Malin Andersson isn’t “scared” to post bikini pictures on social media anymore.

The former ‘Love Island’ star - who has 11-month old daughter Xaya - has told how she will no longer let the fear of “being judged" stop her from sharing lingerie or swimwear posts.

The 30-year-old television personality wrote on Instagram: “So sadly I haven’t done my funny reels in lingerie or many posts in bikinis etc. God I even wore a t shirt in yesterdays reel cos I wanted to cover up. I was so scared of being judged about not looking the same - I’ve done a few stories but I seriously have hidden myself and I don’t even know why I let it bother me...

“Now that’s sad. That isn’t like me at all to care what people think. But isn’t it mad it can go the opposite way? (sic)"

But now, Malin no longer “gives a flying monkeys” about what she shares on social media.

She said: “So today I woke up and thought I don’t give a flying monkeys anymore because it’s my body and I feel strong and mentally better.. if I can inspire somebody to embark on better wellbeing and a strong body as long as it’s healthy and you’re happy then go for it. I will never shove any fitness or diet plan in any of your faces cos that’s not me.. but all I can say is that exercise and eating lots of nourishing food has brought my head into the best place.

Malin also defended herself from criticism for embarking on her “fitness and mental wellbeing journey” that led her to shed some pounds.

She said: “So I wanted to be honest and open with you all about my journey with fitness and more primarily the response it’s had. Whilst I’ve had so many amazing messages and support and encouragement on my fitness and mental well-being journey.. I’ve also had followers unfollow me and slate me for ‘losing weight’. Let me note losing weight came with me opting for healthier lifestyle choices over a year long.

“Now I’ve always been an advocate for body positivity and that means embracing every part of you. Whatever size. But what I don’t like seeing is people judging me for embarking on my fitness and health.. and saying I’ve lost weight and they don’t like it. (sic)"
