Ferne captioned her posts: "The most special moments visiting the penguins on #bouldersbeach with my girl."

She lives in Essex of course and that means a ban on travel abroad, unless for a legally permitted reason, which includes travel for work.

The star, who launched her own fitness app earlier this year, cut an incredible figure as she posed in a black bikini on her hotel balcony, showcasing the results of her fitness regime.
