With summer just around the corner,we’re already being distracted from our work with thoughts of hazy beach days. And Louise Thompson isn’t exactly helping. The super-fit SW3 resident (currently starring on Made In Chelsea alongside her equally buff significant other, PT Ryan Libbey) is the new face of George at Asda swimwear, launching this week, and she’s giving us serious beach goals.
The range includes swimsuits, bikinis and seriously lust-worthy accessories, all starting at a bargainous £8 – and Louise, 27, admits the new pieces are going to be perfect for her jam-packed summer of travel. ‘Ryan’s organised a yoga retreat in Greece for a long weekend because he knows I need to relax,’ she reveals. ‘I’m intending to be away for the whole of May after we wrap this MIC series. Then I want to spend June and July in LA, doing some work and meeting new people.’ Hmm, do we smell Hollywood on the horizon? Watch this space.
Despite those incredible abs, Louise reveals that it’s taken a long time to feel confident in her style and body. ‘Some of the stuff that I used to wear genuinely upsets me,’ she tells us. ‘I don’t think it will ever come back into fashion.’ Oh Louise, we’ve all been there. Trust us, you look uh-mazing. The only problem we’ve got is, er, how do we pick a favourite bikini?
