Countryfile's Julia Bradbury displays her 'life-saving surgery' scar as she poses in bikini

Recovering well!

Former Countryfile presenter Julia Bradbury has shared a candid bikini selfie, showing off her "life-saving surgery" scar.

Four months ago, Julia underwent a triple hernia operation.

The star revealed she had put the surgery off for a year and said had she left it any longer, her life would've been in danger.

Opening up to the Express, mum-of-three Julia revealed that surgery was "essential".

She said: "I had two umbilical hernias in my stomach and the third was an inguinal in my groin, which is not a good one, I could have died."

She added: "I left it a year to have them done and shouldn’t have."

Opening up about her recovery, Julia said she feels "useless".

Relaxing on holiday in Greece, Julia posted a candid picture of herself in her bikini, where she can be seen pointing to her scar.

Her followers were quick to praise the honest post. One said: "Think you’re doing fantastic, and you look amazing."

Another added: "Keep up the good work. Nice to know people on TV are human."

While one joked: "Are you sure thats your triple hernia scar? Far too tiny and neat. Just admit you were attacked by a pesky turtle whilst sunbathing on their nesting zone!"

Back in April, Julia shared a selfie of herself recovering from the op in hospital.

A couple of months later she revealed she was taking it "very easy".
