LOOSE Women’s Nadia Sawalha has stripped off completely naked to go skinny dipping – thanks to some new-found body confidence.
The 54-year-old, who has been vocal about her body issues in the past, shared two pictures of herself splashing around in the water today– covering her breasts with her hands.
She admitted her husband was shocked to find her in the nude during their break in Kefalonia, telling her followers: “Whole next level in body confidence for me !!!
“I can’t believe it but I only swam flaming naked in the flaming pool today !!! This has never happened !!! #liberating.
“Poor @mark_adderley ‘s eyes nearly popped out of his head !! He literally squeaked ‘your naked ‘and then took these snaps !”
The star continued: “God it felt good to swim totally free !! I’m not going to lie I would love to say I leapt out and pranced around the pool but in truth I nearly drowned trying to get my bikini back on IN the pool!! Not quite ready to haul myself up the steps in my birthday suit !!!”

Last year Nadia stripped off with some of her co-stars for Loose Women’s empowering Body Stories photoshoot – which was a huge deal for her after revealing she was “haunted” by body shaming early in her career.
She said at the time: “I was doing a sitcom. I was 9st 7lb and my sister (Ab Fab actress Julia) was in the show as well and very, very thin.
“The wardrobe mistress took me out to get my clothes. She said to me, ‘You’re such a difficult size, you’re nothing like your sister.’ I was devastated. It haunted me for years, that.”
The actress also previously admitted that losing 4st for her 2010 fitness DVD made her “miserable”.
