Frankie Essex relaxes by the pool in orange bikini after coffee detox saw her drop five poundsJanuary 10, 2019
The 30-year-old reality star, who is on a break in Tenerife, soaked up the sunshine while controversy over her slimming methods raged back home.
The Towie star, whose brother is Joey Essex, was seen smoothing a towel down on her sun lounger before adjusting her bikini and relaxing by the pool.
Frankie has been trying to improve her health and fitness after gaining two stone while injured.
However, some of the methods she's used to lose weight have attracted controversy.
The Sun told today how some fans had slammed her after she posed with a packet of Skinny Coffee, claiming: "So happy with my 5lbs weight loss with @skinnycoffeeclub detox over."
"You should be a role model to our young girls instead of promoting this c***."
Another wrote: "Stop advertising utter rubbish. You should know better these things don’t work."
A third said: "You don't need to do this!! Delete the posts, take it down. Save yourself some grace."
Others claimed that it was Frankie's sportswear that had changed her shape, with one writing: "Only difference is you’ve worn high waisted leggings."
She came under fire after posing this before-and-after snap
Last month, we revealed that Frankie had gained two stone after suffering a knee injury.
A pal exclusively told The Sun Online: "Frankie had a terrible year of not being able to exercise due to a knee injury.
"She still can’t exercise and is the biggest she has ever been. She’s put on two stone.
"It’s really getting her down but she has the all clear now and is determined to get back into great shape in 2019."
