She accessorised her swimwear with a gold statement necklace and bangles, while pulling her raven tresses back into a sleek bun. 

Julia captioned her post: ‘Thanks for all your lovely birthday messages and thanks @melissaodabash for the birthday suit. #spoilt #swimsuit #beachready #dive #birthday #jumpin #white #swimwear #gift.’   

Earlier this month, Julia – who has previously been accused of having cancer by cruel bodyshaming trolls – beamed for a bikini-clad selfie displaying her figure. 

Anticipating a pile-on, the presenter penned: ‘Hey Skinny shamers … Hope you’re enjoying the sunshine. My collar bones are still sticking out…& I ate chips! [sic]. #skinnyshaming #sunshine #nohate #heat #heatwave’.

 

'I ate chips!': Earlier this month, the presenter hit out at skinny-shamers as she proudly shared a bikini snap with her 'collar bones sticking out'

In the snap, mother-of-three Julia looked radiant as she smiled for the camera while sunbathing in a lacy black bikini.  

The TV host was inundated with messages of support from her followers, and the next day, Julia took to Twitter to share a snap in a crop top as she thanked fans for their kind words. 

She penned: ‘Always turn a negative into a positive. Lots of grateful feedback about my skinny-shamIng response. It’s unacceptable to shame people on here. 

‘I’m experienced enough to handle stuff but millions suffer with #mentalhealth issues & eating disorders.#bekind #mentalhealth #positive’.

Julia’s defiant post came after she revealed she was asked if she had cancer by cruel online trolls who skinny-shamed her over a bikini picture she shared recently. 

Speaking to The Sun, Julia admitted she will ‘carry on’ promoting body confidence for women over 50 after she was hamed on Instagram.

She said: ‘One of the comments said, “She looks like she’s come out of a chemotherapy session”. That was the thing that surprised me — the vitriol. They asked, “Have you had chemotherapy?” Absolutely not. I do not have cancer. 

‘Initially it just makes you feel very sad. Then online, very quickly, that skinny shaming became just nastiness which rolls into lots of very personal comments which have nothing to do with the original post.

‘But positive body image for women over 50 is so important, so I will carry on doing what I’m doing. I’m not going to stop for the haters.’

Julia added that she thinks skinny-shaming is just as bad as fat-shaming and both types of comments could lead people to trying to ‘alter’ how they look.

She also compared receiving nasty comments online to being bullied in school and said it is a ‘cruel’ state of mind to be in. 

The presenter said staying fit for her now is not about trying to look good or feel sexy but rather ‘inner wellness’.  

Julia insisted that she naturally has a ‘skinny collarbone’ and ‘can’t do anything about that’ despite being cruelly told to eat a ‘bag of chips’ by trolls on the snap.

The star recently shared her BMI statistics to Instagram as asserted that she’s a ‘healthy weight’.

Leaning into the argument, Julia uploaded a snap of herself in a black crop top and matching leggings, while her caption detailed her weight and height measurements.

Snapping back at the trolls, Julia wrote: ‘for those of you genuinely concerned’, sharing her health statistics before asking the naysayers: ‘How do you rate?’

She wrote: ‘For those of you genuinely concerned : I’m 5ft 9 inches tall (1.75mtrs) & weigh 9 stone 6 lbs.

‘According to the NHS BMI indicator my BMI measurement is 19.5. The healthy weight range for my height is between 8st 13lb and 12st 1lb. So I’m a healthy weight and ‘I should keep up the good work!’ according to the website.’ 

She then shared a link to the NHS’ BMI calculator before then directly addressing her critics, adding: ‘For those of you just trolling: How do you rate?’  

It comes after Julia also defended herself on ITV’s Lorraine, she said: ‘Here’s the problem, I have a skinny collarbone, I can’t do anything about that. 

‘People saying: ”She needs a bag of chips”, I don’t think a bag of chips is going straight to my collarbone or anything you eat.

‘It is a serious problem though, I am fairly confident, I can deal with it, I am quite thick skinned, a lot of people have mental health issues or body issues. The fact is, one comment could get someone the wrong way.’

Julia added that she is fit and healthy, joking that she can even ‘out eat’ most of her family members.  

'Purely nasty': Julia recently hit back at the 'unkind' trolls on Lorraine and said that their cruel comments weren't 'constructive criticism' and instead were 'purely nasty'
