Tropic like it's hot! Lucy Watson shows off her stunning body in an electric blue bikini as she shares throwback shot of festive Barbados holiday with shirtless beau James Dunmore

She recently returned to British shores after celebrating Christmas and the New Year in Barbados with her boyfriend, James Dunmore.

And Lucy Watson's mind was clearly still on the Caribbean island as she took to Instagram on Thursday to share a throwback shot of themselves on holiday.

Wearing a white bandeau top over an electric blue bikini, the 25-year-old brunette beauty is seen leaning against her hunk shirtless beau as they relaxed on a boat.

Tropic like it's hot! Lucy Watson shared a throwback shot of herself holidaying in Barbados with her beau James Dunmore on Thursday

Explaining the scenario, the former Made In Chelsea star captioned the image: 'Post snorkelling with the shark-like creature and nearly having a heart attack.' 

On Sunday, Lucy shared one last bikini selfie with fans on before she and James finally returned home to London.

The TV personality displayed her toned and newly-tanned figure in a saucy Instagram snap as she soaked up her last rays on a boat trip - before she and 26-year-old beau headed to the airport.

Reclining on a boat against the stunning ocean scenery, the reality star displayed her incredible figure for all to see in the sizzling snap.

Clad in nothing but a skimpy two-piece, Lucy left her washboard abs and long, slender legs on show as she soaked up her last few hours of sun on the island.

She maintained her trademark trendy style even in her swimwear by rocking a white halterneck bikini top, which perfectly complemented her deep bronze tan.

Lucy then completed the quirky beachwear look with a set of clashing turquoise bottoms, and her signature retro rounded shades.

However as all good things must come to an end, the boat trip marked the final day of her holiday in Barbados with boyfriend James -  with the pair arriving at the airport later that afternoon.  

The pair spent the Christmas and New Year period on the idyllic Caribbean island with James' family - welcoming in 2017 at a luxurious beach party.

Posting a selfie with her man on Instagram, Lucy wrote to her followers as 2016 came to an end: 'happy new year!!! i love this one too much, be grateful for the people closest to you.' (sic) 

Clearly stronger than ever, the pair were both absent from the Made In Chelsea spin-off in the South of France last August - wanting to spend time alone and away from drama instead. 

It was then announced in September that Lucy was leaving the E4 show that catapulted her to fame four years ago.

A spokesperson told MailOnline: 'After four amazing years on Made In Chelsea, Lucy feels that now is the right time to explore some other exciting opportunities and projects that she is passionate about.

'Being part of such a successful show has been an incredible experience for her, and she wishes everyone involved all the very best for the future.'

Her friend and co-star on the show Frankie Gaff later revealed the brunette was taking time away from the spotlight to concentrate on her relationship with James.

The Made in Chelsea star told BANG Showbiz: 'Lucy's not going to be in the next series. At the moment she's decided not to because she's loved up.'

Lucy and James have been dating since early 2015 after meeting on the London-based show - and have enjoyed a number of romantic holidays together since.
