Her co-star Nadia Sawalha took the picture

Carol McGiffin was left blushing over a throwback bikini photo of herself on today's Loose Women.

When asked whether she likes posing for pictures, Carol jokingly told her co-stars: "I don't really do it that much now, I used to do it quite a lot.

"But then I was getting quite a lot of complaints from people feeling a little bit insecure about themselves every time they looked at me."

The bikini photo of Carol then popped up on screen.

Nadia explained: "I remember when we went to Marbella... that was us in Marbella," to which Carol exclaimed: "That was 20 years ago!"

Kaye Adams asked: "Were those your lying down shoes?"

Carol replied: "Those were my lying down shoes."

Nadia revealed: "I was lying round the back with a sarong and a woolly hat."

Carol said: "That was 20 years ago and I have taken a few bikini shots since and I have put a few on social media but I don't do it anymore because everybody does it.

"If I'm really honest, I don't look too bad and it's like me going, 'oh look at me, I look alright.'

"But I think that anyway so why do I need anyone else to say to me, 'oh you look great,' I don't need that."

"I keep them in albums."
