Fearne Cotton puts Diamond Jubilee criticism behind her and shows off slender beach body in a floral bikini

After experiencing what she described as cyber bullying, Fearne Cotton has fled the country for warmer climes.
The radio and TV host may have come under heavy criticism for her lacklustre presenting of the BBC’s Diamond Jubilee coverage, but she clearly has at least one fan.
The 30-year-old's boyfriend couldn't keep his hands off her as they frolicked on the beach in Barbados, earlier today.

A lean looking Jesse Wood, who wore blue shorts, showed his support for his girlfriend by draping himself over her as she lay still on a sun lounger.
The couple looked like they were having a good time relaxing in the warm sunshine, and fooling around at the water's edge.
BBC Radio 1 DJ Fearne showed off her slender figure in a floral two-piece bikini and a pair of round rim sunglasses.

The heavily tattooed star kicked back and stayed hydrated by drinking bottled water in hot temperatures while toned Jesse kept his cool by taking a dip in the sea.
Fearne looks to have put her emotional Jubilee pageant coverage behind her after hitting back at the people who complained about her skills as a presenter.
After the barrage of abuse, she tweeted at the time: 'I was bullied at school so there’s no way I’m having it as a grown woman.'

'Grown men who slag me off in articles or online are huge bullies.
'I’m from a working-class family and have worked hard to get to where I am today. Others will just sit and do nothing but judge.
'People who sit lazily and judge others will never grow. They’ll never take a look at themselves or feel content. Shame so many do.

'I love my job and wouldn’t be doing it if I wasn’t any good at it. I have been working non-stop for 15 years, thank you.'
Her public defence came after the BBC received almost 5000 complaints about its coverage, and after Miss Cotton incorrectly addressed a war veteran named John as Jim.
