Vicky could not contain her beaming smile as she posed in the two-piece and sunglasses, while relaxing on a sun lounger.
With her pal Stacey sharing a similar snap last week, the star praised her “inspiring friend” in the caption, and encouraged her followers to be more confident.
She wrote: “Inspired by my girl @staceysolomon and her honesty and openness, here’s a picture of me being goofy happy round the pool and that’s a roll… yip, I get them when I sit down…”
Vicky shared the snap in a show of solidarity with Stacey, who became the subject of a “bullying” magazine cover earlier this week.

The former X Factor star, 28, lashed out at Now! on Twitter after they branded her “cheap” and “desperate”, in a story she called “the meanest thing she’d ever seen”.
Vicky was quick to stand up for her pal on Instagram, writing: “She’s funny, warm, witty, brave, relatable and strong and a really good friend and mother.
“Which is why we all fell in love with her.”
Stacey, who is known to be firmly against airbrushing, was highly praised by fans for baring her own natural stomach on social media last week.
