Martine McCutcheon showed off her incredible bikini body last week during a break in Spain. In our exclusive pictures, the Love Actually actress looked better than ever in a black two-piece as she lapped up the sunshine.

And Martine tells OK! she feels it, too. “For me, health has always been my wealth and now at 45 I’m finally feeling my best,” she told us. “Now that I have my health under control I feel I can make better choices and I feel that everything is falling into place. I’m the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been and I will never take that for granted.”

Martine jetted away for a photoshoot after being signed by a model agency earlier this year. While out there, she’s also been enjoying some family time with her songwriter husband Jack McManus, 36, and their six-year-old son Rafferty.

Taking to Instagram, Martine shared a picture of herself and explained: “I’m so grateful to have been able to come abroad and do a shoot whilst adding on some time with the family.”

Alongside another snap, which showed her on a beach with Rafferty, she wrote: “I can’t tell you how much I’m appreciating this trip! Jack co manages me (As well as doing his main job of being a songwriter and producer! – I know… it’s a mad house) and so we are together a lot but we work together loads!

"Having time to rest and play and to simply enjoy our bubba boy now is amazing!”

The former EastEnder has previously opened up about trying for a second child after suffering tragic miscarriages. “I’d love another – I wouldn’t worry about being a mum in my mid forties,” she said in 2018.

“If you take care of yourself and your body is in great nick and it’s meant for you it will happen.”

However, last year, she said, “I am really happy with my lot. I always said if I am blessed with a child I will be so grateful.

"Rafferty takes some topping – he is an amazing kid. We are like the Three Musketeers.”

She’s also spoken out about her struggles with depression after being diagnosed with ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis) in 2011, and then revealing in 2017 that she had Lyme disease.

“Life felt like a living hell every day. It has just been one thing after another. I have not been in a nice place financially nor with my career,” she said.

“When your health goes, you just lose so much which is why I put so much work into staying as well as possible. I absolutely love motherhood, it’s the best thing in the world.”

When it comes to body confidence, Martine has admitted it came with age. “I’m feeling so much more fulfilled, confident and sexy than I ever did in my twenties,” she confessed.

“What’s amazing is looking at people like Jennifer Lopez and Helen Mirren, who are ageing and yet their careers are still going strong.

"They’ve got this inner glow. People always thought I was really confident, but it was a good act. Genuine confidence took time for me.”

Meanwhile, the star, who’s been on The Masked Singer and Celebrity Gogglebox this year, is due to start filming
a new film in Copenhagen, where she will be playing an ex-ballerina.
