"It's weird shooting swimwear still… it's odd," she explained.

In the caption of her post she added: "It is always a tad daunting in swimwear. Regardless of age, shape, size we’re all human & all have our own insecurities thanks to today’s society.

"However, one thing I’ve discovered since having Mia is that our kids don’t care how we look in our bikinis, all they care about is if we go in the water.

"SO, wear the damn swimsuit and make those memories on your holidays!"

To which Gemma replied: "I actually can on a few more hours sleep."
