Ferne looked sensational in her skimpy two piece, with her bikini top drawing attention to her more than ample assets thanks to its plunging cut-out design. 

It featured jewelled embellishments along the straps and fastened together at the back, while her bikini bottoms boasted similar detailing and tied together in large bows at her hips. 

Her barely-there bottoms left her slender pins firmly on view, along with the starlet's peachy posterior as she frolicked in the water - no doubt wanting to cool off from the searing temperatures overseas. 

And making sure to avoid a wardrobe mishap, Ferne was seen adjusting her bikini bottoms as she paddled in the sea.

She appeared to be embracing her changing frame as she grows ever close to her due date, with the reality star proudly showcasing her growing bump during her beach jaunt.  

Ferne boasted a bronzed glow, thanks to her sunbathing sessions in sunnier climes, and opted for a subtle make-up look - making sure to bring a touch of Essex glamour to the Balearic island. 

Channelling her quirky sense of style, the mother-to-be wore her brunette locks up into a fun-loving style of two buns that sat high on her head. 

The 'do added a touch of nostalgia to Ferne's beach attire, as fans will remember it was favoured by the likes of Emma Bunton and Billie Piper back in the 90s.

When she wasn't adding to her already impressive tan, Ferne chose to cover up in a pair of flared white trousers, that sat high up on her bump. 

They featured an elasticated waistband and mesh material, meaning Ferne's lengthy legs were still visible underneath. 

Protecting her eyes from the blazing sun rays, Ferne was seen clutching onto a pair of aviator shades, before tenderly cradling her stomach as she stopped for a moment at the water's edge. 

The This Morning presenter is set to welcome her first child in November later this year, after revealing back in April that she is expecting with her ex-boyfriend Arthur Collins. 

Her announcement had been bittersweet, however, as Ferne confirmed her pregnancy under stressful circumstances, as Arthur found himself wanted by police in connection with the acid attack that had occurred in London nightspot Mangle earlier the same month.

Arthur was arrested and charged with 14 counts of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm and one count of throwing corrosive fluid on a person with intent to do grievous bodily harm.

Just days before, while revealing she was 'initially shocked' by her pregnancy, Ferne admitted she was 'devastated' by the events that had unfolded with her former flame but has vowed to do the best for her baby.

Speaking to OK! magazine, she divulged: 'Initially I was devastated. What I had planned and was getting excited about had disappeared in a matter of moments.

'It was so hard to deal with what happened, but then I realised it was not about me but about my child. I’ll do my best for my baby.’

Admitting it had been a harrowing time for her, Ferne explained that her hormones had added to her emotional state, as she said: 'There are times I feel emotional. 

'Not in a negative way, like I'm feeling really sad, but my hormones are all over the place. But I never feel lonely as I have my baby.

'I thoroughly intend to bring up my baby as a single mum like many other women have done in the past. And I will do my best for this baby as a single mum.' 

Acid attack suspect Arthur was tasered after 30 police arrested him when he tried to jump out of a window in his underpants while covered in blood.

Dramatic footage shows Arthur being grabbed by officers and being shot with a 50,000 volt stun gun in a back garden.

He could be heard repeatedly yelling 'I'm here, I'm here' and begging them not to shoot him before sobbing and moaning during the raid in Higham Ferrers, Northamptonshire on Sunday morning.

Detective Inspector Lee McCullough said: 'This incident has caused suffering to a large group of people and left many others needing long-term treatment. The noxious substance has not yet been confirmed.'

He later appeared at Wood Green crown court with Andre Phoenix - was charged with 14 counts of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm against ten women and four men, and one count of throwing acid - which is yet to be specified.

Ferne, meanwhile, seems to be doing her best to move on from the drama that has surrounded the beginning of her pregnancy, updating fans with her journey into motherhood as gets closer to finally welcoming her unborn child.

Last month, the former I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here contestant revealed she has already set to work on her birthing plan after attending a class that focuses on that. 

She told fans via social media: 'It has completely opened my eyes & mind to my feelings towards my birth. I have nothing but pos vibes towards my birth bring on my next session.'

Ferne also revealed that she is now a 'home owner', after securing herself a new place for herself and baby. Sharing her excitement on Snapchat, she said: 'I’m like ‘This is mine!’ I’m a home owner now, it’s really scary stuff.'

While pregnancy may be a new experience for Ferne, she luckily has the expertise of her best pal Samantha Faiers to fall on, as Sam recently revealed she is expecting her second child with boyfriend Paul Knightley. 

The reality star is already mum to Baby Paul, now one, and has no doubt been putting Ferne's mind at rest, as they bond over being pregnant together. 

Sam had announced her news via Instagram, sharing a photo of her neat baby bump while holding her first child Paul in her arms. She said: 'Words can't describe how excited we are to meet you baby ❤ We love you soo much already. #babynumber2 #2under2.'
