Still soaking up the sun! Emma Forbes shows off her feminine curves as she enjoys another day on the beach
She's been soaking up the sun in Barbados for week after blissful week.
And it's clear that the relaxed routine still isn't getting old for Emma Forbes.
The 46-year-old looked completely at home as she wandered along the beach in an elegant black swimming costume listening to her iPod.

Emma showed off her healthy curves as she paddled in the surf, and looked to have picked up a bit of colour during her time in the sun.
The mother-of-two has run into a few famous friends during her break, and recently posted about one encounter on her online diary.
She wrote after a chance meeting with Vera Wang: 'I have seen her yearly in Barbados, but this year, we were laughing together having a blow dry in a hair salon out there as her long flowing locks took the same amount of time as my short cropped hair…'

'So we chatted, and I was staggered to find out her age – I won’t be indiscreet and tell you, but she looks 40 something and is over 55…..amazing. An effortless dresser, and an inspiring woman to chat to who said that stress and work keep her looking great!!!'
Emma and her husband Graham Clempson and their two children Lily, 14, and Sam, 11, have spent the Christmas and New Year period at the exclusive Sandy Lane Hotel for the past four years.

The star became a household name when she presented 1990s children’s shows Going Live and Live & Kicking, but has concentrated on her radio career for the past few years.
She has also focused on raising her two children, and shared her secrets for balancing her personal and professional lives on her website, Forbesstyle.com.
'When I had my two kids, I couldn’t have gone back to the full-on career I had before because I wanted to be with them. I couldn’t bear to have missed the first step, the first smile and would have been miserable,' Emma said.

'I was also lucky that my husband stepped in financially, so I was able to take time off. Had I had to go back to work, I suspect I would have found it hard. But, like a lot of mums, I would have found a way to make it work.'
The daughter of veteran actress Nanette Newman, 77, and film director Bryan Forbes, Emma was brought up in the business and had her first walk-on part aged 10 with her mother in the cult classic The Stepford Wives, which her father directed.
Emma quit her BBC Radio 2 Saturday night show in April after allegedly clashing with bosses over time off.
