She wore her long blonde locks loosely around her shoulders, wet from her dip in the ocean.

She accessorised with some mirrored shades and an anklet around one ankle and was seen marching along the shore with purpose.

The model appeared to be without her young son Indio, five, and was enjoying a chilled drink before climbing aboard a jet ski and taking to the waves.

She was, however, joined by a canine companion for a dip in the sea.

Earlier this summer Jodie was seen toasting the purchase of her new pub by chugging beer as well as red wine.

The racing car driver and TV personality has purchased The Half Moon Inn with hopes of creating a 'homely' atmosphere and injecting some culinary inspiration from her travels. 

The pub itself, a Grade II Listed building in Kirdford, West Sussex, dates back to the 15th century.

In preparation for the opening, the gardens went under renovation in order to create a space for al fresco dining and will be kept pristine by an in-house gardener.

There is also a new kitchen garden where organic, home-grown vegetables are being made for a revised menu. 

A new head chef and a brand new front-of-house team are behind the exciting reopening.

There's also a few new additions to the gardens because Jodie has been learning how to manage a menagerie of farm animals since moving to the countryside.
