She's been enjoying a spot of sunshine in Miami and no doubt former TOWIE star, Lucy Mecklenburgh wanted to pick up a new skill while she was there.

The 22-year-old indulged in a paddle-boarding session ahead of her flight back home to the UK.

In fact, she had such a blast that she took to Twitter to tell her 1.39million followers: 'Loved Paddle Boarding... Now home time I'm going to miss u Miami.' [sic]

Lucy looked stunning in a glittering black triangle-shaped bikini. She happily went make-up free for the outing and slicked her wet hair back.

 

She looked quite the professional as she managed to stand up on the paddle-board and glide across the water.

The pretty brunette flew to America recently with her personal trainer, Cecilia Harris, who has been helping her to shape up for some time now.

But MailOnline has learned the trip was mainly for business purposes as the pair are checking out new fitness workouts for Results With Lucy, the star's fitness website.

The site's content is often inspired by America's innovative fitness regimes, so the investigative pair have been to zumba classes and taken part in the latest workouts available there.

Lucy also tweeted that she has bumped into Simon Cowell's baby Eric while on holiday.

The TV mogul was spotted by Lucy at the Setai Miami Beach and she excitedly tweeted on Sunday, 'Just saw baby Eric he's sooooo cute!! #Miami'.

Lucy signed to Select Model Management back in August, and since quitting TOWIE at the end of 2013, has been hard at work on her fitness brand, boot camp and fashion boutique.

She's also just released a fashion campaign with her lookalike younger sister, Lydia, 18, and they model Lucy's new prom dress collection together.

The Miami trip comes just before Lucy's first health product, food supplement MeckTone, lands on shelves in Superdrug stores.

She looks too young with her hair that length. Its too little girly. I have to admit, I tend to agree that for someone that seems to eat, sleep and poop fitness she does not have definition or muscle tone. She also has cellulite. Meeeow!

For someone who prides themselves on working out and with her mecktone etc... she has no muscle definition at all and a completely flat backside... I for one would not be taking nutritional advice from her. She only puts her names to these things for the money - she doesn't know the first thing about sports science or nutrition.

She always looks fabulous.........I hate her! The new hairstyle is tres chic, I hope she keeps it for a while, I absolutely loathe all the long straggly hair extensions. The sooner that trend finishes, the better. Men must be terrified to run their fingers through a girls hair, for fear of what may happen!

That "nobody" as you call her has 1.3 million followers on Twitter. How many do you have, Diva-Dee? I'm not a Twitter user but nobodies tend not to have over a million people following every word they scribe. She also has probably the best female figure in the UK right now. How does yours shape up by comparison in a bikini? Fact is, lots of guys like to look at her and lots of girls probably aspire to have a body like that. If you don't like her, nobody's forcing you to look at her photos................haha, laughing at the "best female body in UK"...... Get yourself off to Specsavers ASAP.
