She had a pair of sunglasses with her, but preferred to use them as an accessory, wearing them in her hair rather than over her eyes.
Roxanne took a break from the water briefly, sitting on the side of the pool and dipping her toe in the water.

She explained the diet trick at the launch party of the Bali Health lounge in Manchester, where she avoided the calorific canaps and munched on her own secret stash of mushrooms.
‘This new role that I’ll soon be filming for is important to me and I need to look my best – mushrooms prevent me from gorging on fatty foods,' she said.
'I’ve upped the good foods in my diet. Mushrooms are one of them and they’re healthy – which is an added bonus.

‘I love mushrooms – they give me so much energy and help me to keep going which is important with my busy schedule.'
‘I especially love James Martin’s mushroom soup – it’s divine, low in calories and very easy to make.’
Roxanne claimed that raw mushrooms have helped her dropped a dress size in just under two weeks and said she’s incorporating the vegetable in to her daily diet as a way of keeping her figure ‘ship-shape’.
