Cat Deeley has stunned fans as she slipped into an animal print bikini while enjoying her first break since joining This Morning last month. The presenter made her first appearance as the new permanent host of the ITV daytime show on March 11 alongside co-host Ben Shepherd.

Their official duo debut on the show came weeks after the You Think You Can Dance star' and former Good Morning Britain presenter's new jobs were revealed as they were confirmed as the new permanent replacements for Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.

While Ben, 49, and Cat, 47, had never hosted the show together before, they had had appearances in the months following Phillip's exit in May as Ben hosted with Holly while Cat teamed up with Rylan Clark and Craig Doyle following Holly's exit in October.

But due to the Easter holiday and subsequent half-term break, Ben and Cat were back off air weeks after starting their new jobs and usual Friday hosts Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary have been stepping in before their colleagues' return next week.

Cat, however, seems to be enjoying herself as the 47-year-old was seen enjoying some fun in the sun as she took to an inviting pool while donning an animal print bikini.

The mum-of-two, who is married to TV star Patrick Kelty looked sensational in her stylish swimwear as she laid back in the clear water while wearing a diving mask. Sharing a video clip to her Instagram Story, she added the audio of Frank Ocean's song Pink + White but with no other caption.

She then followed this with a photo of herself smiling in the pool alongside three pool inflatables and appeared to be in passion of a water gun. Alongside the post, again on her Instagram Story, she shared no caption but added the soundtrack of Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue's hit Kids.

It comes after viewing figures of This Morning reportedly plunged to the lowest since Holly and Phillip exited the show. When Cat and Ben first began on the show on March 11, viewer numbers peaked at just over 1.03 million but March 26 figures reached 692,500.

That is the fewest since Holly's last day on the show back on October 10. It comes as BBC rival show Morning Live continues to soar as it regularly draws in a peak of 1.3 to 1.5 million per episode, according to the Express.
