She accompanied the sexy snap with the message: "Merry Christmas everyone lots of love xxx"

And she went on to post snaps of some of her Christmas presents - including a box set of The Forsyte Saga.

She wrote: "My mums amazing she tracked down the forsythe (sic) saga on DVD my absolute fave as a child love Solmes love you Damian Lewis"

Earlier in December, Flanagan appeared in a bikini on an "I'm A Celebrity" spin-off show, where she refused to do a bushtucker trial.
