Ulrika Jonsson soaked up the sun as she showed off her toned physique in a patterned pink bikini as she topped up her tan in her sprawling backyard.

On Instagram on Sunday, the TV host, 53, shared a photo of her body stretched out on a recliner while basking in the sun’s rays.

Making sure all eyes were on her, she drew attention to her slender stature as she enjoyed a sunbath in the grounds of her Oxfordshire home.

She kept her head off but made sure to show off her enviable sun-kissed tan and washboard abs.

The mercury peaked at 20C last weekend as the sun returned and the UK was warm and dry for ten days.

Ulrika shared several snaps from her relaxing day, with one of her beloved bulldogs standing in the background of her post.

The doting mom also got one of her many tattoos, with the ink visible just below her right hip bone.

Ulrika also captured outdoor furniture in the background of her photo, suggesting that her family had been spending time outside over the warm holiday weekend.

It comes after the star celebrated her daughter Martha’s 17th birthday on Friday, when she admitted they’ve been “locking the horns” lately.

The doting mother of four took to Instagram to share a series of photos with her daughter, saying, “Sometimes I forget to tell her about the love I feel for her.”

Ulrika wrote a long, heartfelt caption next to it, saying she “will make an effort to do better” and that her love for Martha “runs deep.”

The presenter wrote: ‘Today 17 years ago this one was pulled through the sunroof of my belly: Martha Sky Hope. A bundle of 8 pounds of stubbornness, willfulness, rectitude and determination.

‘Social justice runs through her veins; mind screams wildly from her mouth and rhythm flows from her hips. She’s the whole package and then some. Never have I ever experienced someone like her.

“We’ve been locking the horns quite a bit lately. It was tricky and a landscape I didn’t quite navigate the way I should have. But my love for this girl runs deep and we have so many connections and similarities that I never worry about ‘us’.’

Ulrika added that she is here to be a “parent” to Martha and not her “friend”, as she was celebrating how “special” she is.

The presenter continued: ‘We speak the truth to each other and it’s something I really appreciate. I’m not here to be her friend. I am here to grow older; to love beyond measure and above all to support.

“Sometimes I forget to tell her about the love I feel for her. Sometimes I forget to hug this hedgehog in awe. But I’ll try to do better.’

Ulrika signed her post celebrating Gladys Knight, Kylie Minogue, Carey Mulligan and her sister, who also have a birthday on May 28.

She concluded, ‘You’re a special one, Moo. And today we celebrate you (and Gladys Knight, Kylie Minogue, Carey Mulligan and your wonderful aunt, my sister @miss.disan.77).

“We’re going to play @msgladysknight all day and party all night). I love you, Martha Moo.’

In the photos, Ulrika posed with her daughter Martha over the years with a photo taken after her birth and another recently of the 17-year-old with a birthday cake topped with summer fruits and a single candle.

Ulrika is also a mother to Cameron, 26, Bo, 21, and Malcolm, 13.

In 2019, the presenter announced that she was separating from husband Brian Monet after eleven years of marriage.

Ulrika and Brian wed in 2008 and share son Malcolm. They started their relationship in 2006.

In 2014, Brian also adopted her daughter Bo from the presenter’s relationship with German hotel boss Markus Kempen.

The father of Ulrika’s son Cameron is John Turnbull, to whom she was married between 1990 and 1995.

Martha’s father is Lance Gerrard-Wright, Ulrika’s husband from 2003-2005.
