Martine was on holiday for a few days to celebrate her 40th birthday with husband Jack McManus, son Rafferty, two, and other family members.

And by the looks of things, she was also celebrating her one stone weight loss!

Missing being on holiday already!!

The Love Actually actress has recently become an ambassador for a weight loss consultancy called Cambridge Weight Plan which offers one-to-one advice to people looking to slim down.

She has also admitted that she's lost a stone thanks to the plan.

Posting her weight loss results to Instagram, she shared a stunning photo of herself in a black dress with make-up artist and best friend Gary Cockerill.

Martine couldn't wait to share her news with her 125,000 followers, and revealed that her Lyme disease and M.E. cause her to lose weight a lot slower than the average person.

"My loss was a tiny bit slower than the average person but to be honest I expected that as many diets/food plans didn't work for me at all as the lymes disease and m.e can really play havoc with how your system works. [sic]", she wrote.

"Plus my consultant Donna stressed that my health is the most important thing so I took things a little more slowly whilst feeling more energised and even with health issues I've still managed to do it!"

Adding: "Only 5 and a half weeks and My BMI is in a much healthier range -and on my step of the plan I love that I can still have my green juices, porridge and real food."

Earlier in the month the Loose Women ladies got involved in the Body Stories campaign to promote body confidence in women who are all shapes and sizes.

However, Martine didn't take part.

They captioned the picture: "Thanks for all your support for our Body Stories campaign! #MyBodyMyStory #loosewomen."
