Throwing her long brown hair over her shoulder and immersing herself in the cold stream of water, Zoe Hardman was clearly hoping for a role in the new I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! when she took a shower during her Kenyan beach break.
The pretty brunette channelled Myleene Klass as she donned a tiny animal print two-piece to cool off in the hot weather in Kenya, where her parents live.
Aware she was being photographed, Take Me Out: The Gossip host Zoe, 29, ensured she showed off her best angles as she cleaned herself, before removing her bikini top for the final few minutes of her shower.

Tanned and toned: Zoe showed off her figure in an animal-print bikini as she enjoyed the refreshing shower
And while Zoe looked sexy and toned
in her swimwear, she admitted in a recent interview with Closer magazine
that she suffered from an eating disorder in her early 20s.
She said: 'I wasn’t in a brilliant
place in my head. I was addicted to exercise, working out twice a day,
and eating a really low-fat diet with no carbs.
'It was only when my mum, Carol, took
me to the doctor and I was told I might not be able to have children if
I carried on that something inside me changed.'

Stripping off: Later in the shower, Zoe removed her bikini top to ensure she could have a proper wash
However, it was when she got her
first television role, on Channel 4 programme Playing It Straight, that
things went from bad to worse.
She told Closer: 'Being on TV, I felt
under pressure to look a certain way and dropped a lot of weight fast.
It affected my relationships, and friends and family were really worried
But the presenter said that after a lot of work, she has now been able to accept the away she looks, adding: 'I'm happy with my body at last.'
Zoe has been attempting to raise her
profile in recent months, and has made something of a name for herself
hosting Take Me Out: The Gossip, an accompanying show to the main ITV
dating programme, alongside Mark Wright.
