She shot to fame as the long-suffering girlfriend of bisexual Made In Chelsea star Ollie Locke. But Ashley James looked well and truly ready to put her turbulent love life behind her as she showcased her incredible bikini body in a floral bandeau two-piece.
The 25-year-old reality star looked happy and relaxed as she paraded her toned and tanned figure in a pretty halterneck bikini while enjoying a session in the water at Thorpe Park in Chertsey, Surrey, with former X Factor star Kye Sones.
Wearing her wet hair tied back from her face as she emerged from the water, the Made In Chelsea beauty showcased her naturally stunning features by opting for low-key make-up as she enjoyed her active day in the sunshine. And while there’s no doubt Ashley certainly looked incredible, she had a little helping hand in the form of a fat reduction treatment on her thighs.
The former model underwent the Lipoglaze fat-freezing technique at Harley Street’s LoveLite clinic three weeks ago to treat the stubborn problem area. She wrote on her Twitter page at the time: ‘Had a #Lipoglaze fat reduction treatment on inner thighs @LoveLiteUK, can already see a massive difference! #skinnythighs #problemarea.’
And after undergoing the £670 treatment three weeks ago, the pretty blonde is already thrilled with the results: ‘3weeks since @LoveLiteUK #lipoglaze treatment & I’ve lost over an inch off each thigh. Bring on Turkey!’ Whether it was her slimmed-down thighs that had put her in a good mood or the prospect of a fun day out, but Ashley seemd to be in fantastic spirits as she enjoyed her afternoon in the water.
Whizzing through the waves, the star couldn’t keep the smile off her face as she clung on for dear life. Ashley and Kye seemed to be enjoying a good chat as they headed back to the shore with their boards, before the Made In Chelsea star peeled off her wetsuit to reveal her toned and taut tum. Perhaps the blonde’s sunny mood was due to the fact that her ex-boyfriend Ollie Locke – the cause of much her upset on the last season of the show – officially announced he had quit the series last week.
Speaking to reporters at the UK premiere of We’re The Millers, he said: ‘I’ve quit the show. I have done five seasons, I’ve had three breakups, I’ve come out as bisexual… I’ve done all that and I’ve decided the party’s over for me. ‘But I’ll never close the door fully. There are lots of other projects in mind and people are talking. It’s terrifying to be leaving the show as it’s all I known on TV. But I’m thinking about other things and I’m not going anywhere.
‘I will miss every aspect of the show and everyone on it, it was a family.’
