..Last month Josie Gibson lost a stone after she saw pictures of herself on holiday in Ibiza at the beginning of the year.

And returning to the popular celebrity holiday destination which spurred her weight loss regime, Josie looked happy as she took to the street with a group of friends.

Lapping up the sunshine with parts of their body and faces painted, Josie and her friends didn't seem to be afraid to show off their curves.

New woman: Josie Gibson was spotted in Ibiza last week as she holidayed with some friends

Showing off a new burst of confidence, Josie was spotted wearing an orange bikini top with a pair of short shorts.

The blonde who had the left side of her body painted orange with black stripes and decorated with glitter, let her hair down in loose curls which was styled in a side parting.

Josie, 27, completed her outfit with a pair of blue and white checked wedges, and a pair of hopped earrings.

Earlier this year Josie shocked when she was spotted running on the sand in Ibiza sporting a much larger waistline as she unveiled all in a bikini.

But the images shocked the former Big Brother winner most of all, causing her to take action and drop the pounds.

When the bubbly TV personality saw the pictures of herself in a bright pink bikini from her holiday in May she stormed into action as she now wants to look 'hot' for the beach later this year.

Speaking to Closer magazine last month, she said: 'I’d gone out there to look at houses as I was thinking of investing in some property. The last thing I expected was to get photographed and, as far as I’m concerned, I look like a total beast.'

'I was in denial about how big I’d got, but those pictures really brought it home. I couldn’t believe it when I weighed myself and realised I was 14st and a size 16.'
