She’s had a difficult year in the wake of her ex boyfriend Adam Johnson’s conviction.

But Stacey Flounders, 26, put all of her troubles behind her as she frolicked on a beach in Dubai with a gal pal earlier this week.

The former WAG and mum-of-one looked carefree as she rinsed her lock brunette locks with water from a hosepipe while sharing laughs in the sunshine.

She flaunted her slender curves as she stood on the white sand, cooling herself off with a jet of water which glistened as it hit her body.

Her friend then helped her out by taking control of the hose, spraying the Hartlepool lass as she held up her hair with a smile on her face.
