Loose Women star Nadia Sawalha has shared a body positive picture of herself on Instagram.

The panellist, aged 54, is currently on holiday with her family in Greece, and took to Instagram to share a fully naked picture of herself in the pool, with an empowering message to accompany the snap.

"Whole next level in body confidence for me!!!" she wrote. "I can't believe it but I only swam flaming naked in the flaming pool today!!! This has never happened!!! #liberating."

She continued with her husband Mark's reaction, saying: "Poor @mark_adderley's eyes nearly popped out of his head!! He literally squeaked 'your naked' (sic) and then took these snaps!"

But she was clear about how much she enjoyed the experience, writing: "God it felt good to swim totally free!! I'm not going to lie I would love to say I leapt out and pranced around the pool but in truth I nearly drowned trying to get my bikini back on IN the pool!!

"Not quite ready to haul myself up the steps in my birthday suit !!! Maybe next year eh girls!!"

She then finished with a question about the national willingness to dare to bare, asking her followers: "God why oh why are us Brits so hung up about nudity?! It's been the bane of my life!"

We're not sure about the answer to that one, Nadia.

Nadia has in the past spoken out about her issues with body confidence, saying: "Body confidence and body positivity is something I really struggle with and that I try and do so much about on my social media."

We're so happy she feels able to share a snap like this then!

Loose Women airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
