Josie Gibson appeared to be having a blast as she headed into Irish waters in just her bikini during a weekend getaway. The This Morning star has been sharing updates on social media after she headed to Westport in County Mayo, Ireland with a few of her pals.

The group have been enjoying everything from sipping on pints of Guinness to mountain climbing and horse riding on the beach. In one snap shared on social media, Josie was seen braving the Irish Sea as she took a dip in the crystal clear water.

She looked incredible as she sported an emerald green bikini for the refreshing dip, which she paired with some oversized sunglasses before posting the picture for her 729,000 Instagram followers to see.

The 39-year-old also posted a series of other clips and photos on her Instagram Story, including some of her hiking up the Croagh Patrick in County Mayo with her friends, including best pal Mia Williams who was there to welcome her out of the jungle after she took part in I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here at the end of last year.

It comes after she was seen posing with a pint of Guinness alongside Mia when she arrived in Ireland. She wrote on Instagram: "What a welcome!!! Thank you @castlecourt_hotel_westport mountain climbing and a beach horse ride coming up!!! First stop Guiness."

The trip comes after Stephen Mulhern again poured cold water over rumours he and Josie are an item. Last week, the Deal or No Deal and Catchphrase host was on This Morning to chat about his latest children's book and his appearance on the programme comes weeks after he was romantically linked to show presenter Josie.

Rumours started after they both appeared on the last episode of Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway on April 13 and the pair sent the rumour mill into overdrive when they were spotted holding hands outside a television studio as they filmed a feature for the ITV show, which came to an end after 20 years on-air.

Asked soon after about their relationship status, Josie told MailOnline: "I'm in love with Stephen Mulhern. There you go. But story of my life, I don't think he loves me." She also later told OK! Magazine when we asked her about the photo: "Stephen? Oh, he’s so lovely. We are really good friends, I really adore him, but there’s no romance in the air. But he’s so nice.

Ahead of an ad break on the show, Ben was letting viewers know about an upcoming segment. He asked whether viewers found the sound of a woman tapping her long nails on a table relaxing or annoying before explaining: "The world of AMSR, we're going to be finding out for ourselves if it can help with sleep, anxiety and stress."

Cat also went on to tease their chat with Stephen who was already making the most of the AMSR expert as he was seen lying back on a massage table while the woman rubbed bubble wrap over his face.

"I've only come here to talk about... I'm having the time of my life," Stephen laughed. "Is that because he's dating one of the family? Is that what it is?" Ben cheekily asked to which Stephen lifted his head and said: "Oh shut your face!" Then as the camera lingered on the studio waiting for the break, Stephen could be seen looking at Ben and shaking his head.

They then brought up again right at the end of his appearance on the famous sofa. "We couldn't let you go without... Josie," Cat said. "The picture says it all," Ben remarked and as the picture of the pair showed them holding hands, Stephen said; "She didn't show up to rehearsals, I held her hand and I showed her where to stand. That is it!"

As Ben and Cat refused to believe his explanation, Stephen was left open-mouthed before asking: "Why are you doing this to me." They then ended the show as Stephen could be heard muttering: "Unbelievable!"
