EMMERDALE actress Natalie Anderson was branded the "hottest woman" ever as she stripped to a bikini on holiday.
The ITV favourite, 41, who played Alicia Metcalfe in Emmerdale from 2010 to 2015, took to her Instagram page to reveal her beach day.
Natalie donned a white two-piece which showed off her toned figure.
She left her brunette curls in a natural style and went make-up free as she frolicked in the sea.
The mum-of-one wrote a thoughtful mantra in her caption and shared: "Living…
"Rinse every bloody moment out of life…..it’s short."

Earlier this year, Natalie delighted fans as she stripped to a patterned bikini in a spa.
Meanwhile, Natalie recently opened up on her struggles with perimenopause.
The soap star discovered last year that she had entered perimenopause — and like millions of women, she feared she might have to walk away from the career she loves.
Natalie felt “off” for months, then one day she was standing on set and could not remember her lines.
“I was doing an early morning shoot and normally that doesn’t bother me whatsoever,” she explains.
“I had quite a big block of dialogue. I was working with a director that I knew really, really well and for whatever reason, the lines were just not landing in my head.
“I was like, ‘What is going on here?’
“I was thinking to myself, ‘You know what? This isn’t like me. I’m really sharp and I can learn scripts quickly’.
“It felt like I had ‘baby brain’. However, ‘baby brain’ and ‘brain fog’ are treated very differently — you have to ask why."
“I spoke to a doctor and they said it could be a sign of being perimenopausal.”
Natalie, who lives in Bradford with son Freddie, ten, and husband James, a personal trainer, says she was thrilled to finally understand what was going on with her body.
