Melanie Sykes poses in swimwear for racy new shoot

The world saw her in her underwear last year when she posted a series of saucy public snaps to toyboy Jack Cockings on Twitter.

And now Melanie Sykes has stripped off again for a racy new shoot, proving that she's still unafraid about showing off her toned physique.

But despite her body confidence, the 42-year-old has admitted that she had to sit her young son down to tell him that her Twitter flirting with her now fiancé was 'a mistake'.
