As a former model, Strictly Come Dancing star Tess Daly isn’t afraid of getting in front of the camera, and modelling her own swimwear line is no exception.

The TV presenter, 53, took to Instagram to show off a swimsuit from her own luxury swimwear brand, Naia Beach.

The presenter revealed her new line in 2021 after working on designs during lockdown with her longtime friend and now business partner Gayle Lawton.

“Celebrating @naia_beach SS22 for @HelloMag ✨ the brand @Gayle_x_ and I created, inspired by the women we love that inspire us everyday!” wrote Daly on Instagram.

The luxury swimwear brand Naia Beach – which includes a line made from recycled fishing nets – was intended by Daly and Lawton to make women “feel comfortable, confident and special”.
