Birthday girl! Julia Bradbury showed off her bronzed body in a deep white Melissa Odabash swimsuit as she celebrated her 51st birthday on Sunday.
She added her swimwear with a gold statement necklace and bracelets, while pulling her raven-colored locks back into a sleek bun.
Julia captioned her post: ‘Thank you for all your sweet birthday messages and thank you @melissaodabash for the birthday suit. #spoiled #swimsuit #beachready #dive #birthday #jumpin #white #swimwear #gift.’
Earlier this month, Julia — previously accused of cancer by vicious body-shaming trolls — beamed for a bikini-clad selfie showing her figure.
Anticipating a bunk bed, the host wrote: ‘Hey Skinny Shaders… Hope you’re enjoying the sun. My collarbones are still sticking out…& I ate chips! [sic]. #skinnyshaming #sunshine #nohate #heat #heatwave’.
‘I ate chips!’: Earlier this month, the presenter lashed out at skinny-shamers as she proudly shared a bikini photo of her ‘protruding collarbones’
In the photo, mum-of-three Julia looked radiant as she smiled for the camera while sunbathing in a lacy black bikini.
The TV host was inundated with messages of support from her followers and the next day, Julia took to Twitter to share a photo in a crop top while thanking fans for their kind words.
She wrote, “Always turn a negative into a positive. Thank you very much for my poor response. It is unacceptable to put people to shame here.
‘I have enough experience to deal with things, but millions suffer from #mental health problems and eating disorders.#bekind #mentalhealth #positive’.
Cruel: Countryfile’s host has been accused of cancer by cruel body-shaming trolls before, so he pre-empted a slew of negative comments
Feeling good: The next day, Julia took to Twitter to share a crop-top photo while thanking the fans who gathered around her for their kind words
Julia’s defiant message came after she revealed she was asked if she had cancer by cruel online trolls who ridiculed her about a bikini photo she recently shared.
Speak with The sun, Julia admitted she will continue to “promote” the confidence of women over 50 after being hammered on Instagram.
She said: ‘One of the comments said ‘She looks like she’s coming out of a chemotherapy session’. That was the thing that surprised me – the vitriol. They asked, “Have you had chemotherapy?” Absolutely not. I don’t have cancer.
“At first it just makes you really sad. Then online, very quickly, that skinny shaming just turned into filth culminating in a lot of very personal comments that have nothing to do with the original post.
“But a positive body image for women over 50 is so important, so I will continue to do what I do. I’m not going to stop for the haters.’

Julia added that she thinks skinny shaming is just as bad as fat shaming and that both types of comments can lead to people trying to “change” their appearance.
She also likened receiving nasty comments online to being bullied at school, saying it’s a “cruel” state of mind to be in.
The presenter said staying fit for her now isn’t about trying to look good or feel sexy, but rather “inner well-being.”
Julia insisted she has a “skinny collarbone” by nature and “can’t help it,” despite being cruelly told by trolls to eat a “bag of chips.”
The star recently shared her BMI stats on Instagram, claiming she is a “healthy weight.”

Her Say: The star recently shared her BMI stats on Instagram as she insisted she is a ‘healthy weight’
Julia leaned into the discussion and uploaded a photo of herself in a black crop top and matching leggings, while her caption detailed her weight and height measurements.
Julia snapped back at the trolls, writing, “for those who are really concerned,” sharing her health stats before asking the naysayers, “How do you rate?”
She wrote: ‘For those of you who are genuinely concerned, I am 5’5″ tall and weigh 9 stone 6 lbs.
‘According to the NHS BMI indicator, my BMI reading is 19.5. The healthy weight range for my height is between 8st 13lb and 12st 1lb. So I’m at a healthy weight and ‘I have to carry on like this!’ according to the website.’
She then shared a link to the NHS’s BMI calculator before addressing her critics directly, adding: ‘For those of you who are just trolling, how do you rate?’
It comes after Julia also defended herself on ITV’s Lorraine, saying: ‘This is the problem, I have a skinny collarbone, I can’t help it.
“People who say, ‘She needs a bag of chips,'” I don’t think a bag of chips goes straight to my collarbone or whatever you eat.
“However, it is a serious problem, I am quite confident about it, I can deal with it, I have quite thick skin, many people have psychological or physical problems. The fact is that one comment can mislead someone.’
Julia added that she is fit and healthy and joked that she can even “eat out” most of her family members.
