The singer, 30, went completely topless as she stared out to the ocean in nothing but a pair of skimpy bikini bottoms  - flaunting her incredible backside in the process.

Bottoms up! Katie Waissel, 30, went completely topless as she stared out to the ocean in nothing but a pair of skimpy bikini bottoms - flaunting her peachy posterior

With the sun setting and two American flags lounging on the luxury boat on either side, Katie stole the spotlight as she stood with her back to the camera .

The star - who soared to fame on series seven of the X Factor - elongated her frame as she stood on her tip-toes.

With her hair piled on top of her head and her arms up in the air, it was clear Katie was in great spirits. 

And while she didn't caption the snap, she did title a picture of her lovely curls which saw her pouting at the camera.  

'Rocking this bad boy all day every day! be.YOU.tiful ! Curly Hair Don't Care!! Embrace what the lord gave you!!! #curls #hair #hairday #natural #curlyhair #stylelikeu #potd #yougotthis #rockingit #beyou #goodhyouman,' she captioned the selfie.

In December, it was claimed that she had split from American comedian Brian Moote, after just one year of marital bliss. 

And the heartbroken songstress, who married Brian following a six-month whirlwind romance, was once again pictured without her wedding ring during her jaunt along the sands.

She had an air of 'carefree' about her, after encouraging her Twitter followers to make 2017 'the year of YOU'.  

With that, she appeared to be taking a sly dig at her ex, though the reason for their split is as yet unconfirmed.

A spokesperson for Katie declined to provide further comment to MailOnline in December.

The news emerged four weeks ago, when The Sun claimed the split was the reason Katie has pulled out of playing Princess Jill in a production of Jack and The Beanstalk in Northwich in Cheshire. 

A source told the newspaper: 'Katie and Brian have split, and she is simply too upset to handle the gruelling regime of a pantomime.' 

Katie first hinted all was not well in her marriage on October 29, writing: 'Today I regret that night that I put that ring on - Beyoncé'.

She also quoted Lady Gaga's new song, Million Reasons, writing: 'And if you say something that you might even mean, It's hard to even fathom which parts I should believe.'

On 22nd, she also wrote: 'Can't go back making the same mistakes! Must go forward and make new ones! - Bridget Jones.'

Meanwhile, Katie spoke to OK! back in August about how she felt Brian was The One.

She said: ‘It was like that age-old saying: "When you know, you know". I’ve been married before so I was in no rush to get into anything else, but we’re best friends. It didn’t seem fast for me.' 

Brian and Katie met when she was in Los Angeles over two years ago through a friend.

Meanwhile, unlucky-in-love Katie split from her first husband Brad Alphonso three years ago following two months of marriage - they had only been dating for 16 weeks before the nuptials.

She was left 'devastated' after posting a series of extraordinary photographs of her battered and bruised arm on her Twitter page following an apparent disagreement with him.

It is understood that police were called after the former X Factor star bumped into male model Brad on a night out in Los Angeles.

Katie had officially filed for divorce from Alphonso 40 days previously.
