Her actor boyfriend Andy Barnes recently called off their relationship after reportedly being ‘uncomfortable’ with her celebrity status.
But Gemma Oaten didn’t let the romantic blow dampen her spirits as she put on a sizzling display while soaking up the sun in Marbella, Spain, on Tuesday.
The 31-year-old former Emmerdale actress oozed confidence as she flaunted her rock-hard abs in a black and white zig-zag detail bikini.
Keeping her make-up look to a minimum, Gemma was spotted pulling her blonde tresses in to a low bun as she made her way in to the waters.
After a brief swim, she went on to put quite the sexy show as she showered under a stream of water.
Smiling and giggling, Gemma flexed her abs as she welcomed the water which drenched her long locks.
Finally, the soap beauty decided to soak up the rays further by lounging on a deck chair and reading a book in the sunshine.
Gemma looked in high spirits – in spite of her recent heartbreak from Andy in April, which she decided to deal with by heading for a sunny Moroccan break.
‘Gemma really thought Andy was for keeps,’ a source told The Mirror. ‘He was being very intense and had been with her at her family home. Then last Monday he turned round out of the blue and ended it.
‘It was a bit of a shock to say the least. But Gemma is a strong woman, she has been through a lot and won’t let this get her down.’
Meanwhile, the brave actress recently revealed she had struggled with an eating disorder in the past.
Calling it one of the ‘biggest heartbreaks’ of her life, she opened up about her 13-year personal battle during an appearance on Lorraine.
