Gary Lineker’s ex-wife Michelle Cockayne looked cozy with a mystery man on the beach in Barbados last weekend.

The 55-year-old showed off her old-fashioned physique in a powder blue bikini while enjoying the sun on the Caribbean island with boyfriends, enjoying a walk in the surf with the shirtless dude.

He put an arm around her as they walked along the shoreline, both dripping wet from a refreshing dip in the sea.

Although the man’s identity is unknown, Michelle is currently single and divorced Gary, 60, in 2006.

The halter neck bikini top emphasized Michelle’s enviably toned abs, while the drawstring bottoms accentuated her lithe limbs.

Michelle arrived at the beach in a chic white tank top and jeans. Taking full advantage of the sunny climates, she soon set up camp by a lounger and undressed into her swimwear.

The 55-year-old chatted happily with her brunette female friend and the pair hugged as they basked in the sun before boarding a speedboat together.

She regularly visits Barbados and previously shared a £ 2.2 million home on the island with the sportsman.

Gary first married Michelle in 1986, with whom he has four sons – George, 29, Harry, 27, Tobias, 25, and Angus, 23.

The Match Of The Day presenter and Michelle divorced in 2006 over Gary’s ‘unreasonable behavior’, and he subsequently remarried Welsh model Danielle, born Bux, 41.

The Lineker family have been vacationing in the Caribbean for years and previously shared a £ 2.2 million home on the island.

In the Supreme Court documents, Michelle said the former England striker known as football’s ‘Mr Nice Guy’ had caused her ‘stress and anxiety’.

The former couple met when she was 14 and he was an 18-year-old reserve for his hometown of Leicester City.

“ There wasn’t one particular moment when we suddenly became a couple, but I remember asking her for our first real date to a restaurant when she was 17 and it just went on, ” he once recalled.

“I was probably sharper on her then she was on me, and now I’m probably sharper.”

Gary and his second wife Danielle split in 2016 after nine years of marriage and have remained good friends ever since.

Danielle then moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career and sought love with Nate Greenwald, an Ivy League-trained attorney at CAA.

The model, already a parent of teenage daughter Ella, 17, from a previous relationship, announced that she was expecting her first child with Greenwald in February 2017.

The couple then welcomed their daughter, Romy Wren, in August 2017.

Despite the split, Gary previously insisted that the pair remain “ good friends ” and talk to each other several times a day.

He told The mirror: “Danielle and I are best buddies, we still talk three times a day, we text all the time.”

He added: “If she comes to London she will stay with me, and if I go to LA I’ll see her.”
