and gorgeous features.
A pair of retro round shades and a bright pink manicure completed her beach look.
Shelby has returned to TOWIE alongside onscreen boyfriend and TOWIE veteran Pete Wicks.
Speaking to the Daily Star over the weekend, Shelby admitted having a boob job has boosted her confidence.
‘Getting my boobs done made me happy. If you want to change something about yourself because you’re not happy with it, then so be it,’ she explained.
‘It doesn’t matter if people have had work done if it makes them feel better about themselves.’
‘For me it was a self-esteem issue. And now I’m really happy. Getting it done was my choice. It was something I wanted to do. There’s nothing wrong with that. I’ll always do what I please with my body – it’s my money and my life.’
On Sunday’s opening episode, TOWIE’s Tommy Mallet received wide praise from fans after he bravely discussed his struggles with mental health issues.
During the first episode of season 23, Tommy, 26, broke down in tears after recalling a depressive episode that he described as ‘scary’.
Speaking to girlfriend Georgia Kousoulou, 27, over a breakfast in Sardinia, the reality TV star became overwhelmed with emotion about his past experiences, but revealed it’s inspired him to help others.
Talking about his darkest moments, Tommy explained: ‘I woke up one morning I just sat there and looked at a wall. I couldn’t leave the house. I know it was only a few days but still. It was scary.’
Having experience some of his darkest moments alongside her beau, Georgia responded: ‘That’s why I called your dad, it was awful.’
With emotions starting to bubble up, : ‘I feel like I need to do something to people. I need to sort myself out first more than anything but I’d like to try and help people, because it can be naughty.
‘Young men if you’re going through something and you don’t talk about it, it can f*** you.’
