PATSY Palmer showed off her incredible bikini body and said she was "inspired by J-Lo" to flash the flesh.

The ex-EastEnders star admitted that she feels incredible after committing to "self-care routines".

The former soap star gave fans a glimpse of her trim physique in a black bandeau which showcased her toned abs.

Patsy completed her beach attire with a floral kimono and a pair of purple bikini bottoms.

In the first photo, Patsy's fiery tresses covered her face as she posed in a garden surrounded by tropical trees.

Embrace your inner J-Lo, we all need inspiration, enjoy every age.

Wearing a summer hat, the TV favourite glanced away from the camera and donned a pair of dark shades.

She then shared a full-length pic, wearing a pair of wedged sandals which showed off her toned pins.

Patsy wrote: "Embrace your inner @jlo, we all need inspiration, enjoy every age.

"I’ll be 50 next year and feel so good inside it can only translate outside.

"I honestly don’t work out enough as you can see but I play tennis sporadically.

"And yoga not as often as I should but try to keep that as regular as a normal busy person can.

"My official photographer is over the moon with his wifey @richardmerkell."

Patsy, who moved to the US in 2014, said that she was proud of the experiences that she created for herself.

She added: "The best bit is his wifey couldn’t be happier with her selfcare routines. Be happy, have fun, eat healthy, drink water, dance often, sing often, love always, don’t be a saint and leave others lives to them.

"Create your own experiences."


In May, Patsy shared a rare picture of her family to mark her 49th birthday.

In the snap she is seen alongside her gorgeous children Fenton, Emilia and Bertie.

Her husband Richard Merkell, who is dad to the trio, is also seen in the family portrait.

Alongside the picture, she wrote: So grateful. Such a wonderful birthday . Thank you family for making it so special. Next stop dinner.”
